Light Bar in Clouds UFO

It was a windy warm evening in May, a cloudless sky. I was about to get into a taxi cab, just scanned the sky because it was so clear. Suddenly, one single dark gray puffy cloud appeared, 'scurrying' very fast with the high winds. Just as suddenly, a bar of lights appeared out of the front of the cloud, looking much like a photographer's light bar, with extremely brilliant lights. It almost emerged out of the cloud so that I just had an impression of a dark gray 'metal' in between the lights. I pointed u at it and told the taxi man, 'look at that'.. but in those few seconds, it covered itself again with cloud. The taxi man didn't catch it so I just shook my head in wonder, didn't explain what I saw or ask him if he saw anything other than the one cloud. No other clouds appeared any where in the sky during the next half hour it took to reach my destination. There was no sound from the shrouded object other than the very strong wind in my ears and whipping through the trees. I did recount it to a local radio talk show host once, date uncertain perhaps 1 to 10 years later, whose subject was UFO's. The exact year of sighting is not remembered. I was on my way to a bowling banquet so for important studies, I think this could be researched from records of the lodge hall where the banquet was held, if their records are still intact.
