It looks like a balloon.

The object is moving steadily up and away.
It doesn't look perfectly spherical to me.
It moves beside the tower (relative to the wind). No reason for it to encounter turbulence unless it was immediately downwind of the tower. Even then the spidery structure probably would not create much disturbance.
I disagree, it looks more to me like a giant full stop or maybe the dot from an exclamation mark.
It probably escaped from the end of a sentence on a billboard or something.

Science dear boy, if it was helium then it would be rising constantly. It moves in a linear sideways direction with almost stable velocity, that doesnt fit with wind. It then rises upwards with very little sidewards movement, again at a pretty constant velocity, that doesnt fit with wind.
Whatever it is would appear to be something controlled more than blown, a remote control something or, well, I guess something else, could be some kind of kite although I dont see any strings and the movements are a little odd for a kite, however kites are very popualr here in aregtnina and they come in ALL shapes and ALL sizes, some of them are pretty impressive things really.
