Object viewed over I-40 during daylight

A friend and I were travelling on I-40 West during broad daylight. We both noticed in the distance a small black oval moving erratically over the highway. We had the same reaction 'What is that?'. It seemed to sway back and forth across the interstate. As we continued travelling, it was briefly blocked by overhead road signs. When it came back into view, it was slightly larger and still black in color. Within about 30 seconds, it seemed to make a quick 90 degree turn towards the North and appeared much larger in shape... it was very bright as if was metallic and the sun was reflecting from it. As soon as it made it's turn, it very rapidly 'swooshed' downwards and flew off towards the North at a very fast pace. It moved so quickly, we lost sight of it as it flew behind the treeline.
