Large black “balloon” spotted over Baton Rouge, LA, USA

I saw a large black object in the sky while driving home from work. I tried to watch it as it hovered, trying to peer and see if it could’ve been a hot air balloon, so I took a picture zoomed in as much as I could so I could look at it when I got home. I didn’t see a basket below the object. I looked up weather balloons, and it didn’t look like that. It moved very slowly and was in the process of descending when I saw it. I was driving east on I-12 in Baton Rouge. I only saw one large roundish black object at 4:54 PM on 01/21/2020.
