A Mylar Batman balloon, or similar, is still a possibility. My first thought was a child’s birthday balloon released from a Disney Cruise ship. However, Disney and other cruise lines have banned balloons from sailing for environmental reasons. Another prospect is that a Mylar balloon could have departed anywhere along the Eastern Seaboard. The prevailing winds blow from west to east, thus offshore above the Atlantic Ocean.
”Helium balloons rise because helium is lighter than air. And according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS), helium-filled Mylar® balloons can rise as high as five miles above the earth. That’s more than 26,000 feet…
A Mylar® balloon can stay inflated for up to two weeks. Moving at just three miles-per-hour, a helium-filled Mylar® balloon can travel more than 1,000 miles before it returns to Earth. That means a balloon released in St. Louis could realistically reach the Atlantic Ocean before descending.”

Significantly more probable than Mork.
