SOLVED:

The object, which appeared on closer examniation to be a balloon advertising a store selling marijuana concentrates and vaporizer pens, was seen in West Covina and Sierra Madre.


“One person took a telephoto shot of it. It appeared to be an advertisement balloon for a THC (E-cigarette) that got away.” he said. “I followed it across the foothills from above Sierra Madre towards Monrovia canyon around 11:30 a.m.” Several witnesses reported seeing a large, white advertising balloon emblazoned with a corporate logo in the same time and vicinity of the object.

Supposedly, it was a car advertisement balloon that got away. Whether you believe that or not is up to you.

You are correct, here it is again..

The guy who created the video in this thread is quoted in the article:

One video, posted by YouTube user Julian Lopez, appears to show a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department helicopter circling around the object for an inspection around 7 a.m. over West Covina.

LMAO!

Good day fella's!

Some local sleuths


Well who? Where is their photo with EXIF data? Why didn't they take a photo to show the context ie it floating over the city. Or is that photo simply to say what it was and isn't of the event itself? We're not being given that detail, or any detail really, just vague assurances. The logo doesn't fully match the pattern on the object in the video. Why does the video object have a face on it, there isn't one in that photo. Does it have a different logo on each side? Cos the pattern on the side in the early part of the video looks different to what's on the other side.

They say that pic is a telephoto lens. It could just as easily be taken from a parking lot. And something seems off with the zoom ratio of the clouds behind to the object (thankfully they provided 2 photos to be able to judge the accuracy of the telephoto lens statement). Maybe it is the answer, but right now it seems like only half the answer, like chinese whispers - a lot of the important information to allow us to make our own informed decisions, has been omitted.

Furthermore, if this balloon had enough helium to keep it aloft, when it's being a normal tethered advertising balloon (as seen in this photo with its anchor line), why, when it had "broken free" did it maintain an altitude of say 200feet, and then very slowly edge its way west? Also considering on the photo you have a clear part that forms the underside, why did the object in the video move the underside area by tilting forwards?

Not everything adds up. But they need to say it was something, the amount of attention this story has been getting the last few days. I'd call it a "convenient" solution, I wouldn't say it's the actual one at this point. Honestly the drone balloon seems more plausible than this untethered balloon explanation, yet as you might expect we are being adamantly told it's this, it's solved, it's over, get over it and move on. If it all adds up for you now then that's fair enough.

But please, enlighten me how you get a helium balloon to maintain altitude and rotation for an hour, and maybe I'll come round to believing it all adds up.

Another thing. Over the 2 hours it was in the sky, it wouldn't suddenly have MORE helium inside it. Yet it apprently drifted off and over the mountains? Somehow it became even less full of air and more full of helium the longer the event went on? And if it came down somewhere, it should be retrievable. Have the company in question given a statement? Or been fined?

IMO this isn't over until it's been retrieved if it was simply a helium balloon nor til the company in question has given a statement, some kind of proof if they can, ie CCTV of people coming in telling them their balloon has broken free, and enjoyed their taste of being in the internet limelight.

I agree with you. This does not look like the "Brass Knuckles" advertising balloon. I took a screen shot and fiddled with a paint program to get a better view of this object zoomed in. The original object looks to be made of a metallic, aluminum-like material, with a square oriface or pattern on it. There also seems to be a dark pattern on the bottom of this circular object. Why no CLOSE UP pictures from the helicopter?

IMO the advertising balloon in your photos is not the same as the object that's the subject of this thread. The only similarity is that both objects are round.

Doesn't jive. Unless the video has some bizarre artifact going on, the 'dark spot' doesn't rotate consistent with a tether....towards the end, it appears to rotate on a horizontal axis and as it hits the one O'clock position, it starts to protrude outside of the circular shape. Maybe not aliens but sometimes the mundane explanations are even dumber than the 'ufo' or secret-tech explanations.

You had better look again and take a closer look. Seems like someone wants a quick easy explanation...despite what is shown in the video not matching the other balloon pic; granted not as clear in detail as we would like but doesn't behave as tethered (horizontal axis of rotation of protruding dark spot) or broke from tether (still stationary).

But then again, at around 6:40 the child states that he sees something coming out of the bottom. Like a little "laser" a "really long one" as he stated. Which could be the tether, or cord.

You can raise this point and dismiss that this was merely a balloon simply because it had a 'line' coming out of it according to the child. What you also need to consider is that this is DEFINITELY NOT A BALLOON, where it HAS A STRING, or NOT.

I have a video of a balloon. Balloon's dont behave like this so whether you want to say EVEN if a string was there, this is not a balloon. So get over yourself


-----------------------
This isn't to support what I just said, but here's the actual balloon that was seen 3 hours later, as a cover up, in comparison with the opaque (no light passing through it), metallic, craft.


There's NO balloon on earth that behaves like this. You can't put a tale on a human and say that it's a dog.

And for the record, there is a 3 foot being in that craft who is about as scary as a passive corpse eater. He is kind of like a spider that hides but has no fangs or muscle. He was just sitting calmly in there. They have a nice craft because they have advanced tech. But it's just a small little dude in there trying to expose aliens. And they are non-violent.

Do me something, define what a balloon's structure is, components of it, heavyness.

A balloon is light in weight as it is floated by air.

Balloons can't control to be stationary. A balloon is light weight. Imagine a balloon.


Something you need to know is that this appears to have at least 4 inches of outter material. Helium balloons have thin skin or else they wouldn't float. The only POSSIBLE even CLOSEST way to get a result as in the vid, is to have an incredibly heavy balloon that can avoid air currents.

Correct. Your analysis is sound. I think we can sanely say this is NOT your car-lot advertising balloon or balloon with a tail.

The real question is why couldn't they just come out and say it was a drone? IMO, that would have me pause and sorta accept well, hey, it might have been a drone. Except they came out with this mumbo jumbo theory that is even worse than swamp gas nonsense. Is the drone theory less safe than the laughable balloon jackassery theory? Maybe. Not sure but what this object really is is a mystery more than ever before.

SMH.

Yeah, kind of nice try brass knuckles, free exposure for Xzibit and all, but it's not even close. Where's the white lettering for a start? Our UFO dark area is 80% black, the brass knuckles logo is what, 30% black? What about the 'ear' shape on our UFO? Doesn't seem to be one in the brass knuckles logo.



And conveniently, Brass Knuckles doesn't have a premesis of any kind because it's a "line" by xzibit and co. So where was it tethered? NOS center or something?

Another observation based on the video footages: On the first helicopter approach, when it circles, the UFO stays static (seen in Juan's video). When the helicopter departs, it starts moving. When the helicopter comes back for the second buzz, it goes completely static again (seen in the FedEx depot video). So that's one very disciplined weed balloon, that freezes in its tracks when po-po are in the area...!

Like I said though, if "Brass Knuckles" answers it for you then that's great, you can move on and leave the questioning & discussion to the rest of us

on question comes to mind, if this was an advertisement why on earth would someone keep it that high so no one can see whats written on it?

Notice the blue part that blends perfectly with the sky. But you notice it's quite opaque, a dull gray. So it's not reflective.
I don't know much about sky illusions or mirages. But my guess is the first time seeing an alien craft, that camo tech isn't inaccurate. How many other objects have a part missing from them as if blending into the sky
As you can see if it were any bit reflective, it'd show reflections else where.

The object, at the end of the first video, looks more like the Brass Knuckles balloon.

(click for full size)


One thing that makes it look different is the time of day, as in the first video the sun was still rising, so the light is more orange and there's no direct light on the object. At the end of the first video, as we can see above, the object appears more white than at the beginning.

And this is what it looked like at the end of the third video posted by the man that made the first video:

I don't have any way of knowing if it was really the Brass Knuckles balloon, but it sure looks like it.

When it was tethered the logo was readable.
