Slow moving object with airplanes nearby.

I was out bird watching for Cardinals and airplanes are a common occurrence including being nearby our local airport. Since no Cardinals have been coming around for a while and taking pictures of them are challenging at best, I looked up to see what kind of airplane was passing by. I noticed a plane going by and listening to the roar of its engine.

I also noticed a very slow moving object that had to be 100 above treetop level. I had a very good look at this object which appeared to be oval shaped, white on the bottom and mid-tone to dark gray on the top. The object also appeared to "tilt" like a plane would as it turns but then the object tilted back to its original position.

I immediately got my camera out which I always carry with me and took 2 pictures of this thing. I then switched over to video and took 1:10 video of it. At the end I tried zooming in and also tried getting on the other side of the tree to recapture the object but I was not fast enough. I reviewed the video later and found out it is out of focus after zooming in. The pictures I took are crisp and clear.

In the video and pictures you can clearly see airplanes near the object but also not aware of it being near them.
