Shape: Cylinder
Duration:10 seconds
Huge black cylinder, in front of cloud.

We were at Hasting's in Maryville, next to Foothills Mall, picking up my wife's paycheck.

It was a cloudy day and my wife was speaking to me, as I was looking out at the skies.

In front of me, and approximately 45 degrees above the horizon, in front of a large, very high cloud, thousands of feet in altitude, so high it is hard to estimate. I saw a very large, well defined, black cylindrical object in front of the cloud. The object was stationary, and horizontal, and was there for about 5 seconds.

Suddenly the object rotated to the vertical, and while completing its rotation disappeared backwards into the cloud it was in front of.
