There are several types of powered, unmanned lighter than air craft that are used by the government and private groups. Some are nonrigid dirigibles
shaped like spheres or balls... and, if seen at night, they would look like a spherical UFO. But, most importantly, these craft are often equipped
with small, electric motors that are used to keep them 'on station' for long stretches of time, with slight deviations caused by gusts of wind.
So... Do you live near a border or any area that has been under ecological study. Many of these drone blimps are designed to monitor the border
crossings of illegal aliens.
...That being said, you should report your sighting to some group like NUFORC, NICAP, MUFON, or NIDSCI. My guess is, because it was just a Nocturnal
light, that they may not come out to investigate... but, still, you never know...
