That LongBeach helicopter video was amazing because it looked like
the UFO dropped more mass than it itself was made of. I wonder if
the police sent squad cars to the general "drop zone" with Infrared
binoculars to look around for heat signatures? It seems that law
enforcement sees a great many unusual events. If it weren't for the
modern video/internet age, we would never know about any of them.

I saw something simillar to what the op posted a couple of weeks ago here in Austin, TX. It was too far West to be able to gauge correctly what was going on. As I tried to drive to the West it was over.

To whomever posted the video link Police helicopter films UFO that is exactly what I saw.



Again, when you see something coming out the bottom of the object, that is what it ends up being almost every single time. The reason is that Candles, flares, or a similar item is used to create the Hot air in the bag, and what is seen dropping off are pieces of burning wax or plastic.

Not to be picky, but do you have a link to how these hot air balloons that are powered by flares, candles or the like? I've never heard of that particular type of power source... more like the traditional gas fired hot air balloons ...but those dont drip...

I beg to differ. We used to make these types of balloons all the time.

It's not hard to type a few words into google. Its easier than writing a post asking for someone else to send you a link. Or do you rely on other people for all your conclusions too? Google is your friend.

I would say about half of the balloons we sent up caught fire at altitude. When the plastic starts to melt and flaming drips are falling it looks kind of cool.

The "ufo" in the video is not moving fast. The helicopter is moving fast and circling the balloon. That creates the illusion that the bag is zipping through the air when in reality it is just the ground moving behind it as the chopper moves.

Jesus guy...wtf is your problem... I just asked you a question..I wouldn't even know where to get started to find out about candle powered balloons.

Round these parts, we calls em' Flying Farolitios. We suspend stick candles from a paper canopy as opposed to a plastic bag (roughly 4'x4'). Looks something like a child's parachute. Common occurrence at Christmas time...and sanctioned by the powers that be.

Apparently variations on these home-style air-balloons are pretty common worldwide. In my opinion, the object in the 'Police Helicopter' video meets the visual criteria.

Good Fortune

Yeah, I linked a site about it in my first post, but I’ll put it here for you again:

Actually when the OP first mentioned that it was dropping something, the first thing that came to my mind is UFO Balloons. These tend to sometimes drop their fuel as they fly, and it shows up as smaller lights dropping from the main light. Maybe someone let some off as part of the Fourth or July celebration.

Tiloke and OBE1 also have the same things mentioned in their posts. They are also known as Flying Lanterns.

Tiloke is also correct in his evaluation of the movement of the helicopter in relation to the apparent movement of the object. It should also be mentioned that the helicopter was using FLAR or infrared as its camera, thus exaggerating the size of the burning fuel source. From the ground these objects are hard to judge size on as they are brightly lit on the inside, and appear as a larger object at higher altitude, rather then as a smaller one that is lower. The bright interior lighting exaggerates the objects size when put against a dark sky background.

Also just to mention it, these are illegal to use almost everywhere in the US as they can cause fires, so check your local laws before thinking about playing around with one.

This is too all you people asking for videos, and camera pictures...
While its very good to get evidence, and proof, sometimes we dont have the means. Had I seen the lights that night, I would have been shirt out of luck for documenting it, my camera runs on 2 AA batteries, and I havent gotten replacements yet.
Had that happened to me, should I NOT post about my experience? Maybe someone can calm me down, tell me what it might have been, link to a newspaper showing details of fireworks. It's what friends do for one another.
We're not always out for getting evidence.
Maybe Youtube would be a better place to hang out, especially if your going to use caps and curse at people.

While I can understand you're point of view Kai, I'm also kind of awestruck that no one else had anything to document it with. Not even a cell phone to get photos with? I'm just at a loss for words on that alone. It's just mind boggling to think of how many people could have seen something, and DIDN'T record anything but their thoughts on it. Call me whatever you will, but it's just odd is all.

While it might have appeared to be at high altitude to the OP, if the object was bright and low altitude it would not have been visible over a large area. With that in mind, very few folks other then the OP would have been in the visible range to take a photo of it anyway.

between 2 and 3 on the aforementioned night, I was traveling west bound through Arkansas on I-40, and I saw an luminescent object in the southern sky moving from west to east at a very high rate of speed. Did not flash, did not look any aircraft I have ever seen, and as far away as it was, it only took about five seconds to cross the whole sky, I mean this thing was really moving!

I have seen something like that before myself. An object is moving mighty quick when it goes horizon to horizon in just a few seconds.

Where abouts in AR, pray tell? I used to live in North Central AR for 16 years, so I may be able to pin down a base near there. Most of AR is under a military flight zone. The area I lived in was on the outskirts of one. They would fly low-level sorties with their belly planes just North of town. I've even seen a F-16 fly over a school there. A mighty interesting area for military operations, but that's about all the place is good for, in my opinion.

Hey Pokey Oates,
