White/Silver Object Over Huntington Beach, California

I saw this object over Westminster and Springdale streets in Huntington Beach, California. I was removing a wasp nest from the eve of my house with a stream of water from a garden hose. After I knocked it down and was spraying the wasps I looked up at the eve and saw this white/silver shimmering object staying stationary in the sky. As I watched it, I saw it moving slowly left and right. It did not seem to be affected by the wind. The wind was out of the west maybe 5 mph. at ground level. I went inside and grabbed my video camera. It is really hard to film these things. I got some of it on tape but I’m disappointed at my video. At least I managed to capture something. The white/silver thing moved back to the west, against the wind, hovering then moving again. I called my wife out to look at it and my kids saw it too. Unimpressed they went back into the house. I watched and tried to get it on film for over 15 minutes, and then it just vanished.

((NUFORC Note: Three photos forwarded by witness. We do not know what the object is, but our best guess is that it may be a cluster of helium-filled balloons. PD))
