Round object above US 17 Charleston, SC.

Traveling high above US Hwy 17 moving towards downtown Charleston in the West Ashley area an object was spotted moving in northerly direction. The object was small and round, remained a constant height, had a whitish to silver tone but did not reflect light. Its movement was characterized by being rather fast while the clouds above and below it were stationary. It moved northerly while also erratically moving left and right along its flight path while pausing in one spot on several occaisions. My first inclination was a weather balloon but due to the stationary clouds above and below the object as well as the object's intermittent pauses in flight and seemingly random movements left and right I decided to file this report.
