"That's no ordinary cloud."

My mother and I had just come from a clothing shop, entering the parking lot I noticed how there wasn't a cloud in the sky towards the west, except for one that seemed cigar shaped. It looked really odd. Not your normal shape like cloud. The sun was setting and it set the cloud off in a orange yellow color. I pointed it out to my mom who was looking in the wrong direction then she caught sight of it, she said oh it's just a cloud. I said that's no normal looking cloud. Then I noticed it going staight up higher into the sky. I know planes have to climb a higher altitude to be able to travel a longer distance. This thing kept climbing higher till you couldnt see it anymore. As it was climbing it look grayish in color, long in body that of a cigar shape. I tried to follow it's direction then I lost sight of it.
