Object initially appeared dark and spherical, but quickly turned, revealing that it was dull gray and cigar-like

I was walking my dog and the encounter happened too quickly, so I was unfortunately unable to film this brief encounter.

I heard a few airplanes in the sky. I love to watch them fly, so I took a look and saw 2 airplanes SE and SW of my position. Between them, nearly dead-on South, I saw a dark, almost black orb hanging suspended in the sky, quite high up. It didn't even take a second before the object turned (I assume that is what happened), revealing that the object was in fact a dull gray color and shaped like a fat cigar. After turning, the object headed quickly in a SE direction and disappeared from sight due to a combination of trees and buildings. The entire encounter couldn't have lasted more than 4 seconds, if even that long.

The skies were almost perfectly clear, with most clouds being light, fluffy, and to the East and North. The object was between 40-50 degrees above the horizon.
