Amorphous black object hovering over Phoenix for 1.5 hours

I was looking out my window to the west and slightly north at approximately 5:00 p.m. on Oct. 6, 2006 when I noticed a black blip hovering around the clouds. What caught my eye was that it seemed to hover, then dive, then bounce back upand make quick, abrupt changes in direction. The object stayed in the same general air space for approximately 1.5 hours. I attempted to take some photographs, but could not zoom in enough to get a clear shot. We tried to get a video camera from neighbors but could only find a pair of binouculars. When we viewed the object through the binoculars, it appeared to be dark in color and somewhat amorphous in shape. At times, depending on the angle, it looked like a black blob with a tail, like a tadpole. Later, it appeared to look almost like the silouette of a bat, like something you would see at Halloween. It also appeared to have something smaller trailing it. I am not sure, but they may have been connected. My neighbors and I watched the object until the sun went down, at which time we could no longer see it.
