Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
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.
