This forum is dedicated to the discussion of historic and contemporary events related to extraterrestrial encounters, UFO sightings, and speculation about related subjects. Discussion topics and follow-up responses in this forum will likely tend to lean in favor of the existence of extraterrestrials and the related conspiracies, scandals, and cover-ups. Members who would seek to refute such theories should be mindful of our tradition of supporting the examination of the extraterrestrial phenomenon on the related conspiracy theories, cover-ups, and scandals. Replies that make fun or otherwise ridicule and demean those posting honest experiences and/or questions will be removed. Members who post such responses repeatedly will be banned.
The Gray Area is a discussion forum that provides a dedicated area for members to post their confessions, disclosures, and related extraordinary personal experiences. Like the highly speculative Skunk Works forum, The Gray Area will tolerate topics that may be unusually hypothetical or unproven for the purpose of vetting the stories of thread-starters by the ATS membership at large.

Most UFO threads are not 100% debunked with evidence beyond a shadow of a doubt, they also aren't proven to be alien or military secret craft 100% either.
Someone's "best guess" isn't debunking, it's a majority opinion. If you're referring to the NYC UFOs ID'd as Chinese Lanterns, then that still is not 100% conclusively debunked yet.
I emailed the girl who claimed she was the one who set off those lanterns, I asked her questions that would put this debate to bed, but she has yet to reply to me. When and if she does, I will post it on that thread.
