In cloudless blue sky observed dark orange sphere following a plane and then it disappeared into thin air

My husband and I came out of a restaurant after dinner and as we were crossing the parking lot a flock of black birds flew near us. I glanced up at them and observed MUCH higher in the cloudless blue sky a jet plane (we are in the Dallas area so there are LOTS of planes). Hundreds of yards behind it a dark orange sphere was following it. At first I thought maybe it was one of those advertising signs that planes drag but then I realized there was no apparent wire and of course, why just a ball and no words? I pointed it out to my husband and just as I was trying to get him to see where it was it just disappeared into thin air. The plane continued on its way. Maybe what I saw was a child's balloon and it just popped right after I saw it but then why was the motion in perfect rhythm with the plane?
