Triangular shaped metallic object over ottawa

I was riding my bicycle westbound along the Ottawa River Pathway between 4-6 pm on a sunny day. I looked up and noticed a stationary triangular form (more the shape of a sail) in the sky, at about a 45 degree anlge, shiny and silver metallic in appearance. It was huge compared to a commercial airplane at that distance but I can't say for sure how far it was.

I observed it for about 7 seconds, looked away to see where I was going, looked up again but it was gone. I scanned the sky but there was no sign of it. There was no vapour trail.
