Sighting Details

I was working 3 miles south of town i stopped working for a moment walked to my pickup to grab a water while walking i looked at the sky because there was a large contrail from a jet,while looking at that i noticed a shiny object flying just above the contrail at first i believed it was another jet at a higher altitude it wasn’t moving at a speed that would suggest otherwise.After watching the object for a few minutes i noticed it was a sphere and it was much brighter than a plane reflecting sunlight the object stopped flying east to west hovered just above the contrail for approximately 5 minutes then suddenly went straight vertical for what i can only assume to be 2 -3 thousand feet after reaching that altitude the object hovered for around 10 more minutes and then seemed to vanish i did take a few photos hoping to capture a image which i did but it is a cell phone photo so quality isn’t the greatest i did contact a friend during the event to see if he could see the object from where he was and he could not after that i checked my photos and to my relief i captured 1 decent picture
