Horseshoe crab - shaped silver object quickly overtaken by our AA 757, at same altitude - not recognised as an aircraft.

20 mins after take-off from Boston, daughter and I spotted a silver horseshoe crab-shaped object at same altitude and estimated 1/4 mile distance from our AA 757, which quickly overtook the object. Definitely not a plane. as it seemed to be hanging almost vertically.

We interrogated the Pilot and Co-Pilot on landing at Manchester, England, who did not see it or pick anything up on radar.
