It was football-shaped, totally illuminated with white/grey(the body)2 rows of strobing white lites top and bottom

On this early morning sighting, I am a truck driver who was traveling North on I-495 in Delaware, when I noticed a big bright light in the Eastern sky traveling north over the Delaware river, at first I thought it was a blimp, but as I observed it closer this was definitely not a blimp! When I finally got a real good look at it,this thing was totally illuminated(the entire "body" was white/gray, like the full moon on a clear evening) it had a row of white stobing lights on it top and bottom, it was totally white, no other colors. It was very low in the sky, and was moving at a medium speed, it was shaped like a football, it was the strangest and most spectacular thing that I have ever seen in the sky. Unfortunately, I could not pull over and get out of my truck to see if it made any noise, and I did not have a CB in the cab to ask othet truckers out there if they were seeing the same bright object that I was. All I know, I used to be in the USAF and this object was definitely NOT an airplane or a blimp, like I said, it was totally illuminated and I did not see any wings or stabilizers or a cockpit, it shone like the full moon, with strobing white lights
