Sighting Details

On July 25th,I was driving my car on the NJ Turnpike traveling northbound at approximately 3:30pm. I entered the NJ turnpike on exit 4 and had been driving northbound for approximately 10-30 minutes when I saw a ball/oval shaped object traveling at a high rate of speed directly in front of me in the distance. It ascended very rapidly and made a slight turn which caught my attention, then it traveled directly towards me. As I traveled northbound it traveled southbound directly over the NJ turnpike. Off in the distance was a small airplane carrying one of those big beach advertisments. The object was between me and the plane in the distance ( I remember the plane being yellowish or light in color). I would think the plane would have been able to see the object too as it looks like the object originated very close to where the plane was. I did not see any wings on the object, when I saw it I was a bit surprised and didnt know what it was, I estimate it as about the size of a helicopter although it was a ball shape it had no tail like a helicopter would. I turned my radio down and opened my window as the object quickly approached but I heard no noise as I typically would if it were a helicopter. The whole event from the moment I saw the object until it passed over me was probably no more then 8 seconds, it was very quick. I am the son of a retired pilot. Cars, motorcycle, helicopters, planes, hot-air balloons all interest me and I am familair with many common shapes and sounds they all make and I can say with confidence I have never seen anything like this. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps it was a large unmanned drone? But I saw no markings on it as well as no way it could fly such as wings or helicopter style blades.
