UFO video? Or something else?

I went to a website that people post wierd pictures and videos that are cool looking or they can't explain, and a lady wrote in and provided a video. Most of the people who write in I can usually tell they aren't unexplainable, but this one has me stumped. I'll post her letter and her video and let you guys decide.

3-20-2007 about 11 AM. We were headed to Medford and a shiny thing caught my eye. So I zoomed in with my cam and got a short video of it. It appears to stay in the same place, well besides the truck bouncing me around. Above is a picture clipped from the video that I cropped and enlarged. Here is the link to the video:
YouTube - A Plane?

It sure as hell doesn't look like a plane to me.

EDIT: damn, just yesterday or the day before maybe this video only had 2 or 3 comments, now it has like a million pages of comments! Crazy haha...

Oh yea, and I'll save you some time. The woman who filmed it said the video is so shitty for lots of reasons:

1.) she told her driver to pull over but he didn't see the object, and they were on a busy curvy and hilly highway, and they were on the clock at work.

2.) she said the object was just a dot to the naked eye. She said she had to zoom in 40x to get this shot. Zooming in this much is the biggest reason the camera doesn't stay still, other than the fact that they were driving down the road

3.) She didn't have a tripod on her so even if she did pull over the video still would have been shaky as hell (anyone who has tried to film something zoomed in that much would know how hard it is to do without a tripod)

And you can tell the object doesn't move. Just pay attention to the cloud formations surrounding it, it never changes position, the edges of the clouds stay the same distance away from the object the whole time. The only way that thing is moving is if the car she's in is going the same speed as the object, and also circling it at just the perfect angle to make it look stationary. If a truck can move 300 mph, in a large perfect circle revolving around it, I guess it could be a plane.

Blimps normally don't fly right next to a large storm cell. I think that's kind of a massive safety hazard. Never know though maybe the pilot is a total dumbass. Also keep in mind she is zoomed in 40x, if that was a blimp it would be a helluva lot higher than physics would allow it, so if it was a blimp, it would still be a mystery. Also the reflection of the sunlight and the shadow beneath it implies that it is metal, and sort of disc shaped or maybe cylindric like a plane's underside, but not a blimp. I'm not a blimp expert but I don't think they're made out of metal. This object is clearly metal imo just by looking at the sunlight reflecting off of it.

Just pause it every other second throughout the video and it's pretty obvious it's not a blimp.
