First, go read the article about the Unidentified Floating Object. Then read on and post your ideas.

A bit of math tells me that, assuming that by "hundreds of pounds" they don't mean over a thousand, that thing is lighter than a solid chunk of aluminum and also light enough to float in water, so it's got to be hollow, perhaps with stuff inside.

Anybody care to make guesses as to what it is, though?

So *that's* what happened to my aluminum foil ball after it got too large!

Oooh! What does this button do!?

Woo... it's a Mana ball from Magic Carpet...

If I was them, I'd put that back before a sorcerer and his balloon come looking for it... unless you have some possession spells handy (even so, he'll only come and repossess it)
