|Strange Very Slow Moving Red/White V Shape Vertical Triangle Balloon Spheres
I and a Friend were reroofing my house on a rather hot mid-summer day and as we were taking a break I happened to look up facing east and I saw this object which had just passed our zenith a few seconds before, It was traveling rather slowly also due east.
The only way I can discribe this object was that it was made up of 10 spheres all grouped together in a triangle shape 4 at the top then 3 then 2 and one at the very bottom with a trailing cable off of the bottom sphere and a small white box at the very end of the trailing cable. The spheres were all half white and red in color, and I then climbed down asap and grabbed my 70mm binoculars from my room as my friend tracked it.
We both took turns looking at this object up close as it slowly gained altitude and slowly went out of sight due to haze and it's distance.
Now I know that this object to me sounds like maybe it could have been a civilian or military weather balloon and radiosond but there are no military bases near my local and the nearest weather radar station is 25 miles away to the north. It's altitude was only between 700-1000 feet as it passed very slowly above my home.
