great find!

Actually it is a Tethered Aerostat. Like a blimp but unmanned and tethered to the ground. You can see the base of the tether just to the west of the balloon.

We have a whole category of these:

Does anyone else think that runway near the tether to the west looks a bit small. Like maybe a UAV runway?
