black disc-shaped object rose from behind a mountain then stopped and moved quickly to the south against a heavy wind

I was smoking outside my apartment when I saw this thing. I'd say it was about 30 miles from my home, hovering in front of the. It was a black saucer-shaped disc that appeared to be rotating with a slight "wobble". It rose slowly straight up, slowed almost to a halt, then moved directly to the right (south) against the wind which was moving to the north. As it moved south it passed behind a tree, blocking my view. I ran uphill to get a better view, but it had disappeared.
