Bright silvery object that appeared to change back and forth from a tube to a saucer high above Austin, TX

I was looking up at the clear blue sky with a neighbor when we saw a silver object shooting across the sky at a very high altitude. She called it a high flying jet, but I noted that it was was not leaving a con trail. It first appeared to have two sections or wings and was traveling length wise like a tube. But as it passed overhead in a straight line it appeared to bank and looked somewhat saucer shaped at two different times and flames shot out one time for a short distance sideways to its direction of travel across the sky.
