Floating dark object, only 40 ft. away , thought to be Alien probe,I thought of camera, it sensed that, shot up

This was in the day, I live in a trailer, my dog ran to the back door barking like crazy, I thought someone was in the back yard. I let him out and he ran to the back chainlink fence, looking up and barking, I looked and saw a dark object about 40 feet away, 20 feet off the ground. It made no sound, daylight did not reflect off it, it was sort of round at the top and square at the bottom, it was small, about 4 feet high by 3 feet wide, it was just sitting there in the air, sort of twisting slowly, as soon as I thought " I have to get my camera" it bent backwards and started to ascend up, slow at first , then quickly, till it entered a cloud bank, but I could see it as a small black dot, it just sat there for a while, then was gone. It seemed to be examining the large Petroleum tanks for the airport fuel cache.
