Did anyone happen to see any jets that were scrambled around the area yesterday? if it in fact was there for that long and it wasn't claimed by any certain group or branch, wouldn't you think we'd wanna get some of our own aircrafts up there to take a look?

I wonder if there is any connection between this, and the X-Prize launch/testing of the Canadian Team da VINCI PROJECT rocket. It’s supposed to launch from a high altitude balloon that is to climb to an altitude of 80,000 feet, from somewhere in Saskatchewan (of course they could be doing testing anywhere north of you), which is about 200 miles away from St Paul. The symbol used by the team is a big V as seen in their logo, but even more interesting is the V on the rocket itself is a dark grey color.
They are planning on launching this thing on October the 2, Maybe you saw a test flight of the balloon being preformed, in Canadian airspace, but it appeared to be closer due to the size of the balloon and its altitude.
This would also explain the FAA's inability to explain what was going on, since it was not in their airspace.
Here is a link to the flight technical info page:

Can't be a weather balloon. They aren't flexible enough to do some of the movements shown in the videos. Also, the shape just did not correlate in my mind. Did the thing just suddenly disappear or what happened to it.
Edit. Another thing, i'm pretty sure their balloon isnt large enough to be seen 30-80k feet high, especially if you look at the picture posted you can see its not possible.

Its Phobos or Deimos.
They are in orbit around earth now after the asteroid threw them out of mars orbit.
