Duration: 5 minutes
I saw an object, flying, that I could not identify.

I was driving North on the NW expressway, paralell to HWY 99(W), on my way to Belt Line Eastbound. About 35 degrees up from the horizion, directly in front of me was a object, seemingly not moving in any direction I could tell. It stayed there for about 5 minutes until I turned to head east. I tried to keep sight of it out of the driver's side window, but was unable to. At first I thought it was a plane, but it didn't have a visible vertical stabilizer or wings that I could see. Also it was not moving across the sky in any direction. It was silver, (or white?) much thinner than it was long and high in the sky. The weather was clear, with no haze and the sun was behind me. As far as background, I am a former ESL educator with a BA in East Asian History from the Universtiy of Oregon.
