Pulsating sphere hovers and then disappears

I was outdoors watching the clouds during a breezy day. While looking up, I noticed a black spot high in the sky. I assumed it was a balloon, but when I realized it was sitting stationary while the clouds were moving past it, I reached over for my binoculars. Through the binoculars, the object appeared as a shiny silver metallic sphere that seemed to "pulsate". It began to move against the wind current, pulsated for a few moments while it hovered in the same spot, and then suddenly disappeared. I've never seen a balloon pulsate and hover, so I figured I'd report this event.
