Tiny object seen flying close to large airplane.

While lounging outside, looked up and saw large airplane flying west to east. If due north on a level plane is 9 o'clock and due south on a plane is 3 o'clock and Hades is at 6, then the airplane was flying at about 11. While observing the airplane, I noticed what seemed to be an extra part hanging off of one of the wings and wondered if the plane was coming apart. Then the piece, which was not much larger than a dot, moved so that it appeared as if it were flying between the airplane's south (near) wing and its tail. That's when I realized it was a separate, flying object. As I watched the dot seemed to vanish for a moment and then I noticed it now flying just in front of the aircraft. They both then passed over the Cleveland Avenue hill extremely close together. I checked my watch, which read 7:56 PM.

It seemed way to small to be a regular aircraft. The airplane's apparent length was slightly less than the diameter of a dime held at arm's length. The object flying around it appeared smaller than any of the engines.

If any reports of a jet being buzzed come in for tonight, you've got ground corroboration.
