Star-like object trailing plane, followed by silver-whitish gray pill object

Around 11:35 AM, I went outside to get fresh air, I looked up toward the west to look at the moon (which was barely visible) and I saw the first object gradually appear. I started dim like a star then became brighter up to a 4.4, like Venus. A few seconds after it came into view it started to swing from north to south then started to travel south, very slowly. I called my mother to view what I was viewing, just to confirm what I was seeing and she saw the same thing too. I told her to keep an eye on the object while I grab binoculars.

By the time I got back, my mother said it had faded away, I'm assuming it went back up into the atmosphere? Then a commercial aircraft passed by and then we saw another star trailing the commercial craft - that one was blinking. I brought up my binoculars to look at the plane and the blinking thing that was trailing it but it and the plane left my view because my house was obstructing my view. However, in the area where we first ! spotted the blinking thing that was following craft I saw through the binoculars a silver-whitish gray pill. It looked like it was tumbling to the east then froze, then glided west and then it tumbled up into the atmosphere where it faded away.
