black diamond shaped ufo seen over hovering about 300-400 feet over city.

It was 9:30 and it was a crystal clear blue sky, sunny day. I was walking by the window at work and i casually noticed a black crow flying by and it caught my eye, so i looked at the bird and after it had passed the window i noticed a black diamond shaped object off in the distance. The object also caught my eye because it wasn't moving, instead it just sat there. It was then that I took the time to go outside in the parking lot for a better look. Immediately I noticed that it was not moving up or down or left to right. It was however, rotating in place slowly. I was trying to make sense that maybe this was a kite, but there was no wind and it was clearly rotating. Plus, the area at which it was hovering over was all industry and a very busy intersection, so no kid would be flying their kite in that area. Then, i decided to get a few employees to come look at it to see if they would have an answer. They were just as stunned as me. I even got a customer to co! me look at it and they too were stunned. As I focused more and more on its detail, I noticed it had a haze around it and the surface reflected light because when an area of the object rotated into the light, it reflected it, looking smooth and metallic. There may have been a light on one tip of the "diamond' but I couldn't be for sure. Eventually it started to drift to my left and up slowly, and it got to about 600 ft or more, and by this time I knew it couldnt have been a kite because it crossed over the busy street it was hovering over and drifted like 1 block left. no kite string could be that long. This area is a very busy place and other people had to have seen this that morning.
