Dark Triangle Spotted in Cloud Cover on I-287 Near Morristown, NJ

The event occurred traveling northbound on interstate 287 between Basking Ridge and Morristown. Visibility was good at street level but the sky was opaque with low lying cloud cover.

At approximate 7:30am EST, a dark triangle moved through my field of vision on a westerly trajectory, through the clouds, disturbing the cloud around it as it traveled like a hand through smoke. I could not get a definitive view as it was using the cloud cover. All that was visible was its triangular shape and that it was black or very dark grey. It was silent, had no lights and was moving at a fast rate of speed. Viewing lasted for about 4 seconds. My best estimate is that the object was about a half a mile downrange and maybe 200-300 feet above the ground, Just high enough to use the cloud cover. Considering the distance and size of the object in my field of view my best guess is that it was about 100' from edge to edge. Morristown does have a small airport, but whatever this was, it just didn't look like a plane or anything you would normally see.
