Black object hovering in front of clouds in san fransisco

My girlfriend and I were on the train, emerging from the subway to above ground,(we were coming from the airport on the BART) and i was kinda spacing out at the sky, when i noticed a black thing hovering near some low clouds. It looked like a bird, but it wasnt moving at all,and it was kinda far so it was hard to tell exactly how large it was. I saw it for like 3 seconds, and i pointed it out to my girlfriend, but when she look it disappeared behind the clouds. Then 30 seconds later i saw it again and i pointed it out to her. We looked at it for another 15 seconds, but then the train kept going and it either disappeared behind some clouds or a building we went by.(i dont remember exactly) There were other people on the train, but they seemed to keep to themselves as i was pointing it out to my girlfriend. They might have noticed me pointing it out but nobody else looked up to see as far as i know. There were only a couple people by us who would have noticed. San Fransisco has a lot of hills, so i contemplated it being the top of a very tall light or electric post on a hill, but i saw nothing under it, and it was pretty high up,in front of the clouds, i would estimate 500 ft? But i am really bad at estimating, so i could be wrong. I also would like to stress that they were clouds, and not the fog San Fransisco is so commonly used to.
