Strange sight from an airplane

Saw something strange whilst on a flight back to Belfast from Glasgow recently. We were flying above the Irish Sea, above the clouds. Looking out of the window I could see a dark grey/black mound that seemed to be sticking out of a sea of white clouds, the best way I could describe it is like the peak of a mountain sticking up through clouds (only smaller). It seemed to stay beside the plane for a few minutes then we slowly overtook it. Scientifically, the only explanations I can come up with is a solitary rain cloud amongst the sea of white or a gap in the clouds showing the Irish Sea below, but a trick of light making it seem a solid object??? I've always been sceptical on UFOs but this stumped me..... Any thoughts?

PS sorry no photos but was on a plane so wasn't allowed my phone on...

Did the object have a specific a triangle, or sphere? Did it have straight edges, as if it was a manufactured object? Or was it more 'natural' looking, like a cloud?

Whatever it was, I'm sure it was strange!

Yeah, it wasn't quite smooth but kind of dome shaped, maybe 4-5 metres across.

This is it. Undeniable proof would you like to be on my pod cast? If your pod cast goes well i can get you Jamie Maussan's show, i got a foot in the door with him.

Something like this?

No, not at all. Only if it was the very top of it, no blue streaks or anything like that.

Come on Zaiger - I enjoy your posts on here as you seem fairly level headed and don't buy into a lot of the junk that gets tossed around here, but this guy saw something strange. If he wanted he could have just gone to Mufon and posted his sighting, but he wanted to discuss it with others. I know he didnt provide a lot of details at all but theres always a chance that someone else has seen something similar ya know? You and I both know that a lot of obviously fabricated videos get posted here and i think its a breath of fresh air to hear a genuine experience now and then. Not to say that this was a very interesting well detailed sighting, I just don't want others to feel discouraged from posting their experiences/sightings here without "proof". Most people on here are so hungry for the ultimate video that will without a doubt prove ET presence that they disregard reading up on research already done. I'm not saying you are one of those people but don't be so quick to dismiss someones genuine experience.

True and im sorry guys.

Well to the OP
Try to at least sketch us or photoshop something that looks like what you saw. So we can have more to think with on this.

Sorry for the lack of info, I'm never really on the UFO section of ATS so don't know the level of detail usually described. Like I said earlier, kind of a dome with rough edges, 4-5 metres across (which if had a crew or "beings" on board, they would be very small!). To answer if it looked "natural" or cloud like, yes, I would say that, which is why one of my scientific hypotheses was a solitary rain cloud amongst the white. I've never heard of or seen such a phenomenon in weather, so I just posted to see if anyone has seen similar.

Re sketch or photoshop - I can never seem to post pics on ATS. Can't find the function, I've contacted ATS a couple of times but no reply..
