Black mass floating and traveling SouthEast in Belmont NC

As my wife and I were walking our dog a black mass (thought it was a bird at first) caught my attention south west of downtown Belmont. The mass seemed to appear out of nowhere and hovered for a moment but then proceeded to travel in a southeast direction making no noise.

At first, I thought this may have been a bird but there was no flapping of wings as it progressed further in its travel. Unsure of what this thing was other than unidentified.
