Highly reflective 'fat' disk-shaped object 1,000ft off ground flying perpendicular to ground (not parallel) i.e. on end at a 45 degeree angle approx. 2 miles away. The UFO flew 500ft. under a Fed Ex MD11 wide body jet descending to land on glide path. The Fed Ex MD11 was flying just under 200mph to south. UFO traveling same speed to north east. Could not be an aircraft banking or a mylar type balloon due to shape and size viz. 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the MD11. Also, UFO did not behave as a balloon or kite i.e flapping, waving or oscillaing in wind. UFO flew straight, level trajectory at approx. 1,000ft. and disappeared above a tree line to the north east. As UFO passed by and the angle changed, I could see that it was definitely spherical but disk-shaped. Also, the brilliance of the reflection did not change as the angle to sight changed. UFO was silent and demonstrated no evudence of propulsion, but demonstrated controled flight & trajectory.
