extremly bright circular light in daylight sky that quickly vanished

I was driving southbound on I-95 between exits 8 and 7 in Stamford CT at 2:24 pm. Something caught my eye and I glanced at the upper left hand side of my windshield.

I saw an extremely bright stationary object at about a 10:00 position in the daylight sky. It was intensely bright,like sunlight reflecting off a mirror. Although reflected light tends to spray outwards - this appeared to be a perfect circle or orb approx 3/4 inch in diameter from my position in the driver's seat. I thought it might be the sun reflecting off a plane, but it was too large, much too bright and a little too low to be an aircraft. To my relief, the brightness gave way or folded to a flat and dull grey slender shape. I had thought it was plane after all. I looked away for a 1/2 a second and when I returned to look at the object and it was completely gone from view - vanished. I searched the sky - nothing. In the farthest distance high up in the sky I could see the trails of an airplane and other commercial aircraft far to my left. It was really weird. I work for an airline and live in in Fairfield County CT where there are always commercial aircraft in route. I searched UFO related sites to see if anyone else saw it because there were so many cars on the highway. It freaked me out butI'm still holding out for a logical explaination. Now I know what people mean when they say they saw a bright light in the sky. It is out of the ordinary
