I was outside on the phone with mom. I looked off to the east towards Gadsden at the mountain that has antennas at the top. I saw a black orb like thing floating up towards the south. I thought it was a ballon but it was too big for as far away as it was. As it flew it went from the orb shape to a flat shape. It was slower then a plane but was fast like a helicopter searching for something. It began to hover over something in a south east direction. After a few minutes it cut back towards the north about half way from where it originated. It hovered there for a few minutes then began to go into the cloud cover as there is a storm blowing through. It took about 5-10 minutes for it to completely disappear. The whole time it didn't shrink. It flew in straight and diagonal lines and seemed curious. I wouldn't say the flight path was precise but it wasn't an accident. It seemed to flow. And it almost appeared as it was spinning. Not in a clockwise pattern but end over end because of how it flattened as it flew.
