Duration: 4 minutes +
Tumbling balloon-like object, very large and high, square angles, white.

Walking with my toddler, he spotted something in the sky and pointed, saying "Star". (He knows Stars are in the sky, although it was daytime.) That day there were clear blue skies - a minimum of haze. We were walking in the vicinity of Marymoor park.

If he hadn't pointed it out to me, I would have never seen it. At first I thought it was a normal child's white balloon. When I focused on it, it seemed much larger and higher than a normal balloon, and was shaped along rectangular forms, something like a blocky chair.

It seemed to be tumbling quite freely, and lazily, like something in freefall. This "naturalistic" motion was what caused me to first think of it as a balloon; along with everday expectation. But the tumbling didn't seem to "fit" with it being a balloon.

The size, tumbling, and shape all struck me as odd. The tumbling is what stuck in my mind.

I lost sight of it after a few minutes.
