What is up with the old story of it always being a balloon?? Rosewell, WHEATHER BALLOON!! Any object in the sky BALLOON!! If you truely believe these ar balloons, I feel sorry for yas... I do... and Im not trying to be mean but common sense should kick into gear right about now and tell you if these were balloons, they would not be swirling around eachother keeping a triangular shape.. something would tell you that EVENTUALLY the balloons would pop after reaching so high in the air.... something would tell you, that they would keep floating up untill they popped, they would be swaying with the wind and going in different directions... Oh come on people.... wake up ! I know denial is an easy route to take, but eventually you will have to face these facts... They are not balloons, and where never balloons.

This is a bit of old news, isn't it? This story has been on going for a while. Check out some searches on Oct 13 and Stanley Fulham.
Balloons? Really? They separate and float. They were in the sky for HOURS. Hours, cats. There's wind enough up there to blow them around all over the place, but then stop so they can float in basically the same area for hours?
Watch the interview with the lady who "released" the "balloons". The story is the balloons float to Chelsea, but somehow stayed there for hours.
But beyond that, how do the balloons float as if tethered, then float apart to hover without moving? Balloons? Really?

If they were balloons tied together, then the strings linking them would eventually get tangled, and the balloons would get closer and closer together. But just the opposite happens. The longer the video runs, the farther apart the "balloons" get.
Anyone who says this is balloons hasn't watched more than the first few seconds of that video.
they more or less stay in the same pattern just further apart
Stanley A. Fulham, tentatively predicts October 13, 2010 as the date for a massive UFO display over the world’s principal cities. According to the author, the aliens will neither land nor communicate on that date; they are aware from eons of experience with other planets in similar conditions their sudden intervention would cause fear and panic

here you go mr , the balloons in new york just before they were released, taken via earth cam
and also a link to the story of why they were released, just for the people that are too ignorant and lazy to look themselves.... www.theepochtimes.com...
edit on 14-10-2010 by Gazrok because: Edited personal attack. Please refrain from name-calling towards members.
First of all, at what time where the balloons released?
Second of all, Your random party helium balloons will rise (being lighter than air) until the pressure inside is so much greater than the pressure outside that the rubber that the balloon is made of can't handle the strain anymore (pressure decreases with altitude). Exact altitude will depend on how strong the rubber is that the balloon is made of. Weak balloons will pop lower down, while strong balloons can rise very high. Atmospheric temperature will also affect maximum height. However, due to winds, some balloons can be pushed hundreds of miles to land nowhere near from where balloons were released. More impressively, the massive, very technical, and well designed weather balloons used by the National Weather Service are designed to reach a minimum altitude of 100,000 feet. They're built in with a lot of strong but extremely light material that is designed to give the buoyant gases plenty of room to expand. But then again, as you showed with the picture, they were not weather balloons, but your "regular" balloons. Balloons don't stand still, and surely, after balloons being released, air would move them far away from where they were released
By knowing the balloons were released near "Gran Via", we can compare how far Chelsea is:
now wouldn't people see the balloons as they're going up? Also certainly by looking at the size of those balloons they would not be visible after about an hour by using just the eyes. Also they certainly would know they were balloons, as stated before, almost EVERYDAY there are balloons released. Witnesses also described how they formed formations, sometimes moving from one place to the other, going down and up, now correct me if I'm wrong but balloons don't do that. Now, at about 9:30 am is when everything started, and lasted until 4:30 pm... How do balloons stay still, hovering and making formations for about 7 hours? Also, since when do balloons disappear and appear? (Source; The video), also if you believe earthcam, how would you explain the weird glowing objects it recorded yesterday night?
Listen, I don't care if you live in your close minded, comfort zone world all the way over there in England, or if you're just trolling, but what I care is what you call me or anyone who believe this, or putting down anyone who does, this is real, it did happen, and disregarding it and assuming dozens if not HUNDREDS of people in NY are idiots for making a fuzz over balloons is even more idiotic. Go back to your little corner and stay there for the sake of this thread.
Anyone who keeps saying they're embarrassed of this thread, or members of this site, posting in the UFOS AND ALIENS section is dumb, don't like it? you can always choose other sections of this site and stay away from the UFOs and Aliens section.

UFO's putting on a display for us would seem the more reasonable explanation, especially considering that whatever this was, supposedly carried on for hours.
