Flying wing spotted in Atlanta

At 7:30am I received a call from a friend, who excitedly urged me to go outside to see the paths the normal jet traffic was clearing through a low level cloud bank. It was amazing to see a narrow swath of clear sky showing through the clouds as several jets passed overhead, and burned away a clear path. This alone was a phenomenon that I had never witnessed in 54 years.

But, as I was watching is facination, I saw what looked like a shadow moving through the cloud bank from north to south. The shadow was the shape of a "flying wing" .

I desparately tried to get my friend to see what I was seeing, but was unsuccessful.

Although the object appeared as if a shadow, it could not have been, insomuch as, it was approx. 5 degrees from the vertical, and the sun was less than 5 degrees from the horizontal.

I have no idea what the object was, but it was there, and it will remain unforgettable!
