Two cylinder like objects

Mr. Davenport, I was simply playing with my Nikon 5.0 Mega pixel digital camera and caught two objects while I was inside my vehicle--taken through the front windshield of my vehicle while I was parked and facing east. These two objects are above the back of the red stop sign (in the picture I will send you). These objects are probably just balloons. Using Microsoft Photo Editor, images on my computer automatically come up at 25%--however, one cannot see these images at 25%. I then clicked enlargement up to 50% and saw two distinct objects above the back of the red stop sign. (I did not, nor could not see these objects at all when I took this picture yesterday).

Probably just balloons, but since this picture was taken at 4:53 pm, and it would be dark in one hour, why is the, "balloon," dark in the center? I played with the gamma correction, and noticed these, "balloons," were dark in the center and had a (white) structure at the top and bottom roughly in the form of a cylinder.

So if I am looking east, and the sun is setting behind me in the west, why are the balloons dark in the center? It was an overcast day, so maybe this explains it, but I don’t see how.

Maybe balloons simply look like this--I have never photographed balloons.

I will now attempt to send this picture. However, if it requires Microsoft Outlook, my computer is having major problems with this program, and I will not be able to send it this way. I can only send it through my yahoo address as an attachment.

If this photo is of any interest, please contact me before publishing.
