Huge Plane Hovering for Many Moments or More, Big As Football Field

Driving west on I-90, I looked up at Mercer Island well before the tunnel. To see Mercer, I looked across the other opposite lanes of traffic and up above a hill. I saw a the hugest plane imaginable. It seemed larger than a football field. What I noticed most was that it was actually hovering, stationary, for several moments while I drove. It seemed like a plane. It was not square like a football field, but more angular like a huge triange. I saw one. Anyone on the freeway could have noticed it. The color just looked like a plane, some neutral off white, grey or silver I guess. It remained there the whole time I drove that strip of the freeway, which was many moments, and maybe a minute or more. I don't remember hearing any noise from it.

I was in my 30's, with a Master's Degree in Information Science. I was on my way to go two-stepping in Seattle. I tried marijuana and hash in college a few times, over 10 years prior. No other drugs or addictions. I should have turned around and gone back, but the person I loved was waiting for me in Seattle for a good night of clean fun. I did not report it because I assumed hovercraft had been invented while I was cloistered in college and graduate school. I assumed a plane that large was not unheard of. It never occured to me that it could be UFO until I checked with my acquaintences who work at Boeing and they assured me they did not have planes like that.
