coming on to I-20 going toward dallas, i saw what looked like a black ball suspended over the shopping mall complex to my left.

i was turning onto the highway, going toward dallas, when i looked to my left and noticed what looked like a black ball or sphere suspended in the sky, over the shopping mall complex. i thought it was just a street light or something at first, but took a second look at it, and noticed that it was a little higher than the lights. it wasn't an advertisement balloon or blimp, because i kept my eye on it to see if i could read anything or see strings. no strings, no poles; nothing. it was just a huge black ball suspended in the air, and it was creepy because it was just as still as all the buildings and other structures around the area. it didn't sway in the wind, have a velocity, or emit any smoke trails. as far as depth perception goes, it looked to me, to be about the size of a small automobile, like a VW beetle, or maybe bigger. i've gone down that same stretch, since then, to double check that i wasn't just seeing street lamps, or if i could see it again. no weird street lamps and no spooky black balls in the sky. i'd sure as hell like to know what it was that i saw.
