This object almost seemed alive

I can best describe this "thing" as a spinning comma . It looked like a small balloon that had been popped and was falling out of the sky , only spinning counter- clockwise and moving right to left, tumbling ,sort of .Just like a comma,a black disc with a short tail, 2 ft. across. It came floating by and I saw it ,not losing altitude,travel approx. 1/2 mile strait into an approaching thunder storm cloud. For three or four minutes,I watched as it darted in and out of this cloud very fast in fifty foot circles as lightning came down out of the cloud. This occurred approx. 2 mi. north of Orlando Interntl. airport. This event occurred in early afternoon with clear skies as a storm approached. At the time I worked for ((deleted)) Corp., as a ((deleted)) operator, manufacturing ((deleted)) parts. ---------Thanks
