UFO with black exhaust sighted in Independence, MO Oct. 11, 2003

The night sky was overcast with an odd low greenish haze/fog with the full bright moon shining through it evenly all over the sky. It was bright enough to be able to see well enough to walk without a flashlight. It was not raining and the temperature was cool. I noticed an uneven break in the clouds at about 75 degrees from the horizon and pointed it out to my brother and daughter who were with me. We noted that there was a very dark black cloud right behind this light area, and no other dark clouds in the sky. The object moved from South to North very slowly but the bright light did not change shape, so I began to suspect that we were not looking at a break in the clouds at all, but rather a craft of some sort with a round half moon shape with fog concealing it. The black cloud did change shape constantly and looked like some type of exhaust, but it stayed right behind the bright object. At one point, I could see stars behind both the black and white areas at the same time. It was very large - the size of a lunch plate held at arm's length. No sound was heard by any of us. We watched it for about 10 minutes until it dissapeared from sight. It is hard to explain, but I "felt" that it was a very large craft that might have been transparent with a black exhaust coming from it. I would be very interested in finding out if anyone else saw this. It is interesting to note that I drove my brother home right after this incident and after only 10 minutes we saw that the entire sky was free of any fog,haze or clouds, and the full moon was out. I wonder if the UFO caused the fog in order to conceal itself. I have no photos as I knew they would not come out, but I could do a drawing of it if desired.
