Location: Nokomis, FL
Shape:
Duration:5 minutes
Black Vertical rapidly developed smoke not showing wind shear, followed by contrail in another direction.

There was a dark almost particle and fairly quickly fading (over 3 minutes) vertical smoke cloud from the sky to the ground very straight up and down (and there was shear wind...I am a pilot so it was very unusual) then moments later a while contrail of smoke that had the shape of a spinning object in the same sight line to the west of observed viewpoint which flew by for a few minutes then suddenly stopped the contrail.

Perhaps a meteor breaking up?

It was accompanied by low pitched non-engine noise....also something I have not heard before from aviation flying.
