Spotted unusually shaped, unlit object moving north.

I am a police officer and was working a temporary security detail for a local power company on 1/1/2000 at approx. 210 am. I happened to look up and noticed what I can only describe as a "blob" roughly circular in shape moving from south to north. If asked to provide a better description I guess you could almost describe the object as amoeba-like in its shape. I almost didnt see it because it was completely unlit, I could only see it do to the ground lighting from the power plant and other chemical plants in the area. (This area has a heavy concetration of chemical plants.)It was hard to determine the color but appeared to be slightly off-white or very dull gary in color. It was not moving particularly fast, maybe about the speed of a small propeller plane, and flew in a straight line, not erratic at all.It also made no sound that I could detect although there was a quite a bit of noise from the power plant that may have obscured the noise, if any, that may have come from the object.I had never before heard of any reported UFO's having the same strange shape that I saw. I told the shift supervisor about what I saw but he didnt seem to concerned. I have not reported this to any other agency though I may try to conatc the local FAA in Houston to see if anything strange was reported about that same date, time and vicinty. The location is in east Harris County, Laporte, Texas, a suburb of Houston (east of Houston) just south of the Houston ship channel. The area is a couple of miles southeast of the San Jacinto Battlefield and monument and about 1-2 miles west of the Highway 146 ship channel bridge. I not not want my name released publicly.
