Large Dark object hovering over forest area behind a subdivision, disappeared when I got close to it.

I was driving into my neighborhood after picking up my daughter from school. I saw something flying behind our subdivision over a forest area. I got my phone out and started recording it. It was moving very slowly and at first I thought maybe it was a drone. It was way to large to be a drone though. As I got closer to it, I turned off my video to turn it to camera to take a pic and I looked back up and it was gone. I drove home to grab something at my house and as I am pulling out my driveway I see it again, just slowly moving and hovering over the forest again. As I got closer I tried to get my camera view on again and it disappeared again. That was it, but I did get a view of it on video. My phone would not work for a little bit either. I couldn’t call anyone or upload the video at first.
