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.

    I don't know what's going on but there's helicopters flying around for the past 3 hours AROUND MY HOME in Rome NY 13440 it appears to be that they are searching for something there are state police choppers and military choppers I counted 4 of them so far, the 2 police choppers have search lights on, and the military ones are flying with one blue light on the bottom of their helos but with no other running lights, I live next to griffiss technology park which used to be Griffiss AFB and not to far from homeland security training facility in oriskany/westmoreland NY. all I could think it could be is maybe sometype of training mission or are they really searching for somebody or something?! I am checking all the local news and radar in the area to see if there is something going on or happening I will keep posting to let everyone know whats going on, this never happens around here?!!
