Small cloud becomes trapezoid shape and disappears

What appeared to be a small, darker cloud rising diagonally faster than normal clouds in the area became a trapezoidal shape with straight edges and faded into the background color.

I would guess it was about thirty feet across.


((CORRESPONDENCE WITH SOURCE OF REPORT))

Night time, or daytime, sighting, please? Was it 07:30 hrs., i.e. in the morning?

Thank you for the report!

((RESPONSE))

Yes, 0730 hrs. Weather was broken cumulus clouds 90% coverage at about 2000 AGL, 20 mile visibility. Temp probably around 56F. The way this object took on the color and texture of the background clouds was so impressive that I could not find words to tell the driver of my vehicle.
Rarely am I speechless, but this event did it!
