Default 2000 Lesabre black box?

Just purchased a 2000 Lesabre Limited yesterday, pick it up thursday.
On the inside of the windshield beside the review mirror there is a black box stuck on the windshield. The wires go up into the headliner with the wires from the mirror.
Any ideas what this box is?
The car has moisture activated wipers, auto dim rear view mirror with compass, auto dim outside mirrors along with alot of other options.
Just currious about the black box.
Thanks

OnStar most likely. Do you have any buttons on the mirror?

Not OnStar then if it doesn't have the buttons. Might control the auto-dimming of the mirror.

Pretty sure that is the rain sensor for the wipers. Our Ultra had that, and we saw what looked like optics on the windshield side.

There'* also a small sensor on the back of the mirror, but not in a box or anything.
