Questions about photo of distant jet

Distant jet invisible to naked eye

All I initially noticed was a contrail...I could not see the plane. I can identify a number of things wrong with this photo:

1) Sun is at an angle behind to the left of the plane - little light on the photo side.

2) The distance?  I don't know, 10 miles +/-?

3) The Florida humidity was 40%. Anything that far would be subject to atmospheric distortion.

4) Camera setting:  Set as Scene:Sport for quick burst.

5) Handheld but supported on top of my car door.

What else? Suggestions?

Do the bright spots indicate the number of engines: 4?
