HI Brian,

Anyway, when I saw the post by the retired USAF serviceman describing a black balloon-like orb, it brought to mind a similar sighting I had here in Alexandria a little over a month ago.

It was about 6:45 p.m. and overcast on a day in late June. I had driven to the post office and was cutting through a parking lot by a hobby shop called Fads and Frames. I was busy tuning in the "Glenn Beck Program" when I happened to look up and saw this black balloon, or what appeared to be a black balloon. What struck me as odd was that this "balloon" would slowly move around but never seemed to rise higher in the air. Then it would move up higher. There was no visible string or tether. Then it began moving further away. I remained in the car listening to the radio and watching this thing and wondering if it was a spy balloon or something. I did take a picture (which I have not developed). At one point I looked away and it was gone. It was very eerie. It didn't act like a normal wayward balloon caught on an evening breeze (there was a slight breeze as I recall). In fact, about a week ago I was driving past the same area where I saw this and commented to my friend about the object. My friend didn't seem interested in pursuing it further.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
