Strange craft seen from air plane traveling fast and low over Arizona desert

I was flying from Portland,Or to Pheonix, AZ roughly 20 minutes before landing i looked out my window and saw a small metalic looking craft going incredibly fast over the desert. I calculated that our plain was going roughly 500 miles an hour and this thing was going at least as fast as we were.

I did my reasearch and this thing was moving faster than any small aircraft can go. Another intresting fact that should be noted is that it was flying roughly only 100 to 200 feet above the desert mountains.

I watched it for roughly one minute before it disapeared off into the horizon. I know that this was in no way an aircraft also because i saw other aircraft earlier that were farther away smd they were completely defined, while this craft had no deffenition, no wings and no tail.

My estimation of the shape is a disc shaped object but given its rapid rate of speed it was too hard to tell.

I do not know if anyone else from that flight saw it i had no knowledge of it.
