Further Description of Sighting: Driving to work went around the corner past the Eagle to I-84 on ramp. something caught my eye to the left above the foothills.

Thought at first it was a hot air balloon, however, they are usually brightly colored and this was solid black. They (balloons) usually fly in groups and this was a solitary object.

Balloons will have a teardrop shape with a basket under and this was round with no basket. the object was showing a shiny arc of reflection on the side facing the sun.

It gradually lowered and moved in front of the foothills. As I was driving some trees next to the freeway blocked my view. When I passed them the object was no longer visible.

I work next to Gowen Field so see all types of military and civilian aircraft and helicopters. No resemblance to any of those. I thought about the balloons that car dealerships and stores float, but, have never seen a black one and usually they are smaller and you can see the string, cable or whatever is tethering it.

Just thought this was interesting as I have never seen anything like it. My son may have posted a duplicate report for me.
