Saw a disc shaped object from a distance to close.

Me and a coworker on the job in a company truck, he was driving. we crossed the Fort Pitt bridge leaving downtown Pittsburgh on route 28 north, we saw from a distance an object. The road headed us toward it and we at first thought it was a hot air balloon, they often leave the downtown point. It was from a distance flat on the bottom sloping to a near point on top. Closer the color was brown and driving nearly beneath it, it was a lighter brown, circular, seamless with three half round equally spaced protursions on the bottom. The rim was lower than the protrusions they could not be seen from any distance. It was stationary about 300 feet above the HJ Heinz food plant. We made a turn at the next light to cross the 32nd Street bridge I turned to look it was gone. He and I saw it but our discription to others were different. His opinion gave it a higher rounder top than mine.I had the best view of the bottom out my window. There were many people on the road the traffic so heavy we could not stop. That evening I listened for a report on TV, there were none.
