Who knows where it will end?

I live to the North of the town centre at Bury and looking out of the lounge window one morning I saw and heard a very odd something that was heading towards me. It was like a large round balloon with a kind of tail and was making a noise like a rather noisy lawn mower
Very intrigued by your noisy balloony thing and the idea that it was emanating a "you ain't seen me" vibe. As always, when I read accounts of weird things, I want to fill in the mental image. So may I ask you a few questions?
You saw it out of the lounge window, but what was the outside environment? Was it a suburban street? Was anyone else around at the time, either inside or outside your house?
You say it looked like a large balloon. Roughly how large, would you estimate? Was it round or oval? And where was the tail positioned? Was it hanging down, like the string of a balloon would? Was the tail just dangling limply, or was it moving around in anyway?
The thing was moving towards you, but how was it moving? Smoothly? Erratically? Was it bouncing like a balloon? Was it off the ground all the time you saw it? Did it touch the ground? Was is heading directly towards you, or did its path meander at all?
Finally, and perhaps most intriguingly, how long was it visible to you? What happened to it? Did you get bored watching it? Did it vanish? Or move off in another direction? Did you feel that you wanted to go out and look for it? Did you ask other people if they heard or saw anything? How definite was the feeling that you ought not to be taking notice of it? Did you get left with a feeling of "oh well. How odd. Never mind. It was just one of those things" afterwards?
Sorry for the interrogation - and this isn't the first time I've said those words to posters on here!! - but your account of this incident really intrigues me!
