Tom SeathMotion track object on a black background?

Hi there,

The title says it. I'm wanting to motion track a solid (which I will add a particle plugin to) to an object that is moving back and forth on a black background.
I have tried tracking the entire scene, making a camera and putting the solid on top of the camera but the solid just randomly moves around the screen. This is probably due to there being no points on the background to track. Can this even be done in the After Effects motion tracker?

Any help would be appreciated. I am running AE CC 2014.
