UFO spotted after military aircraft flew by.

I was sitting in my car with the sunroof opened up at a local business. I heard an approaching helicopter flying over. The helicopter was a military style helicopter. The helicopter was flying around 3000 feet, headed in a southeast direction.

As soon as the helicopter flew past, I noticed what appeared to be a shiny rectangle like object in a near stationary position. The object resembled a jetliner's fuselage minus the wings and tail section. The UFO appeared to be about 15,000 to 20,000 feet high.

The object looked silverish and white in appearance with a light bluish light on the right side of object that was facing east.

The object was only moving slightly to the east at maybe around 5 MPH. After observing the UFO for around 20 seconds, it darted out of view heading northeast. I do not know the speed, but guessing I would say it was doing mach 1, or faster. The UFO made no noticeable sound when it was moving slowly and when it flew away at a sudden speed.

Side note: At the time the weather was calm, around 80 degrees fahrenheit with a few scattered high clouds.
