Duration:20 seconds
We were flying North on Alaska Airlines to Seattle. A couple passenger jets had passed us a few miles away going South. I was looking at the cumulous clouds near the Sierra Nevada to the East of my window. I saw what I thought was another jet airliner going South, and I squinted to see wings but I could see none. I also thought it was strange that it headed for a cumulous cloud and went right into it instead of flying around it as all the other planes did. I looked for a minute or so to see if it would emerge from the other side of the cloud, but it never emerged. I have no explanation for what I saw.
