Flying humanoid in houston?

My roommate and I were sitting outside on our patio last night, around 7PM, when I looked up and noticed this pure black object just gliding across the sky...I watched it for at least 2 minutes, thinking it was just a bird, before asking my roommate if they were seeing what I was seeing. We both watched as this black thing just hovered across the sky at the same speed for at least 5 minutes before the object started rising very slowly. We knew it wasn't a bird because nothing on it wings or anything. We watched this thing for at least 15 minutes before it went so high in the sky that it just disappeared. There were other airplanes flying around it so it could of just been some sort of illusion but my roommate, who is a former marine, was definitely kinda freaked out because it just seemed so odd.
