Twirling oval black "thing" dissapeared beneath the tree tops

I'm not exactly sure what I saw but I saw something that my mind can't make sense out of.

I was driving south on 41 around a long turn. About a quarter mile into the forest I noticed a large, oval-shaped dark object slowly "flipping" and descending. I thought it was some sort of weather balloon being dragged down by some very thin ropes.

It was oval shaped and twirled like a clock. It was very dark. I couldn't really make out what it was at all, despite its size. I watched it for about 10 seconds as it slowly hid out of sight beneath the tree tops. I was in a hurry to get somewhere but it really caught my attention. But the more I think about this the less sense it makes.

This is a very small and predictable town. Perhaps it was nothing extraordinary. I really don't know what to make out of it.
