A large, white, wingless object sped across the sky

My buddy and I were outside getting some tools from our truck when I heard him say, "Look at that".

I looked to where he was indicating, and saw a white stubby looking object traveling across the sky to the west of us in a northerly direction. I asked him if he could see any wings or tail and he said no. Neither could I.

As we watched, the craft maintained its course at a very rapid rate of speed. It soon moved beyond our sight as it passed behind a cloud.

While wondering what we had seen, and what its actual size had been, my friend spotted a commercial airliner at approximately the same altitude. We could see that the airliner was quite thinner, a little longer, and had obvious wings and a tail.

The sky was dotted with white clouds that day and the object was visible to us for less than a minute before we lost sight of it.
