Unusual object sighted in Pacific Northwest sky

When returning inside with the newspaper, I glanced up at the sound of a passing jet headed for the airport. As the jet passed, I caught sight of another object, oval-shaped, light-colored with a dark circular spot in the center. I was looking up at a steep angle so could only see the bottom of the object. The only reason I spotted it was because the sky was overcast with dark clouds that day. With a normal clear sky I would have never seen this object. It was slowly moving from north to south with a slight oscillating wobble about the vertical central axis. Althought the object had a definite shape, the edges were oddly indistinct as though viewed through diffuse glass. When it reached a spot due east of me, it stopped and hovered for a minute before almost leisurely continuing on south until out of sight.
