Cigar shaped object next to jet

I saw an object to west of a jet traveling south in the high noon position. Jet was high enough to create a clear contrail which did not obscure the viewing of the object.

Object was similar in shape to jet without wings, possibly longer. It was not moving. The jet was about 100 yards away and continued south, while the object remained stable.

The “ufo” was silver/white in color and remained in the same position for at least 45 seconds. I was unable to follow any longer as I was moving out of viewing position. The sky was clear with no clouds at all.
