During a thunderstorm I was watching out of my kitchen window which faces East, I noticed what I thought was a plane emerge from a cloud which had just had one of those inter-lightning flashes. I thought nothiing of it until the "plane" made a 90 degree turn and begin to rise straight into the air. I watched until it entered another cloud which, after the craft entered, had a inter-lighning flash. I waited for the "plane" to emerge but it never did.

Appeared to be a plane. Emerged from a cloud after an inter-cloud lighting flash. flew for a short distance in a stragiht line. Made a 90 degree turn upwards and began to ascend straight up into another cloud which had the same type of flash but never emerged. Flashing lights just like a plane..but where did it go?!
