I noticed a bright dot in the sky just after sunset. It was not along the ecliptic, so I knew it wasn't a planet. It was in an area where no bright stars should be, and more than that it was moving very slowly. I got out my telescope and camera, and took this image. It was my first and only time seeing a high altitude balloon in person.
