cylinder shaped craft enters cloud bank and never reappears

I was standing at the kitchen sink and looked out of the window. Traveling in a north-south course was a dull silver cylinder shaped object. It was traveling at a leisurely, steady pace and I first thought it was an airplane. However, I suddenly realized that the object had no wings or tail.

I retrieved my binoculars from the nearby utility room and walked to another window in the kitchen which faces south. I expected to get a better view of the object from this vantage point. Just as I reached the window, the object entered a small cumulus cloud bank. Although I didn't have time to look at it with the binoculars, still was unable to see any wings or a tail that would indicate a plane.

The object never reappeared from the cloud. There were no other clouds in the vicinity of this one. I searched the skies for approximately 10 minutes both visually and with binoculars to no avail.

It definitely wasn't a blimp or an ultra-light. Even if it had been one or the other , it should have reappeared from the clouds. There was no haze in the skies.

Weather conditions at the time of the sighting: Sunny, partly cloudy. Temperatures 86 with the winds from SW 10 mph. Visibility at 10 miles.
