Black, shaped like a clover, slowly rotating, surrounded by what looked like heat waves.

I was standing out by my pool and looking out over the city towards the ocean. I live some what on a hill. In the distance I noticed a black object coming in my direction, I continued watching the object for a while. At first I thought it was a helicopter, but I did not hear any noise. I continued to watch the object and it appeared to be shaped some what like a three leaf clover, as I was watching it, the object appeared to rotate a quarter of a turn every once in a while it also appeared to have some type of visual disturbance around it, like heat waves or a mirage. I continued to watch it and it started to accend, as it was accending it did not appear like the three leaf clover shape, but rather just a round object. it continued to rise into the sky until I could not percieve it any longer.
