Appearing in the west moving east a cigar shaped object reddish orange in color moving fast followed by what appeared to be a F 16

At approximately 21:00 hours, I took my daughter for an evening bike ride; when she ask me,"Mommy what is that?" I looked up and saw moving west of the location I was facing of the moon, a cigar shaped object, reddish orange in color moving from east to west at very fast pace. It was large enough to see the distinguished shape of a cigar. It did not flash light or blink and there was no sound.

I am 6ft. tall and if I were to point my hands in a clock type motion encompassing the entire sky; from where I was standing, my right hand would be a 1 and my left at 9. My daughter and I watched it for approximately one minute. There were some people that came out and I ask them if they could see it; which they could not because at that time it was already far west and then it vanished.

I was unable to keep up with it to take a picture or video with my phone.

Approximately 30 seconds, no more, a military jet appearing to be a F-16 followed the same path. 10 Minutes later we were back at home and saw the same jet flying back in the direction it had came from.
