That is an extraordinary video.
Can I explain it? No. But my inability or any other skeptic's inability to explain it ultimately means nothing.
Many of the believers here are relying on a God-in-the-Gaps logical fallacy to make their case; it is explained by virtue of being unexplained. And in at least one case, they rely on an argument-from-silence logical fallacy; skeptics are supposedly silent on the matter, therefore proving their claims (though skeptics are replying, just not the straw man skeptic that exists only in the minds of these particular believers).
The behavior of some believers in this thread is shameful. In the opening replies, skeptics and the possibility of prosaic explanations were dismissed, mocked and ridiculed before a single skeptic had replied. In some cases, skeptics were personally attacked or vulgarities directed at them. This shows an extraordinary amount of closed-mindedness for a group of people who are supposedly open-minded.

One of these days, I'm going to do an experiment for ATS and release some balloons high into the air, record them, then post a daytime video of some "amazing dancing orbs in the sky". I'll let it go for a couple weeks and let everyone get all googly over these "alien" orbs dancing around in the air. Then I'll break it to them that THEY'RE ONLY BALLOONS!!!

Seriously, how would they all exit the giant bag in a perfectly straight line to the left and right like that? After releasing the balloons that bag would have dropped like a rock but it is still on the same plane at eh balloons to its side.
Originally posted by _BoneZ_ What are you on that makes you think you proved something just by posting those pictures?

If the 747 was "low-flying", it would have been much less than 10,000 feet. Regular helium balloons can reach 20,000 to 30,000 feet.

reminds me of what i thought was "ball lightning" when i was about 7. Except my orb was about 6' in diameter and blueish-purple. it came right through my deck window and then what i thought was 2 minutes passed, could have been much more, and then it just disappeared... they probably sped up time because there is no way that thing would just dissipate in my living room
Yeah, what I saw also came into our living room and I remember that I tried to touch it and when I was about to, it seemed to move away from my hand. I kept trying and I was never able to touch it, it just kept evading my hand.
Again I just think its a big coincidence that I came across this thread right after I had this dream last night.

Robbie Williams had something similar go through his hotel room. That was the start of his participation at ATS
