Disk shaped object seen by Seattle drivers over I5

I am a graduate student with two bachelors degrees from the UW in subjects that both serve as practical debunking instruments in relation to UFO phenomenon or other unusual events experienced by human beings. I was, and still try to be a skeptic. I study science and specialize in mental health.

However, while driving along Interstate-5 near Seattle, I saw something I could not explain very well but will do my best now.

It was a craft in the sky that appeared on a side view at first, as a black slit, not moving, then panned towards me revealing its disk shape and the top of the craft. From this view it was shiny and light in color, but opaque like glow-in- the-dark material that is not glowing. It then veered to the left and flew back up vertically, seeming to be sucked into the clouds.

After this, a small monoplane flew by in the area traveling east. Then a commercial jet flew nearby traveling northwest. This gave me scale and relative perspective to the craft.

When the craft disappeared, it was as if it was fleeing from sight of the two planes that would soon come into view.

I then looked to the car next to me and noticed a man in a BMW also looking up at the area in the sky talking on a cell phone. It appeared that other drivers were looking up as well.
