Black high speed object, rod?

I saw an interesting cloud, irrelevant to the sighting. The cloud was interesting enough that me and a friend were looking at it and talking about it for 30. My point is, I was studying the sky.

I decided to take a picture of the cloud. I took two photos just i case one was blurry. I looked at the pictures a day later and noticed something that I did not notice at the time of the photo. It appears to be a fast moving black object. I know that it was not a bird or a plane because I would have seen it in the time preceding and following the photos.

The clouds in the sky were completely dark except the one little tip that must have been high enough to catch the sun light. It appears that this object is high enough to catch these sun rays also, but it remains black.

Of the two photos the object was captured in the first photo, second photo was taken about 10 seconds later.
