Large oval object hovering over major Texas city

I was sitting at my desk talking on the phone, and I looked up out the window. I saw a grayish oval object hovering above the trees. I watched it go down behind the tree line and then rise again several times. I took pictures of it with my cell phone, but the object was too far away. I tried to enlarge them, but the object is just blurred out. I am in a 3 story building and the object was about the same height, maybe a bit higher. I could also swear that it seemed to be changing shape. Started out pretty big, appeared to decrease in size, flatten out, and even looked to change into a diamond shape sort of. If I had to guess, I would say it was about 20 miles away. I am at work, so I had to do an xray. When I came back it was gone and has not returned since. I had one of my skeptical work mates look at it, and all she could say was that it had to be tethered to something. It was raining here this morning with a slight breeze. If it was a balloon, it was pretty big and grayish, not your typical bright balloon that you would associate with a promotion of some sort. I really don't know what this was, but I felt compelled to report it. Thank You
