object floating over minneapolis area August 19, 2004

this is concerning the object seen floating high above the MSP area on August 19, 2004. I observed this through my 8 inch telescope at low and high power and can positivily identify it as some sort of large balloon. It had a long tether hanging from it and was white and transparent. This was definitly man-made. What is odd is that no official organazation seems to claim responsibility. I would guess it got loose from somewhere in the western U.S.
