it was a dark metalic long object, the smoke trail was faint.

it was off in the distance and i noticed a jet coming down towards earth.then i got my binoculars to get a better look and then i noticed an object just to the upper right of the jet. It sat there suspended in air ,not moving and it was at a 45 degree angle,it stayed there for several minuties.

Then it appeared to get further away, but i could still see it. Then it just vanished into the clouds. My wife said it looked like a paper clip with a smoke trail (very faint).

The other witness agreed with my wife. I think it looked more like a frisbee with a faint trail of smoke
