An object following a military jet, disappears

My Husband and I were outside sitting in our front yard when we saw a jet in the sky ( the kind that leave a vapor trail) I told him to get the telescope so we could see the jet better. He took just a second to grab the telescope and was trying to follow the jet which was moving across the horizen when I noticed another object behind it that seem to just appear. I assumed at first it was another plane as did my husband. we noticed the other object was just hovering near the jet sort of following it . the object was shaped more like a silver football and we comented how odd it was . Perhaps a minute after we saw it appear it just disappeared in front of both of us . The object would have had to move at an impossible speed to disappear the way it did. we live by Point Mugo & Port Hueneme so we wondered if somthing was watching our military jets

((NUFORC Note: We normally would wonder whether this might have been some type of military refueling operation, although the description above presents certain elements that seem to militate against that possibility, we believe. We do not know what the witnesses observed. PD))
