We can dismiss satellites altogether. This object is in the atmosphere.
High altitude weather balloons have a large payload attached and would be slower. This object doesn't have anything attached to it and is under it's own power. And none are launched anywhere near this area. There's too much commuter air traffic.
Consumer helium balloons typically don't exceed 5,000 feet at best. Including large cluster types.
And our winds come from the NW. This object is heading directly into the NW headwinds, eliminating all balloons.
We can dismiss a bird also. Characteristics don't match and a large bird farther than a couple of miles is a small dark, blurry streak until they can't be detectable at all.

I tend to think the object has a similar/identical shape to the one discussed in the link provided in my signature. It seems to be the same, the only difference being mine was static and i did not have a telescope...
I wonder where these observations will lead us!

Fantastic video. It's hard to tell if the object is being viewed from the side, top, or bottom. It looks to me like a bottom top view... Anyone else think so?

Could be a satelite. I like that one, either that or a possible alien spacecraft.
