Object(s) spotted in landscape photo

This will be very brief. The object actually appeared in a landscape photo I took, so I didn't see it in person. I took two pictures from the same spot about five seconds apart. The object is in the first photo, but not the second so I ruled dust on the lens. I enlarged it to see if it was behind the cloud and it appears to be, so I ruled out a bug flying close to the camera or a bird higher in the sky. In considering the object to be a plane it is at an odd angle for a plane unless it happened to be climbing in altitude, also it would have been in the second photo since it was taken so soon after the first.

After further look, I spotted what appears to be a second object higher and further back although it lacks adequate definition.

The sun was to my right and still fairly high in the sky. Not much other info to give since I was only snapping a photo of the landscape and not really paying attention to anything else.
