Posted: 6/24/2016
Location: Pike Creek, DE
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
A jet was flying west at the normal altitude that I see jets flying everyday. I know from visual experience how far apart jets need to be from each other.

A small silver dot was flying parallel to the jet at the same speed. The dot was very close to the plane about 1/2 inch to scale. I thought that it was possibly a fighter escort, but I would have heard the fighter jet. There was no vapor trail from the dot. There was a long vapor trail from the jet. It was a crystal clear day.

The dot paralleled the jet for about 10 seconds. Then the dot vanished with no change in direction.

The jet continued to fly with no change in course, on the same path that I see all jets fly every day. I watched the jet until it was out of site. The silver dot never returned.
