Fast white hazy object larger than jet incredibly fast and noiseless and higher than 30K ftHazy sky. Outside listening to radio. Heard passenger jet from North following N/S jet lane at about 30K ft. Turned around to watch it. An oblong-shaped faint white object from East, heading westbound, crosses in front of passenger jet path. Not a bird. Not shining. At first I thought it crossed at altitude lower than jet. But it passed through layers of haze at altitude above jet. Not an altitude optical illusion as would be due to blending by an averaging reflection, rather by occultation from haze. Object was never well-defined body as well as was the jet body. It "gently" changed course to SW path. I estimate its speed at about Mach 2 to Mach 5. Incredibly fast. No contrail. No shock front. No sound other than passenger jet sound. Silent object. Larger than jet body. Do not know what jet vendor was, but was like an MD-80 in general shape, two engines, leaving persistant contrail. I cannot assign the object to anything I know of.
