Two brown metal pipes side by side in cloud that did not move.

While in flight on Hawaiian airlines flight HA 246 from Maui to Ohau, Sunday November 27 at approx. 11:30 am I looked out the window and saw what appeared to be a brown image protruding from the white clouds we were above. I kept staring at it because there was blue sky and white clouds and this out of place brown. I focused in and saw what looked like two metal pipes side by side that were straight and then turned outward like an elbowed steel pipe would look. The exact color was a rust colored brown. This was at an altitude that could not be manmade and fixed to the ground as I’m pretty sure we were over the ocean. It appeared to not move at all and whatever it was attached to was not visible. I was so taken by what I was seeing I never thought to get a picture with my cell phone. If this was a UFO the pipes I was seeing was attached to it. It could not have been another plane as it was too close to our plane and did not move. Our plane finally ! moved on and I lost sight of the strange pipes.
