Black cone seen in broad daylight in Louisville, KY

I was coming back from lunch and saw a black object in the sky to my right. I watched it as I drove and then pulled off the road to get a better view and determine its speed, size, etc. It was cone-shaped, with the open part up, but very nearly an isosceles triangle from my vantage point. It had what appeared to be a thin rod projecting from the bottom point of the cone. At the end of the rod there appeared to be a shiny sphere.

I watched it as it floated in a stationary position. After about 3 minutes, a C130 took off from SDF, flew by the UFO, and then headed west. The UFO then almost immediatly headed east and increased its altitude. The craft appeared to move at about the speed of a helicopter, but remained perfectly vertical from what I could tell.

This craft was completely black except for the shiny sphere at the end of the rod. My theory is that its visual stealthing wasn't working properly. I did not take a photo because I was concerned about getting in trouble. My assumption at that point was that it was a US military stealth drone of some sort. Now I'm not so sure and wish I had a picture so that I would know that I didn't halucinate.
