|As I was driving aprox. 10:00, I saw a white inverted rectangle in the overcast sky being intersepted by two aircraft (contrails).
I was driving North bound on I-465, headed in a SE direction according to my compass in my van. At about mile marker 25 I noticed a tall rectangle in the overcast sky. The sky was typical gray-blue, as commonly seen here in the winter. I think this is why I noticed this shape, it was just up there in the sky to my right. It was white in color, rectangle in shape with a glow around it. Traffic was light to moderate at the time so I was able to look around in the sky and to my left, about North, I saw two contrails. So now I am watching this shape to my right and the contrails which are closing in on the shape on my left. I kept comparing the two situations and the two contrails were headed right for the shape. As the contrails got close to the shape they seem to split into seperate directions around the shape. The shape never seemed to move, change in appearance, it just floated there. At this point I went past the point to see any more activity. I have been around aircraft all my life. My father was in the Air National Guard and my uncle was a high ranking officer in the Air Force. I also have worked for Boeing in WA. In the report I refer to contrails moving to intercept the shape because I never saw what these aircraft were.
