pictures of solar ballons.
As the raw footage is probably being looked at and analysed as I type
this, it may be best to wait for the opinions of the experts.
Just my 2 cent,

THe latest clip looks like a slightly out of focus bent rod tumbling in 3 degrees of freedom, with a fast axial rotation and slower rotation in the perpendicular plane.

Well, at least it's pretty safe to say that is not a solar balloon in SO's video clip. That thing looks like something I would not want to touch if it was only a centimeter long...but here it, is a gigantic version of a maggot! Arrrgggghhhh!

Similar sighting, also over Los Angeles
Jumpmasters tape three lengths of clotheshanger wire to the end of a crepe-paper streamer and throw it from the plane over the drop zone. When it lands, the pilot flies over the wind indicator and begins counting seconds as the plane flies back toward the drop zone. When the plane arrives over the first jumper's desired impact point on the drop zone, the pilot begins counting again until the plane has flown the same number of seconds as the inbound trip.
The pilot uses the point then directly beneath the plane as a reference, and that's where the first jumper exits when the jump run begins.
