ET / VRIL inspired? Who knows. Gives me a bad feeling.
Or it could be alien.
I thought balloons at first honestly but then the others joined them. If they orbs had rejoined into a small group I would guarantee intelligent operations. Who knows.

Some class of students bought a bunch of balloons for their teachers wedding and they got away. I saw the students on the news back in October.
Watch yourself there. Sheeple only believe what they see at the media trough. Only -1% of the news is real. Eat that every day and you will die of starvation. Mentally speaking of course.
Have a box of Depends on hand. It is just the beginning.

Here's an object I filmed over san diego a few years ago. Very similar to what is seen in the cbs video. I thought perhaps it was a weather balloon but it is hard to say because it's payload travels upside down at certain times. Anyway enjoy.

S&F OP. At first I thought they were just balloons that were released but after looking deeper it appears the balloons would have to be filled with different amounts of gas or different gasses all together, causing the balloons to float in the air at different altitudes. But that made no sense to me. SO they are unidentifiable for me as of now. SO I give them 3 cents that those are LIGHT BEINGS IN THEIR LIGHT MER KA BA.

All the evidence points to this footage being UFO's, simply stating: "Its balloons" along with some cheap pun and or ridicule does not debunk what these things really are.
Although this footage wont make the average close minded person suddenly start believing in UFO's this is just one of very few gems.
And i would go with this footage being secret military technology, didnt that norad guy say something about this happening around mid october, cant quite remember but it makes sense that this was "our" reversed engineered et technology doing some sort of training exercise.
My first thought was CGI, the way the orbs keep that persistant triangle, scales up and down in size, the rotation back and forth, but im pretty sure CBS and those witnesses arent pulling a massive hoax like that.
Balloons attached via "string" doesnt cut it either, if these "balloons" were attached by some sort of rods that can extend then this would be more plausible than string, which is the only other option besides a UFO's.
That can explain the triangle formation and scaling in size but it cannot explain the rotating in one direction then suddenly start rotating the opposite direction.
In my opinion its either a "secret" military tech ufo on some sort of training exercise or real ebe's trying to tell us something.

I would think that yellow balloons would get dimmer with distance due to the at atmosphere. These "balloons" seems to be well-lit and highly visible from that distance. they look like lights.

If they are balloons tied together how the heck do they end up spreading so far apart while keeping a steady triangular formation? I don't know what they are but I have a hard time believing that they are merely balloons.

I'm going to jump in without reading all the pages. I thought at first it was probable that these were indeed balloons tied together but at the 5 min mark they separate. So, for those of you calling balloons either:
A) didn't watch the whole thing
B) aren't using constructive reasoning
Classic ufo IMO. Flagged

I am a balloon expert and I can safely say that those are tethered balloons. The explanation as to why their behaviour changes is that at the start they are buffetting with eachother but later when their tether breaks each balloon can drift evenly on its own in the same air current, so to the observer they appear to be in unison.
In science its called the 'balloonation floation theory' and was discovered in the 16th century by French balloonist Hugo LeTemps.

Clearly it's NOT balloons. Ballons aren't shaped anything like this "UFO". They don't behave exactly like this "UFO".
When I saw this video, the first thing I said to myself was "Well, these certainly aren't balloons. Ballons look NOTHING like these three small oval objects that act as though they are tethered together with something like string when the wind is carrying them along."
Glad you cleared that up, OP. Now how about explaining to us what the REALLY are. Ya know, since they aren't BALLOONS.
