hot air balloon? cyst?

Looks like one of those things that if someone tells you what it is then they'll have to kill you.
It's that or...not going to say. :0)
looks like a giant hot tub :)))
Looks like you found an example of breast works....
It's a PUSH-PIN
Water tower? Whatever it is, it's not far from where Rush lives.
IMO: Photo artifact - it is not part of the landscape or even something in the sky above it.
Artifact or blemish on the lens.
Riviera Beach, Lake Mangonia I believe. Rush is 33480
Balloon would be clear. I've found aircraft in flight perfectly clear.
A hot air balloon might have sufficient heat convection to appear as blurred. Not saying that is definitely what it is, but might be possible.
Image will not load.
Try again. It still worked for me after I cleared my cache.
That was my first though, but there most likely would not be one right in the middle of houses with them that close. Judjing by the size of the average house and the street size that would have to be about a 2 million gallon elevated storage tank and the outer support legs for one that size would mean that the legs are in peoples yards.
So I'm gonna have to go with a "weather ballon" from New Mexico cirra mid-1940's if Ya know what I mean.
If you go up 6 clicks and right 4 clicks with the zoom at max you will see a white water tower casting a shadow.
I'm thinking the object in question is probly a fleck of space dust on the lens.

Ted Kennedy's @ss.
Was it a contrail?
Someone shot a golfball at the satellite
There is a blimp in flight crystal clear just off the Ocean side of Caledesi Island, FL.
Honey. Is that you?
You can find a plane in mid-flight just west of Wichita, KS
Check out the White Sands National preserve in NM. If you zoom in all the way on some of the purest sands it's quite an image.
Here's the blimp & White Sands. I can't seem to find your Wichita plane (I can see the airport of course), can you cut a link to it?
thanks again, DL, who linked here from a later similar thread:

IMHO, a high altitude detonation of one of Louis Frank's small watery comets.

I suspected a blemish as well. I panned westward 19 times (close in zoom) and found the same image in a swampy area.... perhaps there are multiples for every still photo taken....
