First, you have to realize
the video is hideously edited. We can't be sure what happens in what sequence without seeing the original video. But the analogy I'd use is flying a
kite. If you attached a bunch of balloons along the string attached to the kite, they'd move in unison along with the kite. That is EXACTLY how these
objects behave when the string is under tension, like balloons tied to a kite string
b. the orbs coming out of the main object seem to be emitted in a uniformed straight line. in order to fly around in the "disturbed" airflow
once outside and moving, wouldn't you need lots of string in between each balloon to allow this? How come they all come out immediately one after
another when being first pulled from the main object?. Plus, wouldn't each balloon, being an egg shaped "aerodynamically...ish correct" be forced to
go in its own direction...i.e. Aerodynamic principles, Bernoulli’s principle. High pressure to a low pressure? when first coming in contact with the
outside airflow? I have never seen a balloon move in a straight line at speed before...certainly if they were pulled out at speed wouldn't they
instantly move about all over the place when meeting the airflow outside. They seem to go away from the main object and then return?
balloons are attached at different spacings on the string. Some more closely and some more distant from each other, but the point on the string they
are attached to seems to be fixed. I don't see them moving on the string. What is clear to me is that at one point, in the screencaps I showed, there
is tension on the strings.
At other points in the video, there is no tension on the string. Because the video is so badly edited we can't tell if it's the same string, or a
d. The main object does not seem to deflate? Surely with any balloon inside it would show some deflation once ejecting it's contents?
e. How did the main object remain airborne after ejecting its contents? Was the main object inflated?
Does a windsock deflate when a breeze
is blowing? A windsock is sort of a hollow flexible object not totally unlike the main object in this video. The windsock is better designed for its
purpose but the breeze can inflate both the windsock and this thing.
As for it remaining airborne, I suspect there are could be some unreleased balloons inside, or another possibility is, it's just being lifted by the
balloons on the right of the view in this screencap (you can't see them in this screencap but you can if you watch the video).
From the close ups you have kindly provided, I still can't get my head around the uniformed way in which the contents of the object seem to
come out, in equal and opposite directions at the same speed.
Yeah, well looking at a single screenshot isn't going to give you a correct
picture. The way you have the best chance of wrapping your head around what's going in is to find the backlit version of the video by the second
photographer, because in that one you can really see the balloons attached to a kite string effect much more clearly, but you can't really see it in a
single screenshot. Here's the best I could do to give you a clue:
From the 2010 UFO congress video ArMaP linked to above, time index 47:43
The black dot in the middle is the main object.
To the left of that you see a black line that curves down as it gets closer to the left edge. Those are lots of balloons on a string. Why this video
is an important clue is that it shows the string is probably attached to the ground somewhere in the lower left (just follow the direction the string
is pointing at the left edge to get an idea of the string attachment point).
This same video shows the string on the right is probably not attached to the ground, because it gets higher toward the right, which you can't see in
this screencap but you can if you watch the video. So during this part of the video, there is tension on all three strings, the one on the left going
to the ground, the one on the right going to the air, and the one tethering the main object to the ground.
At some point, it appears tension of the strings is lost, when we see the objects dancing around. But I think they are still probably attached to the
string based on the way they move when they dance around.
Sorry this thread is so long I don't remember what page the second video was posted on, but you need to watch that one very carefully if you hope to
understand what's going on here.
