UFO sited over Illinois

Around early or mid-January 2004. Caught a flight from DFW to Grand Rapides, MI. About and hour into the flight, I noticed a cloud separation to the right of the plane. Initially, I dismissed it as being the shadow of the plane.

About a minute later it moved moved ahead of the plane. A few seconds later, it repositioned itself to the rear of the plane, then back to the right flank of the plane. Whatever it was, it never came out the clouds and it virtually flew parallel to the plane. I would like to believe it was the plane's shadow, but there are no shapes to conclude that.

A minute later, it disappeared.

I managed to get four digital pictures before it was over.
