Silent cylinder/rod object flying over New Hartford CT

I was sitting on my backyard deck when I looked up to the sky in a southeast direction when I saw a cylinder/rod shaped object traveling in a straight line from northeast to southwest direction. It appear to be a white color and did appear to reflect light. No wings, lights or other features. Speed was about that of an airliner.

The unusual thing is that it did not make any sound. No engine or air sound at all. I could not determine how high up it was but about 3 minutes later, I saw a commercial airliner traveling approximately the same path as it was leaving Bradley International airport. If that's any help.

Duration about 1 minute.
