Glowing ojbect drops below and returns to cloud cover

My wife and I saw a UFO two nights ago while traveling westbound on FM 1764 W. After going over the TX Hwy 3 overpass, the object appeared ~22° to our left and ~41° in the sky.

Estimating the cloud cover to be just under 1000 meters (based on cloud type) and using trigonometry, I estimate that the craft’s location at approximately: Latitude - 29°24'13.23"N Longitude - 94°58'28.31"W Altitude - 967 meters The object was an obtuse, almost spherical, oval-shaped object with a only slightly smaller pod at the ‘top’. The object slowly descended just below the nimbostratus cloud cover, hanging in mid-air for ~9 seconds before steadily ascending back into the clouds. Entire duration of visibility may have been 12 -13 seconds.

The entire object emitted a dull, light-grey glow, with a slight aura surrounding the object. I do not recall any further discernable details.
