That's fine. Arguing against someone's beliefs is like taking an HB pencil to a gun-fight, or a theme park gift shop splash coat to a hurricane Irma.
Point being you're welcome to link it together how you want and if you see it differently to me that's fine. I'm just saying in my mind, the weight of
the argument has considerably shifted in the more mundane direction.
For me, L.A. does not need to legitimize nor legitimize the phenomena, it's out there! Though I'm sure for some people this L.A. case will, or does.
There are many great UFO videos out of L.A. and major cities the world over and sometimes it's harder to link what's being seen with anything going on
in the area. Perhaps because some of them are "old" videos and it's hard to work with a case so old.
This time round though, it's relatively real-time and it only took a matter of days to ascertain there was a festival with lots of these balloons,
with designs pretty much identical to the OP's video, in the vicinity at least 12 hours before the OP video. There's video of them much as there is of
the "UFO", which let's be honest, in the "high strangeness" element of the UFO phenomena, is being only mildly-strange. The helicopter element
certainly adds attention
to this particular story but not so much weight
But like I say, folks are welcome to break down the information and come to their own conclusions. It's been fun, but for me, it's settled. My video
makes my perception on this pretty clear - this one has more hallmarks of a balloon than high strangeness, but that there are other things going on in
the sky above L.A. that need to be considered (and investigated!).
Not everyone is going to have the same ideas about high strangeness nor explanations but maybe this shows what I mean
I'm certainly interested if
others can break down their processes of elimination, whether you think it's a balloon or not.
Sat 26 Aug:
All day: High Life festival at NOS Center, lots of trade stalls and advertising balloons including Brass Knuckles (high life video)
Sun 27th Aug:
All day: Second day of the festival, located slightly east of West Covina (closeup photo of Brass Knuckles balloon)
Mon 28th Aug:
6.30AM, helium filled balloon lost during early morning de-rig (educated guess!)
6.45AM, object in sky seen slightly east of West Covina (first video)
6.50AM, object approached by 1 department sheriffs (possible LASD colors, ie green, eurocopter, seen in video)
7AM, object floating gently west, passes over West Covina (second video)
7.30AM, object continues floating west, drifting north of El Monte/south of Arcadia (third video)
7.30AM, object approached by 2nd department sheriff's (possible Pasadena sheriff eurocopter, blue color, seen in video)
8-9AM, object reaches Altadena, (photos)
8-9AM, object approached by 3rd department sheriffs (possibly LASD again, puma helicopter, seen in photo)
Beyond 9AM, object drifts into mountains, possibly out of view .. if someone goes for a walk in the hills outside of Altadena, maybe they'll find
The dude here who contacted Brass Knuckles on FB asking for a statement (kudos to you), you might want to scrutinize the other names in the High Life
fest video balloons and try similar
It might be a good lead to see if someone has been sent out to retrieve the balloon, if it's been found in the
hills or such, because a couple of other balloons with slightly different (but still somewhat similar) designs to Brass Knuckles are evident in that
H.L. fest video.
Of course, if you live in the vicinity of the San Gabriel Mountains, and you have the time... you could go search for it yourself
(by the looks of
it, a relatively impossible task, though you might have some luck using the "2" angeles crest highway! edit: wow, cool road, I want to drive
