January 2011. Standing outside. As luck would have it, had my digital camera with me. (Taking pictures of my cat on the driveway.)
Odd object cruises overhead. Looks something like a balloon, but it has lobes and it changes course against the wind. It morphs as it flies by.
I believe it was a space probe of some sort. After hours of tweaking the images with photo editing software, it became obvious that it wasn’t a balloon. It can’t be seen here, but the object has three lobes of different colors and a dome-like structure at its center. It continued on its way in no particular hurry until it was out of sight.
