White multi-sided shape leaves trail over Mt. Hood wilderness, appears to be falling.

I was taking pictures of the sunset. When I downloaded the pictures was when I saw the object. I took many pictures in succession and it was not in the others. The object was reflecting the setting sun. Seemed to have a main body with appendages. It appeared to be falling as it left a trail of some kind. There was one and it was white because of the reflection of the sun. I feel much of it was shaded. Some say it looks like and airplane but because the trail it left and the direction it was going that would have been very unusual. I have been a skywatcher all my life as my Dad was a pilot and was always teaching me how to identify aircraft from the ground. I have a college education and am married with two adult kids and a grandchild.
