Sighting Details

me and my girlfriend were sitting on our back patio when we saw what appeared to be a ufo. at first it looked like a pure white bird fluttering in the sky. it then floated over fairly low in the sky in a se direction. it looked like it had a wing span at first . then as it got lower and closer it appeared to be a large sheet of plastic caught in the wind. it looked like a large plastic bag fluttering in the wind but it was bright and shiny. it continued ascending in the sky and the sunlight was reflecting off of it which made it appear metalic. it continued floating across the sky then it stayed in one spot for awhile. it continued to go up higher and higher until it looked like a star in the sky, then a pindrop until it finally went so high that it was no longer visible and totally out of sight. there was no cloud cover and the sunlight seemed to reflect brightly from the object. i tried to video the object with my phone camera and i did capture the object. the sun was so bright that it was hard for me to focus on the object with my phone. i captured some stills of the object and blew them up and enhanced them also. i have never seen anything quite like that before! we heard a jet in the sky about 20 mins after the sighting which was unusual since we seldom hear jets in our area.
