1. Object as "point source":
That looks like a reflective balloon or similar.
2. Object as "jellyfish":
That looks like a camera auto focus effect.
3. Object movement:
That looks like wind movement plus camera movement.
*** 1.) You are half right… it was a point source!
) I wish you were there, you would know then how it was so not a balloon or similar. As a kid
(5-16 years) I grew up less than a mile from “Kings Island” (large amusement park) north-east of Cincinnati Ohio. Every evening for the first 10
years or so they would (weather permitting) launch two hot air balloons, I’ve seen that type of balloon in the sky thousands of times. Would go and
watch the balloon launches in New Mexico. My father was a “free man” when I was half-way through 5th grade and the very day after the divorce, he
took his first flying lesson. He became a 14 year bachelor and lucky for me, a flying NUT
) It was like every weekend he had an air show to fly us
to, some times one on Saturday and a different one on Sunday! We were always going somewhere, and I learned to fly, navigate and know what
“things” look like when you are flying. Watching the “skies” for other craft was one of my co-helper jobs sitting on a pillow to see out!
Oshkosh Wisconsin Air-Shows became old hat. Flying to South Carolina for “lunch” was a normal happening. I became interested in “energy” when
my dad built an in ground home of his own design. Started study of many forms of energy, producing Hydrogen with a home made generator when I was
young. Studied the different types of balloons used in weather studies. Became fascinated with future designs of aircraft when my friend from Wright
Patterson Air Force Base and I got to know each other. They couldn’t talk about what was on the edge of aviation technology… so I studied what
ever I could get my hands on in the public realm about the leading edge flying objects the world was producing. I’m not “blank” about flying
craft. I was not prior to this UFO experience, much of a believer, more like 20% there could be something “out there”. To see “something”,
make zero noise, move across the sky like a flash of light, stop instantly for a moment, then shoot off a different direction in a straight line,
repeating this to make a “4” in the sky…. Well, I just went from 20% to 100%. I would like to find out it was something of “ours”, would
make me feel better. I just seriously doubt “we” or anyone else on planet earth has anything that could stay together to maneuver like that let
alone go that fast. Let “pretend” we do have something like that… why on earth would you play with it over a populated area? Don’t they save
that stuff for area 51 and alike?
Also 2.) the “auto focus” deal… well it looked just the same when standing there looking at it while my wife filmed it… and from time to time
I would pull my head away from the camera to “find it” and it looked the same shape as it did through the camera. Did I mention my Dad’s also a
photography NUT too, so I’ve seen the sunlight through the lens pictures with the small diamonds of sunlight light in the pictures caused by the
inner working of the camera lens. However, those diamonds ARE diamonds and if that’s what you think may have happened (regardless of what I saw),
then why would there only be the top part sort of diamond shaped, but the bottom half was not.. The bottom being flat at some times, even having a
shadow or dark area underneath. Especially before it turned into a shear shape and few farther away.
3.) Take some stills from the video, maybe that might help. I’m just saying it’s hard to believe me I can only imagine (thinking back to what I
thought of such things before September 5th), but wind doesn’t move objects across the sky miles in the flash of a second… stop, make a 30 degree
turn go in a straight line again as fast, stop turn 60 degrees, dart off again and stop right near where it had intersected the first flight. I swear
on my faith in God, Jesus and all things holy, this thing was moving blink eye fast, miles across the sky, high overhead or home on 8235 Bridgewater
Trail, Tallahassee Florida on September 5th 2005, Monday a holiday. Kind Regards, -Kent (Just trying to clear things up)
