Rope-like object over Meridian, Military jets in the immediate vicinity.

While working on a construction site near Meridian, ID, we heard military jets over head which turned our heads skyward. While trying to locate the jets an object caught my eye, but noticed that it was stationary, even as the patchy clouds in the blue sky passed by.

I quickly realized the object began to change form from an indecipherable glob into more of the shape of a rope or fiber. The rope-like object was white but I could almost discern a slight black banding down the length of the object. It slowly curled and twisted just as a worm would as the clouds (below the object) passed quickly, which ruled out the possibility of it being anything inflatable like a string of balloons etc. The wind did not move the object!

About 2-3 minutes elapsed when the object suddenly began to fade and within 3 seconds, it vanished. After some research, i learned these sightings are called "Sky Serpents" and this was an exact stereotype. I discovered that they ! are very common and have have even shown up on some NASA footage. I do wonder if the military gets were scrambled to intercept this object. Their path was liner and didn't seem to engage, (basing on the sound as it tracked across the sky) but, the sound trail of the jets did pass in the immediate vicinity of this object.
