|White circler object following a commercial airliner.
I was sitting down eating my lunch that afternoon when I looked up and saw a jet passing overhead. It was a very clear day with out any clouds in the sky. I would say that the commercial airliner was about 5,000 feet above the ground. I noticed that behind (and above) the airliner was a white circle following it. I would estimate that the object was around one eight of the size of the airliner. I would say the object was also less than 500 feet behind and above the jet.
I watched the circler object following the airliner for about four minutes. The white circler object then suddenly changed directions and started going in the opposite direction. It just stopped moving forward and started going 180 degrees in the opposite direction! I then watched it for another minute or two then it seemed to just disappear.
