A very bright white rectangular object which did not appear to be moving, but instead a clould moved over it and then it went behind Green mountain.

My husband,and I were on our way home, we were stopped at a stop light. At the stop light we observed, in the northwest sky a very bright white light that was rectangular in shape, heading in a westerly direction. It was observed between one power line and it approximately filled that space. The lenght was approximately three to four times the width. It did not appear to be moving but instead the rotation of the earth covered it with a small dark cloud for about 8 to 10 seconds, and then as the earth continued to move it went behind the mountain. The sky had dark small clouds and the sun was not shinning. Where there were no clouds the sky was a dull bluish gray. The front of the object appeared to be flat and as we looked towards the end of the object the bright white grew fainter and the end looked some what like a thinning tail. It's trajectory appeared to be flat and parelell with the earth. The overall size of the object was about one third of a full moon. Ini! tially, we thought it was a contrail, however, the size was too large, it was too bright a white, and it did not dissapate.
