White disc against blue sky

Myself and my step-son were outside painting my house when I was observing a jet airliner going across the sky from west to east. I then spotted a white disk crossing the path of the jet contrail after the jet had passed the object. The white disc was in the southern sky moving to the north. It was moving slowly so I went just inside the house and got two binoculars so we could observe this object. The sky was mostly clear with only a few white clouds. The object could be seen very easily since it was reflecting sunlight. It was very high in the sky but looked like a white disk through the binoculars. We could see the shape of the wings on the jet but not on the disk. It moved slowly north to almost directly over us and then stopped and remained stationary for about five minutes as we observed it. It then looked to be getting smaller like it was climbing straight up and eventually vanished from our view
