2 UFO sightings in my area in the last week!

Last night, while taking my nightly stroll through my apartment complex, I was looking up at the sky observing the stars. The sky was pretty clear considering we had thunderstorms earlier that day. I spotted what I took at first to be a star because It was a bright yellowish white colour, solid throughout and very high in the sky. However, I then noticed it was moving. I stopped walking and watched it. It was flying in a strait pattern but going rather too fast and smooth for an airplane. I took off my headphones to listen for sound, to make sure it wasn't a plane or for some bizaree reason a helicopper (though it seemed too high up for this) I couldn't hear anything but the normal car noises ect. It didnt have any light changes and I didn't see any red lights or pulsating lights like on a plane. I walked forwards to watch it until it disapeared behind a tress near by. I continued on my walk, shortly afterward, maybe three minutes later, a plan flew over head. It looked nothing like what I saw minutes before and was at the normal height in the sky.

This is strange to me because its the second sighting I've had in the last week. I can't remember the exact day, I think It was Tuesday or Wednesday. It was about 1:30-2:00pm I was driving to see a friend at work when I noticed a a silvery object really high in the sky, higher then I had ever seen a plane go. It's shape was somewhat circular and I couldn't make out any wings. I observed it until I turned a corner and it was gone from my view. Both sighting I was alone.
