Tiny, black dome-shaped object seen near Hwy 60 in Mesa

Was traveling eastbound on the 60 and saw a small craft approximately 200 to 500 feet south, approximately 50 feet in the air. Craft appeared to be dome-shaped, black, and possibly 5 to 10 feet in diameter. The object had no lights, and there were no anomalous effects surrounding it. It hovered motionlessly in the air for most of the sighting, but occasionally drifted back and forth, and appeared to waver or change shape at one point. It may have been a black trashbag lifted by a thermal, but the shape seemed too symmetrical (except for the few seconds when it 'wavered', as if behind a heat wave). Driver confirmed the siting, but could not watch for the entire duration. Object disappeared after passing behind trees, and did not come out the other side.
