It looked like a giant white triangle hovering high up in the sky not moving at all. It definitely wasn't a weather balloon as it didn't budge with the wind at all.
The object could have been a giant book shaped balloon filled with helium made of silver and black Mylar. The hurdles to this possibility are: 1) a very odd shape and orientation for a balloon, 2) object did not appear to flex or otherwise react to the wind, 3) there is no apparent source of a 20,000cf balloon that would only have risen to 400-800 yards near San Luis Reservoir (closest towns are 20 miles east and 20 miles west) 4) object rotated 90 degrees then stopped rather than continuing its rotation from angular momentum, 5) the edges appeared crisp like metal rather than puffy like a Mylar balloon.

Not triangular at all. i didn't even have to full screen it, watch the fishermans video again, when the fake crosshairs and camera info disappears (wtf is that about anyway) and they zoom in, watch the lower left corner of the "thing"
Appears, to me, to be a bunch of balloons, maybe inside some plastic tarp? It appears to me, that one of the balloons shifts in the bottom left corner.
Still nice to have multiple witnesses.
Right around the 40 - 50 second marks, the more i watch, the more small balloons i see shifting in the wind.edit on 2-5-2012 by phishyblankwaters because: (no reason given)
