Huge triangle with sun set reflecting off of it

Driving down March rd. from work when I noticed a huge triangle object.. It was bright orange/yellow admits a greyish sky. The sun was setting and it matched the same colours, but this object was much higher then the sun set. I couldn't take my eyes off it. As I got closer it look almost like a rocket ship going straight up with a huge smoke trail behind it. The top tip shined like a star once I was close. The clouds eventually rolled over it and I couldn't see it anymore. From far away I though it was maybe a con. Trail from a plane but it was so short. The object didn't move an inch. It got larger as I approached it and looked more like a perfect triangle cloud with sun reflecting on it but the object was high in the atmosphere apart from grey clouds rolling in. The sun reflected off of it as if the surface was relatively smooth. Others must have seen this as it is a busy road and the object stuck out like a soar thumb. Could not take my eyes off of it. It! was awe inspiring
