Rectangular UFO sighted on I-75 in Florida

8/2/09 As I was traveling North on I-75 in Florida at approximately 10:30 A.M., between Mile Markers, 270 and 276, I observed a rectangular object that was charcoal in color traveling from the East to the West and was very clearly visible against the white clouds.

It was fairly low in the sky. I first thought it to be a sign pulled by an airplane, but as I got closer it was obvious that there was no writing on it. It was somewhat transparent but charcoal in color. And I would say the dimensions would be similar to a tractor-trailer or train boxcar. It was perfectly rectangular in shape.

I took some pictures with my I-phone but was traveling approximately 78mph and taking them with one hand while driving. This is a low quality camera and I do think I can see the object in a couple of them. I would like to discuss this event with anyone who has seen a similar object.

I am a retired Tool Maker, sixty year old Male.
