Great shot of the balloon. That darn thing highlighted just how silly and sensationalist so many folks these days really are. Facebook is abuzz with theories that it was everything from an alien spacecraft to a top secret chemical spraying device sent up to poison us all into submission. No-actually kids, it's just a really innocuous balloon made of transparent mylar hovering at 102,000 feet altitude. Pretty boring stuff, unless of course you find hard science exciting. Thanks for posting this!
