    Reminds me of my first visit to Albuquerque, 21years ago. We stayed in a sleazy hotel on Central, and the nightly news showed a similar weather balloon which was prompting lots of calls to the authorities. If aliens ever actually observed us, they would do well to disguise themselves as one of these!
