Very bright light in north eastern sky. Larger then stars and smaller then moon. Grabbed pair of binoculars and verified it to be a rather large weather ballon. Ballon has very long tail dropping from center. Ballon also appears to be metallic in reflecting sunsets rays. Object is very bright and a few resident here in our subdivision (Boulder Mountain) all have stopped and noticed. Object appears to be floating west bound.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a star. PD))
