Object stood still in Charleston sky

The dark grey-black object high in the NW sky stood still; it was bell or dome-shaped. A friend and I were lounging in my pool, just chit-chating and I was looking up and began to focus on what I thought was a bird. Then I realized the bird wasn't moving; I stood up and really began looking at this thing which looked like a dot in the sky. My friend couldn't see it at first, but when she focused in at exactly where I told her to look, she said, "yes, yes, ooohhhh, that's weird, what is it?" It wasn't until I got the binoculars that we could see that it was sort of dome or bell-shaped. It was really far away and we couldn't make out an details. We watched it for about a half an hour, then the night sky faded it out. Wonder if anyone else in the area saw it.
