Unknown disc-shaped object discovered within frame of photograph.

On 05/31/2015, I was hiking in the Groom Creek area of Northern Arizona with two of my friends. We had reached the Groom Creek fire lookout and had stopped for lunch. While there, I was taking photographs with my Nikon Coolpix AW100 camera.

Once I got home, I downloaded my efforts and discovered an unknown object in the upper right hand corner of one of the images. I was unaware of this object at the time I took the photograph. The orientation of the photograph is due north. There was no recognizable sound associated with this object. It could simply be a weather balloon or a mylar-type party balloon, although its configuration leads me to think otherwise. There is no accurate way for me to determine the distance I was from this object and therefore no way to determine its true size.
