Small Ascending Object Sighted in Mid-Morning Hours in Downtown Seattle, WA

I sighted this object from the 7th floor of our building (see address below). This object was difficult to identify because it was either very small or far away. The object gradually ascended and disappeared in the clouds. The object appeared to be moving from the Southeast towards the Northwest. It had the shape of a kite, but I thought it unusual to be flying kites in this area because our office is located in one of the main approaches to Sea-Tac airport. I do not think the object was a balloon although it did gradually ascend in a smooth motion. I first sighted the object at a declination of 60 degrees and lost it about 80 degrees.

Address where sighting occurred: 1200 6th Avenue, Seattle, WA Latitude: 47.61146 Degrees North Longitude: 122.33368 Degrees West Weather: partly cloudy with a ceiling of around 5,000 feet.
