Why was it necessary that a jet come from nowhere and deposited this contrail to dissapate the rainbow object?

In blue sky at 12:00 a rainbow -like cloud moving toward the east, was intercepted by a jet which left a short contrail causing the rainbow-like cloud to turn white when it came into contact with it. The jet looked gold in color but could have been reflecting the brilliant colors from the rainbow-like thing. the rainbow shape was not a normal arc. It looked like a wide arrow. The colors were brilliant and several pictures were caught of the thing and then the jet intercepting it.

The short contrail which was left by the jet caused the rainbow to turn white and they could both be seen for about an hour later.

Observers are land owners with homes on a slight rise about 2600' in the high desert of Wash. State
