Now what?

Still waiting on you to tell us why it is impossible for these kites to fly near each other.

Looks like small wheels within wheels...like all of those biblical and babylonian descriptions.

I LOVE posts like this!!! It's a UFO video that I have never seen before....also it's one that comes from a time well before computer animation made such hoaxes quite easy to perform......

Unfortunately, I think I've debunked it.....or at least I have a pretty good Idea of what these things are. I think they are rotor kites. Such Kites have been around for a while. Take a look at this link and tell me if this isn't the likely culprit.



You know I was wondering if it was a weather balloon. I had a millionaire uncle that got rich off of great ideas. He once sold weather balloons at ball games. Although he did it earler than this, I wasn't so sure what to think. And I am still up in the air. If I was 100% certain this was man made, I wouldn't have posted this. I just think it was great that I was able to find this footage and in such great shape. It marks a great moment in history, no matter what it is. Seriously... Human reactions to a perceived UFO.


Yes I agree...Great Find...whether it's been debunked or not, I love to see older UFO videos. That's one of the problems with the videos of today....no matter how good they are, you can never be too sure. It's just too darn easy to hoax a UFO video digitally....There was a time when price was an obstical but with todays tech you can darn near make a professional level special FX for dirt cheap...So it's more about just having the talent. Plenty of talented 20-30 somethings out there with too much time on their hands.

As for a Weather Balloon....I don't think they would flip around so much, would they? Perhaps if someone were to place something on them to grab peoples attention, though (say a rotor kite) then that could be the culprit. I think you bring up a good point, though...about using such events like Football Games to get attention for your product. I noticed someone posted some info which may suggest that the rotor kite was not patented till a later date than this game. (not sure about that...perhaps the patent is only for that particular type of kite...I know there are many different styles of rotor kites, and I do believe they've been around for quite a while...I'll have to look into it) Considering that this is a public event.....this would be the perfect place to advertise your new kite! Just as your Uncle advertised his Balloons at such events!

Thanks for posting your thread. Great to see someone go to so much time and effort and waiting for the postman to deliver something you remember from over 30 years ago and avidly wanting to show the world.

When you actually watch the film footage your eyes are drawn to the two UFO's, but on a couple of occasions during the film there are other objects flying about which seem to be moving around a a much greater speed and are hardly visual even when the film is in slow motion mode. I have watched the film a few times now and tried to draw my eyes away from the two objects we are meant to be looking at and try and catch a better glimpse of other objects that I feel are clearly there but too fast to connect to or put a shape to. Is there any other way to try and work out what these other objects look like?

I don't think that they are rotor kites, but they do remind me of my childhood watching the TV show UFO and the way that they used to portray UFO's during flight, silverish and shimmering in the light.

Very interesting, thank you again for your hard work............

Yeah if you were to check then you'd have seen I already addressed that....also if you checked the exact time both were posted, you'd see that they were posted at nearly the same time, being within just a few minutes of each other....

In other words the other poster beat me to it...I was still looking for a good clip, as he or she was in the process of posting theirs....I acknoledge that they beat me as soon as I noticed it, by replying to their post in a freindly way....the only 'Epic Fail' here is you making yourself sound like a smart ass, by posting a rude comment.

Just my humble opinion, of course.....

Internet debut of irrefutably genuine 32 year old footage! Even if it isn't much, it is GENUINE!

First let me tell you that as a Pittsburgher, this event has been stuck in the back of my mind for decades. As it stands right now, it shows unidentified flying objects. I have no clue if they are alien or manmade. So please don't give me a hard time. It is what it is. I just want your scrutiny and my closure on this. If nothing else, this video provides us with some really interesting UFO related commentary. And documented reactions to presumed UFO's on national TV. Video that has been obscured for over 3 decades! And quite interesting to see.

In 1979, I was told of a UFO being seen over 3 Rivers stadium. The man that told me was a neighborhood man that I chatted with sometimes. He told me to not tell a soul! And seemed very concerned that I kept my promise. But I was perplexed as to how a stadium UFO would be a secret. No one ever could provide any additional information. And I remained in the dark for over 30 years.

Recently, I came across a foggy mention of this on Mufon. But the date was nonspecific. And the specific details were wrong concerning location etc. I knew it happened right here in Pittsburgh. This made me set upon an exciting internet journey. This quest was a bit of nostalgia for me. Since I was a witness to the Pittsburgh UFO age in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. A brazenness of UFO's that is unheard of today.

My intensive research paid off. And I was able to find out more information now, than during the actual days following the game! One thing I learned, I had never even previously considered. It was nationally televised. (Duh... It was a football game.) Another was that Mufon possibly never got the footage that they wanted.

I have to admit that the search was a ton of fun! I felt like Indiana Jane searching for the holy grail of UFO's.
First searching for information and then the long obscured and coveted video. Waiting for the video to arrive in the mail was almost too much. I felt like a child at xmas. To make matters worse, I had to search for and buy a second copy of the video. Since the first one was cut to death and of poor quality. And what interesting parts were mostly missing? Hmm... Anyways, I had to wait for the second person to get back from vacation before he could even send the uncut version. Groan…. Then wait yet another week for it to arrive. This was a very long process. And the anticipation was too much! Well, it arrived today while I was at work.

Although it is not the exciting footage I was expecting, it is still something.... It was my first attempt at converting video to .avi. And I am certain that the quality suffered as a result. Then, to make matter worse, I used a top quality program to cut and edit it. Windows Movie Maker... Insert sarcasm here...


For those without video, I couldn't describe it any better than this account I found online. Pretty accurate, but not perfect. But I must say this person has an excellent memory.

XPOSE UFO TRUTH 1970's


I was watching the game on TV in Santa Barbara CA. between the Pittsburg Stealers and Dallas Cowboys in October 1979 from Three Rivers Stadium Pittsburg PA. During a commercial break around the 2 minute warning while Chuck Conners was sales pitching a toy gun, the commercial was cut abruptly and the picture went back to the stadium. The screen showed a metallic disk (10-30 ft.) spinning like a coin (1-2 rev per sec) on a table at height about equal to the top of the stadium. Pat Summerall's excited voice came on saying "We don't know what it is we are showing you...it just appeared in the sky". He repeated several time "I can't believe what I am seeing". Tom Brookshire ,the color man, said "Oh that...that's just an illusion". Summerall disagreed and said "Well if they land, they're gonna say "take me to your leader". The crowd got very quiet...you could hear a pin drop in the place. A penalty was called on a Dallas player because he failed to get into his stance ...was just looking up at the sky. Pittsburg was winning 14 to 3...they had the ball and were running out the clock. The game ended with the camera on the disk till the end. I never heard or read a word about in any media. I didn't want the game to end...I wanted to keep looking at the disk. I felt sad when the picture changed. I was attracted to it some strange way. It changed the way I look at life and the creedance I give our government and media.



So here you are. Highlights from the 10-28-79 Dallas Cowboys @ Pittsburgh Steelers game. I divided it up into 2 sections. And I also included some slow motion views of each time the UFO’s appeared. There could be more, but I have a lot to look at for now. There was some indication that they saw it earlier than the end of the game by a comment made by an announcer.

The first clip is the sudden interruption of the toy gun commercial to show the UFO’s. Then some interesting commentary about the UFO's, by the football announcers. Listen closely to all non-football related discussions. There is also a false start by #68 from Dallas due to the UFO distraction. Followed by a quick shot of the 2 UFO's again.




The second clip is the UFO shown at the end of the game.



The third clip is the first time the UFO’s were shown after the commercial, but in slow motion.



The fourth clip shows the UFO’s in slow motion after the commentary.



And finally, the fifth clip shows the end of the game UFO in slow motion.



This took me a month to get together. Please appretiate my work!

Those commercials bring back memories. Also I do believe that they did catch video of true UFO's and not balloons. For one, we don't know how far up in the air they where, because of the reference we are at looking via the camera. But it was enough for everybody including the players to notice these two objects hovering over the stadium. Two, they where floating moving in sync with each other. And lastly these weren't kid toys to be sure. I grew up in the 70's and trust me there were no toys that you could control that you as a child could put up there and look like that. In fact didn't those two devices/craft look like tops spinning, where one was up enough where you could see the ring around the center and the other looked like it was on it's side spinning and showing the top.

And here's something else that throws all of us including me into the debate about is that an alien craft or not etc. etc., it's the look of it. In our mind we want to see a craft that looks like a craft, you know angles and hard surfaces etc.. So when we see something like this instantly we think that it has to be fake because in the back of our mind it doesn't look like what we think a spacecraft or aircraft would look like. But what if the drive effect of the UFO's distort the look of the craft while it's in a certain operation mode. In fact we don't even know if it was a ship or a few probes, hell the probes maybe look like that while in operation.

I'll give you credit, I think you showed a true UFO and nobody has talked about it since. It almost falls in line with what pilots tell new pilots after they see something like this or stranger. They say you saw your first one but you can't talk about it or you will get your FAA license revoked (them saying your drunk or on drugs/under the influence).

Yeah, thanks for that...........I have read your post and all the other posts. I read all posts before I add anything myself to try and not duplicate what another person has written, as we all know it gets a bit boring when people don't bother to read other people's quotes before adding their own analysis.

Even though that you feel that you have solved the mystery at the football game, I respect that, but I am still not too sure of your findings, so I still have an open mind, the way that I do on all the posts that are added to ATS. So it would be nice if you could respect my views also........

Cheers

People, it is a Sphere with 4 sides spinning above. The Sun hitting it makes it copper, bronze, gold, silver, or any metal platinum.

Why are you sitting on this thread constantly "correcting" everyone who differs from your specific interpretation of the event? Your case and evidence have been presented, now allow the rest of the members to discuss and form their own opinions. You simply cannot force other members to believe what you believe - such activities are not only annoying but also frivilous.

nothing to see here!


Yes, I'm sure there were lots of LED's around in 79.
That was sarcasm, for clarification. No sir, no LED's back them.
I do think they're roto kites though.

Why are you sitting on this thread "telling" everyone what to do? That is far more annoying than someone who wants to share his opinion with people who probably don't even bother to read every reply on the topic.

B.T.W. there is literally NOTHING that can explain this event better than a "roto kite". Unless you want to cop-out and just claim it is a U.F.O. and then speculate what planet it is from for hours on end.

Well its good you people have listened to someone who lived in pgh for 37 yrs 5 months and 11 days.. and has yet to hear this froma local..

Call me crazy but as i stated earlier there is a better chance of findind a B52 bomber in the mon than this being true.

Sorry meant B25 anyway still stands..

And if you wonder why I added the above, is because this is what we like to call folklore, Meaning if UFO'd were seen in pittsburgh I am sure a pittsburgher would know about it.. Just like the above.. It is folklore and as such it is something of the history pf Pgh that I would probably more than likely know about.

Sorry to burst your bubble. Those are UFO's but officially they are UFO kites. I used to get these all the time at Daytona Beach, FL. The second I saw them I knew what they were. Sorry guys.

On topic, I really enjoyed this post OP - the older video is great no matter what. I can see how people can immediately claim kite, but still, really great stuff to watch.
