Hovering bright disc

Going south on Freeway 101, observed a very bright shiny object (metalic looking) hovering over the Black Mountains towards the west. Like a disc cross section, thicker in the middle and thinner on the sides. Clouds passed in front of it. I could detect portions of it behind the clouds, but then disappeared. First I thought it might be an airplane turning and reflecting sun's light at certain angel of rotation, but did not change shape.
