Reader Asks: What’s That Thing in the Sky?

Flying object/reader photo

A Reston Now reader looked up into the sky Sunday and saw a mysterious object floating above.

Since Reston Now knows of no such UFO invasion, training exercises or robots-in-the-sky news, we are asking other readers — any ideas?

Some ideas floating around Facebook: an odd-shaped drone and an escaped mylar birthday balloon (could be an errant robot or Disney character).

Did you see it? In any case, tell us your theories in the comments.
