Duration:less than 30 seconds
I was looking at the clouds and trying to guess if there was a storm brewing over the lake, when just for perhaps 30 seconds, I saw a bell shaped large silver object appear. It was stationary for the few seconds that I saw it. The vanished into thin air.

I was on my way to pick up my children and was watching the clouds as we live near the lake and I had left the windows open and was worried it would begin to storm. As I was driving I just looked up and was also watching the car in front of me on I-90 and suddenly I saw this object that appeared in the clouds and it was very shiney and bright and it looked like a giant bell. It was only in the clouds for a matter of 30 seconds maybe a little longer and then when I went to make sure I was not getting too close to the car in front of me, it vanished. I saw no trails and I know that it was not the blimp nor was it an aircraft as it was stationary.I picked up my children and we looked again in the clouds on the way home but the clouds were starting to clear and we didn't see anything.
