Something Strange in the sky-Monroeville, PA-11/3/2022-12:23pm

I am a 60 year old registered nurse. I have lived in Monroeville since the 90s and have worked at the same hospital (forbes hospital in Monroeville) since 2006. Right now I work part time. I don’t drink and I don’t use substances. I have NEVER seen anything in my life that I couldn’t explain. I don’t believe in ghosts and I believe that other beings and worlds can exist out there in the universe ( you can’t prove that they DON’T exist), I have never actually seen anything myself. I have never known anyone who has seen anything either. Sure I enjoy watching “Ancient Aliens “ and “Finding Bigfoot” once in a while, but I don’t go around looking for stuff.
I left my house (about 2 minutes away from the sighting). It was a bright sunny day, sky was a bright blue, no clouds in the sky. I was driving east on Ramsey Rd in Monroeville towards Haymaker Road. In the attached map, it is at the green dot where I saw the object. I looked to the left towards the Gateway Heights pool entrance and it was hovering in the sky, I would surmise somewhere over where I have drawn the circle on the map. It was low to the ground and what drew my attention was that it was COMPLETELY still. I thought that it was a plane that was about to crash. I slowed my vehicle til I came exactly to the pool entrance, then I stopped to continue to observe.
It was a boxy shape, that’s what made me look twice. Not rounded like planes or helicopters are. It was completely dark gray, no shading or variation in the color, no shiny metal looking , the sun was not glinting off it at all. A dark monochrome matte gray. could not see any windows, wheels, rotors, vapor trail or contrail. What came to my mind was that it looked like a plane a child would build out of lego bricks. All the angles were square, even on the “tail section”. And the front nose of the object looked like one of the lego bricks that are slightly angled at one corner ( like to use for a roof when you play)
I kept watching for about 2 minutes, it remained completely still, also completely silent. Also no lights (but it was bright out so I might not have seen them). I also mentioned the sky was blue, well around the object there was some kind of weird haze, not mist, but it made it look like I was looking at a black and white movie ( like how the object was so solid gray) that doesn’t make sense but that’s what I thought.
At this point I saw a car coming behind me in my rear view mirror. When I glanced back over at the object, it appeared like it was tilting toward me . And it almost looked like it changed shape and became triangular. Also the color changed from the matte gray to a shiny silver metal color ( like stainless steel) and I could see windows along the length of the triangular portion. The sunlight was glinting off whatever the windows were made of . It made me think of glass when the sun hits it. It was still silent, no vapors.
The car behind me got closer so I resumed driving to the light at the corner of Ramsey and Haymaker Rd. (black dot on attached map). I light was red. I stopped and deliberately looked at the time on my dashboard. It said 12:23pm. I drove to the nearby church parking lot entrance (pink dot on map) so I could turn around and continue to observe. I got to the church parking lot and looked out over the area , and the object was completely gone. And the haze was gone the sky was a pristine bright blue.

When I got home from my errand, I starting googling planes and military planes. the only thing that is close is the big Chinook helicopter, but the thing I saw was boxier (at first ) and the only slanted angle was the slight one at the nose ( I attached a line drawing I did when I got home). It was also silent, and I saw no rotors. Also it was really big, seemed bigger than even those big military helicopter. Also, helicopters don’t “tilt” and change shape.
