Dulles Airport 2006 Sighting

Back in 2005-2006, I was a baggage handler for first Independence Air, then a company called Delta Global Services, a subsidiary of Delta as a baggage handling service for hire...basically.

I'm guessing it was in August or so, I don't remember, would have been 2006. I remember it was warm and sunny. It was a very clear day. I believe it was around 11:00 am, I was working out in the small regional jet A-gates. I had a free moment between loading planes and I looked around in the sky. Directly above me, I saw a silver circle just sitting there. It was very high in altitude. If I wasn't at an international airport at a peak travel time of day, I would have written it off as a weather balloon. But I suspect not only do they have better tech near an airport for weather, but a weather balloon near an international airport sounds dangerous for air traffic.

I remember telling one other person near me to look at it. I don't remember who it was but they didn't seem as interested in it. I had a job to do so I couldn't stare at it all day. But I remember looking back at it over the next 10-15 minutes and it was still there. I believe I did try and take a picture with my Samsung flip phone at the time, but between the object's size, distance, and my camera quality, not much came out.
