Sighting Details

While flying from San Jose to Mather Airport I noticed a reflective sphere out of my window. At first I thought it might be the moon, but it appeared to be metalic. it stayed in the one position as the plane turned to the east. Approximately 30 seconds after i first saw it, i pulled out my iPhone 5 to take some pictures. Unfortunately the camera function had no zoom feature and the image is quite small. I snapped a second picture as the plane turned east and the object could no longer be seen through my window. There were several fires around the area at the time and there was some high level smoke mixed with the clouds. After approximately 15 minutes as the plane started to head north and tipped right wing up, I could see the moon out of the opposite windows. It was quite large and had a yellow/orange cast to it. It appeared much larger in the window frame as well. This would place the moon to the South West while what i had seen earlier was to the North West. The object I observed definitely appeared stationary and had a reflective silver metallic surface low on the horizon while the moon was larger and to the East at that time, glowing more yellow/orange.
