Pure white tube - west to east - disappeared - returned & hovered & disappeared again.

I drove North on HWY 41 and passed Valley Children's Hospital, when I noticed a pure white object which I assumed was a jet or plane. It was traveling west to east towards Millerton Lake - It was climbing & I couldn't see any wings.

I took more notice & I still couldn't see any wings, cockpit, propeller, etc. Then it shot off at a high rate of speed - disappeared. I thought it was unusual as I couldn't see any wings.

Next, I get up to Avenue 12 & I see the thing again - real close. Now its basically over me going west. I pulled over as I almost went into the opposite lane. I see this thing stop & hover over a pistachio grove. I wondered how it could just stop, but it did & then it flew off.

I don' know if it was some farming drone or what, but I estimate it was 20 to 30 feet long and about 1,000 feet off the ground.
