Linear Light Area in the Sky

At first, I thought my eyes were playing a trick on me! Then I looked at my dashboard to see if something on there could be causing a reflection on the windshield for what I was viewing. After determining neither one of those things was happening and observing the sky for several minutes I cannot explain what I saw. I am only reporting this because of a report on Filer's Weekly e~mailer which shows a similar pic to what I saw received yesterday. It was a definite light area in the sky that had clear linear boundaries. It was a patch, very large of an inestimably large lighter area in, that was so large I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Instead of stopping and watching it longer, I turned at the traffic light when it changed to green and didn't look back. I couldn't accept what was happening and must have denied to myself that it was real and didn't look back or think about it anymore. It was like my mind shut off! Filer's Files shows a pic of wha! t I saw and it spread across a wide linear exact area of the sky, which was a lighter color. it was ahead of a storm front which I had been observing for perhaps a half an hour as I was proceeding from New Vienna on Antioch Rd. off the Rte 28 turn off heading North West. This was on Sunday nite last. I was watching the sky for some time as the storm front was moving from East to West which I thought was highly unusual and I couldn't remember seeing that phenomenon before, since my memory was noting how unusual that was. In front of the storm front as I got in front of it heading due North after entering U.S. 73 is when I observed this strange patch in the sky! I couldn't even begin to estimate its size, but it was huge. For some reason my human mind couldn't accept or deal with it and I must have gone into denial and decided subconsciously to ignore it! As I write this I am realizing how much it must have disturbed me to review this experience.
