First of all I want to thank the lovely Yummy Freelunch, for giving me permission to add my own input in a seperate thread. I think I may have an explaination for her thread entitled:

UFO releases intelligent moving spheres!! First ever video footage!

And in her thread this video was the subject of much revleation and it is still the topic of much joy for the alien believers. yet lets have a closer look at this video:

I think I may have an explaination.

While it was an Interesting video. To me, it really looked like a group of balloons floating up into the sky and then experienceing some ridiculous turbelence and wind disruptions in the upper atmosphere. Also it kind of looked like in one or two areas that it actually got stuck in a sort of wind tunnel, which caused it to spin even fast and sort of twist itself side ways. While it was in the motion of twisting or in the motion of spinning I guess the band on the balloons broke apart and the other balloons got stuck in the same wind current, also spinning do the the turbelence. In some areas in looked even more saucer like, this can be caused by a flow of upper air and a flow of lower air condencing the balloon. In some areas in looked like some of them just disappeared, which makes me think they popped due to the pressure.

Sort of like this:

There is a lot of similarity. Now your vid to me it looked like the balloon were much farther in the sky, which brings even more greater pressure and turbulenece:

The following vid, is ok, but not really evidence.

However, this video, provides evidence of turbulenece and air pressure.

I was asked a few questions in that thread. So I will do my best to answer them here.

When the balloon is in the air or the sky. A few things begin to happen, much like a bird. A bird flies with the air and sometimes the bird glides and sometimes the bird just looks as if it is stationary. Balloons at that height could pull the same illusion.

At those levels of altitude. Yu are not only going to get strong wind going in both directions, but you are going to get pressure. Wind going back and forth, in both directions for instance:

Air traveling from the left to the right. Converging air, will create an air pocket or turbulence. However, if the wind and the pressure is strong enough it will create a sort of an air vaccuum. In which the objects just stay still and do not move or appear as if they are not moving. They can appear saucer like do to the pressure of the air condensing them greatly.

By stationary I mean something like this as propsoed by the video:

Look at the far left one and I mean the only one on the left of your screen. It appears to have gotten caught in a sperate air flow. Now this is important, in some cases and in the majority of cases air flow goes one way in the sky. When it doesn't it is called turbulenece, say your on a plane and the plane is going smoothly, thats becuase the air is going one way, however, an opposing air current can sometimes be created and the plane will shake do to turbulenece.

What you could have been seen in the main UFO video was the current of air in flowing in one area. Keeping the balloons in the same linear pattern, before breaking off.

Watch this. This somewhat explains the linear convergence pattern taken by balloons:

and this video demonstrates very well the convergence of balloons after being released.

What can make balloons do this? Well for one thing. The static created by the balloons can keep them together.

and more convergence of balloons in a pattern:

Personally. I believe the video shows a group of balloons, however, it has come to my attention that the video could have been CGI'ed/altered. There are a few inconsistencies as jkrog08 mentioned. If these are infact true then perhaps they are balloons, but altered balloons. That would still work, or they could be completely altered.

I could not find Balloons dispersing in the air, but this is hwta it would look like in ground conditions:

The balloons begin to seperate, but they do not disperse all at once. if the proper wind conditions were their then you could of had one too balloons sneek out and get caught in the air current and then it disperses other balloons, keeping the majoirty of balloons together. Also lets not forget, in that video of the UFo's their are some of them that just simply vanish, a balloon exploding in the sky would disappear. As demonstrated here:

Hopefully, I have provided enough evidence to support the balloon theory. Which is what I believe this video is of. It is not uncommon for balloons to be released like this. I appreciate you taking the time to read this

The above was strictly my opinion of the events and lets face it I am probably wrong, but I do not believe that I am..

The following gives excellent drawings of wind convergence and divergence which is most commonly seen.

well thats a very well thought out thread with a lot of evidence that adds up to...nothing.

sorry but no. The original video is not balloons. You got a better chance of pleading CGI.

You might include the wind shear phenomenon into your considerations. Just added the same as a reply to zorgon on the other thread.

edit: I should have added that I tend to support the CGI explanation, though.

Yes. I only did this to provide something for the people who think the video is real. I believe that is actually CGI made. The wind sheer phenomena is a great addition. But I only did this to provide "real" video evidence. And those balloons seem to match up quite well....

Not an expert, but I agree with the above poster. CGI still seems much more plausible than balloons.

posted on Jul, 7 2009 @ 04:09 PM
Balloons??? BALLOONS... I hope your just playing devils advocate because thats harder to believe than it being an alien craft.

Appreciate the work you've done here but no chance.

If this is CGI can someone post some proof... otherwise it's still a UFO.

Talking of CGI, it's interesting to note that Pedro Hernandez posts lots of videos showing 'spheres' making similar motions to this one. It's also interesting that another (?) Pedro Hernandez is a CGI expert, with demo videos on Photoshop After Effects. Couldn't be the same guy could it?

well if thats true then its certainly worth looking into.

also, there may be more than one pedro hernandez out's possible...

Yea. I think that is a common name. Is their anyway to find out if this is teh same guy or not?

Also here is the wind shear effect:

Wind shear, sometimes referred to as windshear or wind gradient, is a difference in wind speed and direction over a relatively short distance in the atmosphere. Wind shear can be broken down into vertical and horizontal components, with horizontal wind shear seen across weather fronts and near the coast, and vertical shear typically near the surface, though also at higher levels in the atmosphere near upper level jets and frontal zones aloft.

Its not balloons its CGI.

Why is it?

What is the mental block that some have,that will not let you say 'ok hands up,I haven't got a f***ing clue'

Is it that hard to do,instead of saying CGI?

I just want to say I think balloons or some kind of man made device - with an inbuilt timer that releases them could be possible.

The volume of them is where I come up stumps. Also we always get the same type from this guy - I dunno, something seems fishy - and I of course could be entirely wrong!

Please don't shoot me. (why do all these avatars glorify guns/war - that is one thing "they" will never understand - and probably stay away until we glorify flowers instead)

What if cyanide and lemonade look the same in a glass? Does that mean they are both the same?

Just because something might look a little like something else, does not in and of itself mean it is the thing in question.

You have to factor in the eyewitness who is filming etc.

To me one has better chance arguing for CGI, but I don't see this as being CGI but I would like to see the original footage tested. I don't personally feel that what was seen was balloons.

It did say he was a sky watcher.

Just as a twitcher is more likely to see rare birds,he's more likely to catch sight of them if that is where they occur.

Well lets see it laid out for all to see then.

Oh by the way Myth,nicely done thread,even though I disagree.

Thanks mate. I think we are all trying to find the truth, whatever the truth is. And the only way to get their is through opposing views and constructive arguments/debates.

When I showed the footage to my hubby a few days ago, he was of the opinion that it was balloons aswell! At least one of us, in this relationship, have our feet firmly on the ground.

Ive watched the video so many times, I dont think its alien, but its not balloons, maybe cgi?
