Black spot low on South St. Louis sky

I've never seen or reported anything like this before.

I was just sitting in a parking lot talking to a friend and noticed a black line in the sky. We were on S.Kingshighway about a mile north of Chippewa. It was very small and I could barely see it but my friend saw it as well. It never moved. Not one time.

There were clouds, black and white, moving behind it at a slow speed. But the shape never moved. It stayed there for a long time. I thought it must be a weather balloon. However, it never moved. As I said, the clouds were moving but the black shape never moved. It appeared very small, since it must have been below the clouds in the atmosphere. It was tall and skinny. I watched it for about 30 minutes. I did take a picture with my cell phone, however it was so tiny, I don't believe it showed up. I moved to another location about 100 yards away and could still see it. I finally had to go, but I couldn't find it again when I got home. It freaked me out a bit, so I started looking on the news sites and didn't find anything about it. Dont' know... just felt I should tell someone.
