motionless night time-exposure photo of unexplained object

I had set up[ my digital camer to take some photos of a thunderhead, hoping to capture some lighting bolts. Camera is a Kodak DC-90, and I uas using the next to highest quality setting. The camera was on a sturdy tripod, and I was taking some short-duration time-exposures. I saw nothing while taking the photos. When I later downloaded the photos to my computer and looked them over, one of them had a very strange object slightly above the main cloud. I am surprised that the object looks to be motionless during this time exposure, and I am also puzzled over the shape and 'lights' on it.

I'm wondering if you could take a look at the photo, and provide some explanation for it?
