golden orb at a high rate of speed within clouds

I am a Police officer employed by the City of Toronto Ontario . I have been so employed 29 years . In the fall of 2004 in the afternoon I was assigned the traffic enforcement detail . To do this I use a Laser speed measuring device.

In the afternoon I was on a major north south road in the city’s east end. I was seated inside my parked auto facing north. I was looking at the heavily overcast skies when something caught my eye. I looked directly overhead and saw a large golden orb. It was within the clouds but the bottom of the orb was slightly lower and visible. The clouds were low but I could tell this object was huge. It moved northbound at a high rate of speed causing a wake in the clouds. I could see it was indeed an orb from a distance before it went out of sight.

After several minutes I texted my radio dispatcher by way of the computer and asked if there were any calls for a meteor or lights in the sky. The dispatcher after several minutes confirmed some calls did come in regarding lights in the sky.

I kept my sighting to myself and made no report to my superiors. I fully expected something in the evening news about a meteor in the sky. There were no news reports to my knowledge.

Before this incident I had little interest in UFO sightings etc.
