transparent teardrop/bauble UFO

I was driving along in my car to attend an interview at Ford car dealership, on Ashton Old Road, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Manchester, England. It was a really really clear bright day (crsip and cold) but not a cloud in the sky and really really clear, (which is unusal for Manchester anyway!-and we had had nothing but bad weather recently. But this morning was really clear blue sky (not one single cloud in the sky). Anyway i am driving up and glanced up to admire the glorious blue cloudless sky, when i noticed (as I am looking through my windscreen (towards my left hand side in the sky) the shape of a transulent/transparent, what i can only describe as tearshaped object in the sky. It reminded me of a Christmas bauble/decoration. You could clearly see this thing in the sky at first i though it was a hot air balloon, but it was see through, but you could clearly see the outline! i couldnt comment how far up/the distant in the sky (same as planes - but i would say that size wise it would be about the size of 4/5 jumbo's. Obviously i was driving but kept looking up to see that it was there and it was for at least a good two minutes or two. I arrived at my desination and turned left of the Ashton Old Road, and when i pulled up and got out of my car, it was gone!!! - Couldnt belive what i saw, as like i said it was such a clear day/sky - and it was so obvious/prominent
