A UFO was filmed over Rome airport as a jumbo jet took off into the sky. What is it?

The video, posted to YouTube, shows a typical takeoff for a jet, even a beautifully filmed example, as the jet lumbers into the sky at either sunup or sundown. As the jet turns gracefully in the air, a spherical white object is seen floating in the distance.

The YouTube user who posted the video seems to understand the aesthetic moment and added an ethereal audio track to the video, lending a spooky atmosphere. But the intent is quite clear. What is that UFO hovering in the sky?

As the jet flies off to its destination, the video zooms in on the unidentified flying object. At first it appears it may be a star or even the moon. But as the camera zooms in it's obviously neither.

It must be very far away from the camera, because it looks so small in comparison with the jet. But it's plain that the object is actually gigantic, round and silvery. It's a complete mystery as to what it could be. A very lucky catch though.
