S+F: Great thread - bit more room to breathe and share ideas in this one
I think that a kite/balloon object is a good candidate in this case and I will repost my thoughts from the original OP:
I think that the best course of action is to eliminate all earthly possiblities before jumping too hastily to the ET conclusion.
There are several issues with the video as it is. We do not have a complete , uninterrupted account of the event. The video provided has several
splices and could appear in a different order. The solution here would be for Jaimie Maussan to provide the whole video for public scrutiny.
Something that needs to be worked out is the actual size/distance of the object. At 2:14 in the video the object actually looks like a 2" square
piece of material snagged on a wire and flapping in the wind!
Another thing that is bugging me is the focus. Unless the object is massive and much further away than the plane, the question is why is it always
more out of focus than the plane and any other object, i.e. buildings, in the video. He does run through the focus but never reaches the clarity that
is achieved when focusing on the plane or the buildings.
Leaving the ET conclusion to the side for now, the main earthly contender, IMO, is a balloon/kite object so it would be fantastic to eliminate this
option from the mix. What would be great would be to get the opinion of some balloon/kite manufacturers to find out if they have ever witnessed
anything like this before. It is very unusual but not impossible to be of earthly origin IMO.
If it is a balloon/kite object then, among other things, it could be a scientific instrument, a party balloon/kite, a homemade experiment or it could
be an object purposely constructed to create a UFO hoax.
There are many reason why this could be a hoax, Pedro Hernandez is not new to UFO sightings, as mentioned before, he could be an ET-magnet, live in an
area of high ET activity or he could be putting food on the table for his family. I am sure Jaimie Maussan paid the witness for the video.
Whatever the motive we can still examine the object separately.
A possible explaination:
The object could well be balloon/kite tethered to the ground. We do not yet know the size or distance of the object so we do not know the height. It
could be 400ft or 4000ft. I do not know so anyone with some experience in this dept. is more than welcome to provide an answer
The object could be pre-loaded with mini balloons/kites. It has been mentioned that the objects formed a perfectly straight line. The problem with
this (potential) red herring is that the straight line effect is only seen for a very short period in the video before crashing out in different
directions. Water from a water pistol forms a straight line. This being the case then it could be that the mini-balloons/kites are shot out of each
end using some from of ballistic device that could be controlled remotely by mobile phone or set by a timer. The speed would ensure that a straight
line would form for a brief period of time.
I am not claiming to know what it is. I have no idea. I am just offering up ideas for discussion - please don't shoot me - it could be ET, balloons
or a very good CGI hoax. One thing I do know is that the ATS crowd will come up with the goods one way or another
