round black object hovering over line of trees

Sitting in slow-moving traffic going north on Algonquin Rd. I looked towards the sky and off in the distance, above a line of trees, I can't guess how high, saw a round dark circle, not moving for at least a minute, then I lost sight of it for a moment going past a sign along the road, and when I saw it again, it had gained in altitude by several hundred feet at least, and not moving again, then about a minute later, just wasn't there.
