Disk shaped ufo seen from airplane window

My family and I were on our way back from Costa Rica and had taken a connecting flight in Atlanta, Georgia. Upon leaving Atlanta airport, Delta Flight #125, at 1615 hrs, I was seated in the last aisle of seats on the left side of the plane, seats 46a and 46b.

Approximately an hour to an hour and a half into our flight at approx 1700 to 1730 hours I was looking out the window when I saw a disk shaped ufo fly from right to left of my window heading west as we were flying east towards Los Angeles. The sighting lasted about 5-10 seconds in duration.

Our altitude was 32,000 feet and flying at 512 miles per hour.

I was not aware of any other passenger was aware of the sighting as a movie was playing at the time.
