Possible UFO in the South

Interesting object. I was outside near sunset and I saw what I first thought was a bird but the motion was odd and the object was much larger. There were birds in the sky at the same time. It was traveling from West to East. At about 1500 - 3000 feet, but this was hard to tell. It was a very dark, black object. I could tell it was diamond shaped. It was rolling and flipping as it traveled along. It maintained altitude and heading as if it was on a direct path. The was no sound. There was no exhaust. And it maintained a relativly constant speed. Not very fast and slower than a light aircraft in flight. The rolling and flipping motion is what I found odd. I first thought it was a huge bird, but I could see it was not a bird after it past by. My next thought was that it could be possibly be a balloon, but, again, after it passed by, I could tell it was not. It was a very dense, dark object. And it was diamond shaped. There were no lights or anything luminuos. I have no idea what it was. I was hoping the local news media might have had some reports of this, but it appears not. So I would have to say what I saw tonight would be classified as a unidentified flying object. I am hoping though someone else reported something similar as this object headed east.
