Black Sphere observed flying low over town in broad daylight

I witnessed a UFO flying low over Siler City, NC at noon today,.Sat May 3, 2008. (Report written at 3:18 pm) The sighting lasted almost 5 minutes. The UFO was a solid BLACK Sphere about the size of a small car, flying about 40 feet above the tree and building line, heading northeast across the shopping areas, as if it travelled up Raleigh St. I only noticed it because I was waiting for my husband to finish shopping at the car parts store. I was sitting in the van watching traffic go by and it appeared almost infront of me above the trees, I got a really good look at it. I watched it slowly go along, it avoided the cell phone tower by darting around it but then maintained its course and altitude. Once it was over the Hwy 421 it went straight up into a cloud at about a 90 degree angle. I watched it for a pretty long time. When it was infront of me it was OBVIOUSLY a sphere and radiated an outer circle of energy that was bright, and pulsing energy. Quite a distinct contrast of the black sphere against the bright white of a cloud as it passed by.

I ruled out birds, I ruled out a balloon (It avoided the cell tower and maintained an altitude) It was truly unusual
