While photographing a strange-looking oblong cloud a slice appeared to be pushed ou

While outdoors with a child I saw what appeared to be a long oblong-shaped cloud; because of its length, its nearness to the ground, its symettry and the lack of fuzzyness around its edges I went inside, grabbed my camera, and returned.

The cloud was already beginning to dissipate and change shape. As I pointed the camera a thin rectangular shape began to appear, slice across the cloud and emerge as if being shoved. As it exited, the cloud appeared to fill in the space left behind.

At that point I had to take the child inside and when I was able to return several minutes later the u.f.o. was gone.
