Stationary cylinder-shaped UFO seen in clear daylight.

I was sitting on a sidewalk bench, scanning the sky. I noticed at about 70 degrees up in the Northwest a fixed object. I watched it for at least 7 minutes and it never moved. It was barely discernable to be like a cylinder, about the size of a grain of rice held at arms length. If you took a pencil and cut the eraser and the metal thing that holds it, that is the proportion. The sky was clear blue. I shifted my gaze several times and even looked away to attempt to get my wife to come out of a shop she was in there. Each time I expected it to 'be gone' and not physical. I fixed it over nearby landmarks and it never moved. Slowly, a small puffy cloud came from the east and covered the object. As the cloud moved on, the object had disappeared.
