Radiosonde from a weather balloon. You're (obviously), supposed to mail it back.

Speaking of balloons there was one that was launched 9-20-16 by a radio amateur in Atlanta.
It is still up and operating. Here is a link to tracking information: https://tracker.habhub.org/#!mt=terrain ... w-6&nyan=1

Use the drop down that shows last 3 days and try all. It’s amazing where it’s been.
I suppose I am geek so I watch it every day or so especially in the winter. Last winter RTW
in 6 days above FL 400.

Dirk, Is this a different type of weather balloon that is sent up daily to have lasted this long?

Yes they are different because of the flight duration and sun UV exposure.

There’s a lot on the internet, as usual, but scattered around on many websites.
