UFO over Randolph Air Force Base

I was working on the south aircraft ramp on Randolph AFB at approx. 00:30 after the 4th of July celebration when something caught my eye. I was in a truck and another guy was loading sand bags onto the back. I looked up and saw an object moving through the base of the clouds from southwest to the northeast at a very slow speed, about 1000 yards from me. At first I thought it was a lower cloud drifting along in the wind, then I thought it might be lights from an airplane reflecting in the clouds. But the more I looked at it the more detail I started to see. It was a saucer shape and appeared to be a dull grey color. It reflected the flightline light barely. It did not have any lights or windows or anything, just a smooth surface. I was looking at the side of the object since it was flying only about 100 ft over the tops of the trees. It was about as wide as a bus is long. It moved very slow with no noise to the northeast and then just dissapeared in the clouds over the East Runway. After the guy who was loading sandbags was done he asked me what I was looking at and I said I think I saw a UFO. There was about 75 people out cleaning up at this time. I didnt ask anyone if they had seen it as well.
