dark rectangular object ascended into the sky near St. Louis International airport

On 10/12/2010, I saw a large dark colored rectangular object while in the parking lot of Quick Trip in Bridgeton, MO. This is near the St. Louis International Airport.

I was just about to leave when I noticed a man entering QT, who seemed fixed on the sky as he walked toward the entrance. Out of curiosity, I looked up and saw this dark rectangular object moving west very slowly. The object appeared to be moving at the distance one would expect a helicopter to fly.

I got in my car then rolled down the window in order to hear if it made any noise which it did not. As I watched the object, it appeared to stop then it got smaller and smaller as if it were a helium balloon disappearing into the atmosphere.

I watched it for a minute or more, until I could no longer see it.

As I was about to leave, the man I saw earlier exited the store. I asked him if he saw that and he said, "Did you see that?" I said, "Yes, did you see that?" again, and he then asked, "Did it fly over the store while I was inside?"

I told him how it ascended into the sky until I could no longer see it.

I was still in awe of what I witnessed and just drove away. I felt relief that someone else confirmed seeing it.
