I've just read through 24 pages... before deciding to comment my thoughts on it. I'm glad that someone with CGI or video manipulation software could
come forward and offer some kind of evidence to show those that aren't as knowledgeable that it can be done.
As for the Original threadstarter, I too wish for his own personal reputation he doesn't walk away from this. I witnessed a glowing orb in september
here in my home town, (Manchester, UK) as of yet, despite it being investigated by M.A.P.I.T no further explanation has been given for what it is I
saw. However during my original post i too was brought under scrutiny, its difficult to try and stay level headed when people flame or bait you with
insults. Its not to say that your a hoaxer because you retaliate its just part of being a human being, if someone attacks you, you defend yourself.
I still hope that despite all of his words in the last few pages, that echelon follows up his investigation and concludes they were talking about the
same balloon on the phone. I think that if echelon isn't rude and asks the right questions to his parents neighbour, over the phone, it wouldnt take
too long for them to just confirm the object being videod is the same one being used by the neighbour.
I propose to echelon117 to do a u-turn, ignore the people that have flamed you and follow this up with a final investigation.
1. Call your parents and ask your father to use a digital camera or camcorder and have it charged and ready.
2. Call your parents neighbour, explain that, due to a mis-identification on your part, a debating website and yourself would like full closure on the
subject, if its not intrusive could your father call round at xx.xx am/pm (arrange a time/date) for a viewing and photography session of said
object./balloon he uses.
If this neighbour is using balloons for weather purposes and is on the level he wont mind, we dont need to know the full details of why he does what
he does, but photography or video capture of the object he uses would be very very helpful and you'd be greatful for his assistance.
Throughout this thread I have tried to keep an open mind, the original video although shot with a mobile phone, was actually pretty good considering.
I hope you change your mind and follow this up with a final investigation.
