Evening TV In Albuquerque said it is a scientific research balloon launched from 
Ft. Sumner, NM.  Big sucker.  I think they said it was 400' diameter, capable of 
a multi-ton payload.  It was at 125,000' around 22:00 MDT last night (Thursday), 
near the AZ-NM border, still in sunlight.  I was not listening as closely as I 
should have.  I might have some details wrong.  Apparently it generated a number 
of UFO sightings.
