Hi, jritzmann, you finally made it, thanks for your time.
So, do you think this could be one of those Solar balloons?

This is of course not a hoax by the shooter.
The object is, by all that I've spoken with, not a weather apparatus, nor advertising prop gone awry. It's distance from the camera, I cannot even surmise...it's beyond what can be calculated for me. Which in turn means it's friggin huge.
Whatever it is, it's definitely in the thermal winds. You can read about them here:
I say it's in thermal winds due to it's movement. It's truckin along pretty well, and does not seem to be in control of itself, it's blowing, twisting and bending like a large tube would. Thermal winds can carry fast and long.
The item is defintely tubular, and most likely is hollow. It is not a line of baloons, as there is a surface that appears smooth and consistent.
I do not believe it's anything akin to the tube shaped stuff out of Mexico. While it's wierd and to me unexplainable at this point, I dont think it's anything "alien", but could possibly be some sort of art prank or maybe even a military project we dont or cant know about.
As far as the military I dont expect any answer, although I'll be around some Air Force members today and I'll ask about it.

When you have time, I would like to hear that how did you estimate the size of the thing.
