I saw a shiny slender object in the sky while driving north on 435 at about 7:30. There is a large Bayer factory next to the highway, and in the distance, past the smoke stack, I could see the object in front of some clouds. It looked like it was really far off in the distance, however it was very distinct, anyone looking could have seen it. The airport is some distance away further north, so I am not ruling out it was an airplane. But, it didn't look like it was moving. After I changed lanes by about Front Street, I could not see it anymore. Just seemed strange, I could not see any lights on it, the whole thing just seemed to reflect in the morning sun.
