6/20/16: Another sighting of a similar UFO that is clearly not a balloon has been reported in Midland
3:40 PM Update: Mystery still unsolved... When I asked the witness what reason she had to believe this was a UFO and not a balloon, she replied that she considered that possibility (or that it could be a garbage bag), however while her "hand was shaky in the video... [the UFO] was gliding through the sky in a straight line. Probably a few thousand feet in the sky."
The witness also described how the UFO appeared to split into two, vanished without a trace, and how the winds eerily died down during the UFO sighting.

A dark gray or black object is seen wandering around a daytime sky in a video that was submitted to TexasUFOs. The witness said that in person, the UFO looked to change shapes:
I had just parked my car and was closing my sunroof, but I stopped because I saw a black circle floating through the sky. I put my regular glasses on (since I had my sunglasses on) and tried to look closer. The video was taken with my sunroof open. I also snapped a picture though it's blurry. I wanted to take more video, I got out of my car and followed it with my eyes for a second. The shape was changing a little bit, it looked like it was splitting in to two, and re-forming, in respective order. It disappeared for a moment since a tree was in my line of sight, so I walked around the tree to watch it and it disappeared completely. I had a pretty good 360 view of the sky, it was so high up that it couldn't have gotten in a tree. It was traveling North. I didn't hear, smell or sense anything. It was quiet. There was another person outside but he didn't see the object. I wonder if anyone else did.
Could this just be a balloon?
While that is possible, it's worth it to note that other strange black "dots" or discs like these, which can not be so easily explained as balloons, have been spotted in Texas recently - a saucer-shaped object flew over Austin on June 16th, a very small gray object was filmed hovering and moving over El Paso weeks before that, and more memorably, a security guard saw flying saucer hover over a mall in Houston last month. Could these sightings be related?
