Sighting Details

My wife and I were approximately a quarter mile from the Brown's Ranch Trailhead ( On Alma School PKWY.) hiking on Upper Ranch Trail when I looked up to catch a glimpse of a nearby hawk overhead. While trying to observe the hawk I noticed a small strange looking object very stationary in the sky almost directly overhead. I grabbed my 10x binoculars to get a better look. The object appeared circular with a red colored bottom and a somewhat silver-gray border around it's edge. I would estimate that it was about 15,000 feet up but it was hard to say for certain. We observed the object for about 15 minutes during which time it showed absolutely no movement. We thought possibly a weather balloon but didn't think a balloon could stay that stationary or possibly some type of drone. We continued our hike for about another 10 minutes and the object remained in position. By the time we got to the parking lot (another 15 minutes or so) we could no longer locate the object. There was a civilian type helicopter that had been making repeated flights back and forth over the area about and hour before the sighting.
