Yesterday, a mysterious balloon was spotted flying over northern Japan with both the JMA and the Self-Defense Forces clueless. The object resembling a large spherical balloon was flying at an altitude of over 11,400 metres and had a cross-shaped construction hanging underneath.

There was no follow-up in the media today. A home-made high-altitude drone or a poor man's satellite from North Korea?

Looks like a weather balloon. Also, its not really a UFO if every one identifies it as a balloon. ;)

Possibly one of those recently launched propaganda balloons in ROK that was supposed to drift north?
