White shperical object seen near New York City

It was approximately 2 PM eastern time. I was out in my backyard and I happened to look up. Relatively far away, I saw a white object. I dismissed it as a plane, but suddenly realized it was circular. It was moving slowly, and crossed the sky a little bit. It appeared to move down but then went upward. Then it disappeared up.

I live near LaGuardia Airport, and have for a long time. I can tell the difference between a plane and anything else. At the angle in which the object rose, it was opposite the airports, also including JFK. It rose too sharply to be a plane.

I am unsure if the object was a UFO or a balloon. Right after I saw it, I went to my computer. I checked to see where balloons pop. It said they pop at 30,000 feet. was my reference website. That seemed too low for where my object was flying. The object also seemed far away, so far that I don’t think I’d be able to it if it was a balloon, due to its sizing.
