A black object appeared between the contrails of a jetliner for a short period of time and then disappeared.

My job as a designer and inventor of off road equipment takes me into the back mountains of the Arizona Sonoran Desert almost weekly. This last April while out field testing equipment I noticed a commercial jet liner go overhead. This wasn’t unusual for this area because Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is only 40 miles away. This is a well known flight path for jets on approach to Sky Harbor. A short time after seeing the jetliner go by I happen to glance up. I noticed a black object had appeared between the contrails of the jetliner a was following it. It followed the jetliner for a short period of time and disappeared. I happened to have Kodak Z740 Camera handy, which has a pretty good zoom and was able to get one photo.
