You beat me to it - yes, remember this being discussed from that thread and indeed one other.... by the end you could easily tell it was a balloon... I remember seeing a pic of the exact shape but can't find it....it's all in here somewhere....


You might be thinking about this picture:



From the page BenDozer referred to, LINK

Hiya!


No, seriously, it *is* a genuinely interesting vid.

BUT...as Devil's Advocate, I'd have to go with BenDozer's suggested post earlier that it's a balloon.

When the vid starts, you're looking at the object head on or there abouts and you can see that bit hanging down. When the 'appendages' appear, it looks like the angle of the object has changed so that you're seeing from a 45degree angle so you can then see the 'appendages' that were not immediately visible from a more head on view. And you can still see that hanging down bit but again, less visible due to the angle change.

I'm not trying to be difficult, mind you - I am a believer. But I like to have all possible and most plausable explanations thrown out first.

Still, cool vid, nonetheless!

Yes, that's the stuff - along with this one also (which has the same number of spikes and is Brazilian I believe).

I think you may be right on the angle thing, but I swear the number of tentacles changed from 10 to eleven at one point in the vid. It's a bit of a weird one for sure.

A little correction about the article.
Who shot the video is probable the mother of the children in the background
Just a correction to your correction, it was the grandmother of the boy that appears on the video.

That and much more information can be seen on the other thread that muriaz already mentioned.

Some things I remember is that the video is relatively old, it was some years old when it appeared on YouTube.

And yes, I think it's a balloon, and one of the children even said that.

Another edit to add that the video was made in 1995.

was i the only one who instantly thought of the movie "SIGNS" when that video started playing?

i was waiting for Jaquelin Phoenix to yell VOMINOES CHILDREN!

I wish more video had been taken. Or if it had, the full thing released.

As far as stating unequivocally that this is a balloon, that's ridiculous. No one can prove this is a balloon any more than anyone can prove it's an alien thing. Just because balloons exist with spikes, does not automatically make this a balloon. It looks rather drab imo, if it's a balloon.

But regardless, I think it's poor investigation to say "Hmm.. there are balloons in roughly that shape.. open and shut case, it's a balloon!"

the question I would ask is whether a ship of that configuration would be stable during flight in the atmosphere and at high speeds. The laws of physics don't change to incorporate flings of fantasy.

Agreed. As much as I might think this video is the balloon suggestion.... something about it is pretty strange - and yeh, it really does look like the 'arms' just grow out of it.

I only wish people would put the videoing device down onto a hard surface and use that as a steady point to help reduce the shakes. But of course, that's not really on your mind when you're videoing something that could be ground breaking!

I'm usually one of the first to look for earthly, real-world explanations.

I, for one do Not think it's a balloon.

Just as you said, of course no one can easily prove it's a balloon, but to help keep the discussions focused and logical (if we ever want to have the non-UFO community to take things seriously), we need to 'throw out' or attempt to disprove the most obvious explanations first.

And showing that people don't immediately jump on the, 'It's gotta be a UFO!' idea, we don't get pigeon-holed into a stereotype.

Not only do the tentacles change in number, they also curl at the tips in changing directions. The tips of the tentacles frequently change direction like a starfish does. Maybe that's what it is, a super imposed starfish!

Yeah this is a pretty funky video, and I'm torn between the possibility of it being something amazing and the possibility of it being a balloon.
But what gets me is that how come in a pretty impoverished part of the world such as Brazil, they are still able to capture 'something' on video which sparks such a debate, but then in our developed countries we get so many people with wild claims and absolutely NO footage or anything to speak of...?
That's not to say that there haven't been any, just I'd like to see more.

You might find it interesting.

Spiky UFO Brazil thread on ATS



I am trying to find the other one i think Phage helped debunk, if i recall it was on about them saying balloon in portuguese or something. I'll keep searching

My first observation was "why, why, why all the drunken UFO footage (by that I mean, lack of focus, unsteady hand movement. Why can't I see some close view shot on a tripod at a decent resolution?)

My second observation was "man, that ugly black Kite needs some more colour to it ((although aliens as a whole don't seem 'into' coloued vehicles)), before realizing that this dodgy footage of kite/ballon was meant to be a UFO.

Is it a UFO? I don't think so, but each to their own.

Found it!!


I correct myself though, it was 'Daddybare' not 'Phage' as i posted previous, and here's a quote from that thread:

Brazil if famous for making "Special Shape Balloons"

"Impulse" can be translated as impulse, nothing to do with balloons.


In Castilian Impulso means hot air balloon... maybe the words comes from the loud sound of the burners igniting but indeed Impulso does mean hot air balloon... globo = globe could be any round object... most often used to mean a light-bulb

[edit on 21-12-2008 by DaddyBare]


You are wrong, I have never heard of a globo referred to as impulso, like Armap said impulso means thrust, or it could also mean pulse, like a light pulse. And balloons are called globo (s). Hot air balloons are called globos de aire caliente or globos aerostáticos.

Light bulbs are called bombillos (as), lámparas incandescentes, or focos.

You are either misinformed or playing with us, all of what you have said is a lie.

Castilian and spanish are the same language.




just might be that with all the different dialects spoken the only correct way depends entirely on where you are and who your speaking too...


Nooo.... this is also a lie. A globo is a balloon from the rio grande down to patagonia.

If something in the sky is floating by slowly like a balloon, rotating or spinning like a balloon, has the same shape as a balloon, THEN IT'S A BALLOON!!!

And I don't know where some of you get "morphing" from. Alien beings will not sit in a craft that is constantly morphing, spinning, rotating, doing flips, or any other actions that a balloon would. Think about it, how could you possibly go to a planet in a ship that is constantly morphing, spinning, rotating, flipping around in the air? How could you get any research done or look at anything on the ground when your ship is constantly in rotation or flipping or morphing?

Anytime you see something in the air spinning, rotating, flipping, etc., it will mostly likely be a balloon or remote controlled craft, every time.

There could be a way of telling here if it is a balloon or not, it needs someone with a little knowledge, but I think anyone can do it if they try, I cant see well enough right now to do it.

If the arms do indeed grow out of the sides, then the Object must surely grow in size? is there a way of measuring the diameter? even at an angle where the arms wouldn't be visible, the size will be the same from any angle.

So to put this to rest, or open a can of worms, either way, measure it, that data can't lie can it.
