Originally posted by Sly1oneIf it is balloons what the hell is up with the section of video from 2:45 to 2:55? Clearly an object comes into screen and abruptly flies to the right stops then flies off to the upper right again. Explain this to me please if they are indeed balloons.
Lol absolutely not, no way. I watched this several times to make sure I didn't make those elementary mistake in observation before posting my opinion.
If you watch that particular part of the video again and again you will notice the camera STOPS zooming in on the center trio of balloons before the top right object zooms off to the upper right corner of the screen. Then the object stops again the camera focuses on the trio of balloons not zooming in on them, and the top right object again continues to move to the upper right of the screen.
The space between the object changes its not an illusion from zooming in on the center object. I made absolutely sure of that before I posted.
So again, can anyone else explain to me the portion of video from 2:45 to 2:55 where the object in the top right portion of the screen is displaying non-balloon type characteristics.edit on 1-12-2010 by Sly1one because: (no reason given)

Are you suggesting that balloons could only be released on the 13th, and could not have also been released on the 15th?

And you really have no doubt about it? They're just balloons in the wind?
I really try to see the balloons, but my good/common sense dont let me.

im pretty sure if i tied 3 white balloons together and released them , depending on wind conditions, it would look very much like the video.
i'm not in denial, im not a sceptic. my eyes receive information and then my brain tells me what it is.
then my brain tells me what it

Yes it is correct.
Again, the video was NOT shot on October 15th. It was shot on October 13th.
Here is an original CBS article from 10/13 that includes parts of the OP's video:

I've read through and taken on board all the reasons why they might be UFOs (which currently appears to be "because I want them to be") and all the reasons why they might be balloons (which currently appears to be "because they are").
I think that, in fairness, there is only one way to reach a conclusive end. Goodness knows we'll never reach one otherwise.
I propose that they are UFOs disguised as balloons.
My proof for this is that:
- we do not know conclusively that they are balloons, therefore they are technically unidentified flying objects, and
- they appear to be balloons. A disguise is something that causes one object to "appear" to be another. As an object cannot be both "unidentified" and "identified as balloons" at the same time, we have a situation where one object (an unidentified one) appears to be another (balloons), therefore they are technically disguised.
