southwestern skies of Birmingham, black object dart and zig zag then flee without trace

I woke up early Sunday morning and went outside to have a cigarette. After sitting down and looking up, I noticed how clear the sky and how thinly transparent the clouds were. Right before sunrise. I noticed a black object in the in the clouds.. thinking it was a big black bird, I watched it. Then it made sharp movements and seemed to zig-zag then shot like a bullet and left no trace. I searched the skies for several minutes to see if it was traveling thru patches in the clouds but it was gone. I had a very clear open view of the sky. Birds and planes are easy to follow at the height that I saw this object, but this just vanished in a flash!
