Slow/upward moving dark, circular object observed approximately above Mt. Charleston in NW Las Vegas that disappears suddenly

I had just finished dinner with my husband and son, then sat outside, in the rear patio area of our he. It was somewhat unseasonably warm out and I was enjoying the upcoming sunset. I looked in a Northwestern direction- towards Mt. Charleston- when I saw a dark circular object in the sky. This object appeared to stay still in the sky for several minutes, when I called out for my family to come look. There appeared to be no illumination coming from the object, so that ruled out aircraft or even a meteor, as there was no trail of smoke behind it. My son saw the object and ran back inside to grab binoculars. At this point the object began to very slowly move upwards and farther away in the sky. Looking through the binoculars, my son and I saw a well lit aircraft that we presumed was an airplane (it was to the leftside of the object )and as soon as both objects were visible in the scope of the binoculars, the dark object suddenly disappeared. My husband did not have his glasses on and so he was unable to view this object.
