Loud hot air balloon noise heard in the dark of night.

I heard a extremely loud sound coming from the NW direction of my house. The sound traveled SE in a matter of minutes and was not heard of again. The noise sounded like a hot air balloon. I am familiar with hot air ballons because I have traveled in them several times. The sound was as loud as if I was traveling inside the basket.

I ran outside to catch a glimpse of what could be making that noise, but all that was witnessed was a form of a fast moving dark shadow traveling almost invisibly through the faint light in the dark sky. It looked as if the UFO had adapted to its surroundings and became a cloud in the night sky. The only obvious sign that it was not a cloud was the speed of the object traveling farther away, which could not possibly be the cloud that I could see with my naked eyes.

I have had no prior experience with UFO's and would say I am a non-believer. Until, this!
