Noticed a marble sized (from my viewpoint) black object just hanging in the air.

It was roughly 5:40 in the morning, and I was on a day off from working the night shift. I went out onto my front porch to have a cigarette when I noticed a marble sized (from my viewpoint) black object just hanging in the air to my upper-right. I watched the object while I smoked, and noticed the sun shimmer off of it's right side. I then realized (from the sun shimmer) that the right side had a flat angle. I continued to watch the object as it just hovered in the sky motionless. I then decided to grab my Sony Handycam to get a zoomed look, and to record it. However, my camera was out of battery power after time-coding a tape for a video editing class I took about 6 months earlier. I then watched as the object very slowly moved out of my eyesight, and into the distant clouds.
