Disappearance of object and vapor trail

About 13:30 hrs on July 15th 09, I was sitting on my deck reading a book facing south. My upper body was at a 45 degree angle. When I went to turn the page I briefly looked up and saw an object pulling a very large vapor trail behind it. The only reason I started to watch the object was because the object seemed to be traveling faster than a jet would at such a high altitude. I know that means nothing unless I knew the exact altitude. But, thatís not my story..as it moved north it passed in front of the sun so I put my hand up to protect my eyes and waited for it to emerge from the other side of the sun. It never reappeared. Then, I looked back at the vapor trail and it was gone. I watched a vapor trail today ,07/17/09, that was in approximately the same spot at the same time and it just floated away in the upper atmosphere wind. It didnít vaporized, just floated away.

Whereas the one I saw the day before just vanished within maybe a few seconds.

I know this is not very exciting but thought I would report it in case you are trying to accumulate sightings to use as fodder at some future congressional hearing.
