the idea that it is a weather balloon is suspect in my opinion. Hot air balloonists rely on the wind being in different directions at different altitudes. As I understand it they navigate by changing height to find a wind direction they need to go in the required direction. I think it highly unlikely that there is ever a time when there is no wind up there.
Thats why I doubt it was a weather balloon - in spite of the way it looks.
