Montreal artist Cesar Saez is making a giant, helium filled banana that he intends to launch in Texas, sending it 20-30 miles up. The title of the project is "Geostationary Banana Over Texas."

The BBC says it will be "between 15-20% of the size of the full moon" when viewed from Earth. Link (Thanks, Rich!)
