Highly reflective object gliding across sky

12 October 2007 Nikon 10x25, 5º binoculars ~14:35, very blue skies, scattered clouds (cumulus ??) Clouds traveling in approximately the same directional path as object what I saw (w/ binoculars) Spherical object, traveling in a straight line passing directly overhead, 300º NW - 137º SE.

Traveled ~ 48 inches / 3-5 minutes. Highly reflective to unaided eye on sun side. Orangish color on ‘dark side’. Appeared to be below cloud level. Object did not appear to waver in it's flight path.

Iinteresting: thinking of what i saw as it came directly overhead, the best view, i could not recall.

What my son saw (with binoculars) ( 4-5 sec.) Looked like ‘super bowl trophy’ Sphere on top. Top have of sphere was red, bottom half white.

Sphere ‘sat’ on top of a ‘megaphone’ in a vertical position, wide portion on bottom. Gray.

Sphere and bottom were approximately equal in height.

Tumbling Object exhibited the characteristics of a balloon in flight, however a large one.
