My son and I were riding our bikes through our neighbor when he called out my name and drew my attention to an object in the sky. We then rode back to our house where I decided to take a couple of photographs. The object was a white or translucent spher reminiscent of a balloon. However it hovered in the same spot for a unusually long period of time. I also live near an airport so I would think it wouldve been a security risk if indeed it was a research balloon....
