Two objects appearing as plantets in photos from the moon etc., appear in place of a white cloud in the north west sky, well after suns

After sunset, towards the northwest, against a backdrop of rain storm, a white cloud stayed white long after the sun disappeared, and after sunset. I wathced the cloud, begining as a little puff, horizontal but very white, it began to drift down towards the earth and divided into two forks, which I thought might be a tornado. This is why I took the photo. I took the snapshot on my digital camera, stepping out the back door. You can see the 8 foot board fence, which gives an idea of elevation of the objects in the sky. When I downloaded the photo, the cloud is not apparent, but these two objects are visible. I did not see them, they must have been obscured by the wispy white cloud, but I don't see how. They did not appear to move, the cloud eventually disappeared or disappated.
