It was approximately 7:00 pm and I was in the parking lot of a shopping mall when I saw several people looking at something in the sky. I looked up and I saw a large stationary, shining object in the sky. The moon was up and it appeared that the object was half of its size. I watched it for about 10 minutes and the object never moved. Someone in the crowd said that they thought it was a weather balloon but were not sure. I took a couple of pictures on my cell phone but the pictures weren't very good. I went into the store and when I came back out it was gone.
