Fighter jet and UFO over North Houston

On June 12,2000, I was riding my bike down the street, facing the North side of Houston. I looked up and saw a US air force fighter jet flying west, just below the clouds. Since I normally like to see the contrails from the jet, I was watching closely. I saw a object above the contrails. At first I thought it was a helicopter because it setting very still. After staring at the object, I realized it was round and metallic, emitting no sound. It was tilted in about a twenty degree angle, with it's belly facing toward the south. It had a grey-silver belly and the top half was a darky to black. I kind of dark color I have never seen before that appeared to be vibrating. The sun gleamed off the bottom since it was late in the afternoon. Two teenage boys, nearby playing basketball, were also looking up at the object as I was riding by them. I said to them, "Looks like a UFO doesn't it?" and they responded, "Yes, it sure does". I look at the sidewalk for a second and when I looked at it again, it had disappeared. I stopped and looked around for awhile but it did not reappear. The fighter jet left the area and did not return. Now I believe I have seen a UFO.
