White stationary spot/ plane nearing

Typically a late morning commuter to Windsor CT (via 91 N or 202 through Simsbury CT), several planes trailing in the otherwise blue skies are now a norm to see albeit odd seeming. They seem more prevalent than in years past but have been chalking it up to personal exposure to more open skies as summertime was spent kayaking several CT lakes/rivers and new commute toWindsor.

This Friday afternoon around 3:30 pm, traveling E on DayHill Road to stop for coffee, viewed 5 plane trails and 2 active planes in the clear blue sky. As I stopped at a red light, I observed one plane traveling nearly vertical on the left side of the moon. The 2nd active plane trailing captured my eye as it was so high and juxtaposed to the daytime-visible moon; it actually trailed directly in front of the moon. The former photographer in me longed for an SLR camera to capture it. As I watched it traveling left to right over the moon, to it’s right was a white spot in the sky that made me look longer. The spot seemed to just hang in the air, like a hot air balloon but no possible hot air balloon would (could) be so high. It did not appear to be traveling like a plane would through the sky, but just hanging there. And as quickly as I noticed it, it was no longer visible.
