aircraft hazard

Although the object appeared to be round, it may have been a little oval. I saw this object, which I believe to be a weather balloon, or an advertising balloon, appear to be climbing, and went almost due south. My wife obsevered this ufo too. I just hope if it is an advertising balloon, that the wire that keeps it on the ground snapped off at the right end, otherwise it is a danger to any aircraft.
