Often cloud orbs take on the color of their surroundings. When near a cloud they are usually white, but sometimes are black. When near the ground, they will take on the surrounding colors. Often being several colors at once (translucent) like an opal (stone). I actually had a baseball size translucent one sneak up behind my camera on a roof of a 8 floor building. The little bugger shot off from 2 meters from me to 50 in 2 seconds of me flipping the camera around. They have a wicked sense of humor.

Looking out the kitchen window facing to the east, I noticed a dark object above the trees to the east in another backyard. I had just enough time to get my camera and caught several in focus images of a dark sphere or something round and dark. I was standing in the sliding glass doorway when I photographed the dark object before it moved behind a tree and I lost sight of the object.
