grey oval in the sky in the daytime in Michigan

I was traveling west bound on Interstate 96 just west of Grand Rapids Michigan. It was a very cloudy day. I saw this medium grey object through my windshield. It was moving right to left (north to south) and It looked like something descending through the clouds. As I watched it move across my windshield I was waiting for it to break out of the clouds but it never did. I believe it was traveling away from me and not descending. It moved very fast from right to left and then it made a sharp turn to the right and then back to the left agiain then disappeared behind some trees on the horizon. It seemed to kind of change axis when it made its turns. I would estimate it was probably 3 miles or so away when I lost sight of it. It was medium grey or a dark silver color and was about a half an inch long as it appeared through my windshield. At the speed it was traveling, and the abrupt zig-zag pattern it took, there is no way this could have been any kind of airplane. It was skimming through the clouds and did'nt appear to be very high up in them. This was my first UFO sighting.
