Extremely bright object moving very slowly at a extremely high altitude

I was on break at work outside and I looked up and noticed a very bright object extremely high in the air. My initial thought was it was a satellite. After a few minutes of studying the object I realized it was not a satellite or it would of passed already. The object did not go in a straight line either. A gathering appeared and one theory is it was a weather ballon, I am hoping your sight would be able to confirm if a weather ballon was in the area. The reason I do not think it was a weather ballon is it changed directions. Due to the height of the object it was to hard to give an exact description.
