Oval object with depth stationary, viewed from plane

I'm an engineer, I was on a plane flying to Detroit. I was looking North at a break in the clouds. I could see green farmland below through the clouds, the clouds were thicker on the East & West sides as the break in the clouds gave me the ability to see the ground below. The plane was approximately 25,000 feet up. I would not have noticed anything if the object didn't move at this very moment, it was stationary right next to the West cloud, then it moved forward some, then to the right then forward again to then hide in the East side cloud edge. I couldn't believe my eyes. The object was oval but it had depth and the top surface was pure white. This oval was the shape of a track & field track, so parallel in the middle with rounded ends. But the top surface was perfectly flat, and pure white. I would not have seen it, if it didn't move. The sides were a grey/white color, I could see very thin vertical black striations. The object was rigid, the top white surface came to a very obvious edge, then 90 degrees straight down. The vertical drop was what appeared to be about half what the short length width was. The object had no obvious propulsion mechanism, no observable heat waves, no radiations, no light emmissions that I could see. It did not tilt to move forward, did not tilt to the side, then did not change its orientation to move forward again. It just moved, I believe I would have missed it if it didn't move at all. From my eyes it was approximately an ! inch to 1.5 inches in length. Length is the rounded ends to each other, width then was the parallel sides to each other, depth was the white edge to the bottom of the grey striations. The bottom also came to a very rigid end. This object definitely appeared to be hiding in the clouds. No windows, no radar apparatus, no spinning anything, no external attachments.
