a balloon/fish shaped object hovering above the mountains

my wife and i were driving from tombstone arizona to the saguaro national park , when i spotted a barrage balloon/whale shaped object hovering above the mountains. we stopped the car and i taped the thing on my camcorder. it made no sound and didnt move. since retuning home to england i have had the chance to transfer the footage to my laptop . ther seems to be something spinning on the underside of the object. it was a sunny day and the few clouds the were around the mountains were all reflecting light. there was no light reflected from the object.

((NUFORC Note: There are helium-filled balloons in Arizona, which are used by the INS and Customs for detecting low-level aircraft and foot traffic. That may be what the witness observed. PD))
