Oct 4/04 from plane - two dark brown sticklike objects sticking out of the clouds - then dark line gliding away

While flying back from Orlando, Florida to Buffalo, New York, about 30 minutes before Buffalo (I am not positive about the time) I happened to look out the window of the plane. My husband was sitting in the window seat and I was sitting in the aisle seat (no one in between) on the left side of the plane in row 6 or 7 (before the wing). I saw what looked like two dark brown sticks or poles sticking out of the clouds on a 45% angle (again I am not exact). I was so stunned to see something sticking out of the clouds that I sat there running all the different things it could be through my mind (and coming up with nothing). I finally said to my husband what is that - he tried to see what I was seeing and blocked my vision for a moment or two. I then heard my daughter in the seat in front of me say, what is that? By the time my husband moved out of the way, all I could see was a dark line like a shadow moving or gliding over the clouds away from the plane until we couldn't see it anymore because of the wing. My daughter and husband only saw the dark line part. We asked the stewardess and the pilot (once we landed) but no one seems to have seen anything. I still do not know what could have been sticking out of the clouds at the height. We had not begun out decent to Buffalo yet.
