We just witnessed something on one of our skycams here at NBC5 in Dallas Fort Worth. We were watching a grass fire on a camera located in downtown Fort Worth when I saw something that looked like a rocket shooting up into the air. I called the news desk and asked if they were rolling on that particular camera for the fire and they were. I told them I saw something and asked if they could check it out. Sure enough a few minutes later they called me back and told me that something was indeed in the shot.

Several of us looked at it and speculated what it could be. Frankly I have no idea, but a couple of people here think it may be a ballon. This has all happened in just the last 15 minutes, but I have asked that they put it on our website, nbcdfw.com. The title will probably be Ballon Caught on Skycam.

I know people will have questions but there is no better footage than what will be on the website, the camera is facing almost due north. I do not know what it is and I am not presenting it as anything other than unidentified something or another.

Not sure how long it will take them to have it available.

Will be interesting to see what some of you think it could be.

Thank you for sharing this breaking news with ATS!

As of 7:00 your local time I cannot find this video on the website you referenced. Perhaps you can post another message with a link when this video is posted?

Thank you and best regards,
Z

At least we won't be calling it fake.
(Well, some might.)

It is not that I don't believe you, but I just checked the site and nothing like that was posted yet.

I just went through all of their recently uploaded videos and there is not a skycam video of a grass fire.

Anyone find a link to the live skycam?

My apologies I should have waited to post until it was on the site.

It is there now, I must say I think it probably is a balloon. Here is the link.

It looks like a flare.....but I have no clue what the hell that is.

ETA: It appears to be close to the skycam.

Round, pink, and even floats like a child's balloon.

It's a balloon, no question.

That sure was heck trying to get that blasted video to work; but, finally got it.

When I saw it I was in the middle of a newscast. My monitor is much smaller and I swear it looked like a missle launch. You can see at the end of the video what it looked like when I saw it. When you see it up close though, you can tell it is very much in the forground.

looks like a helium filled balloon to me
just rising up up and away!

I vote balloon, it just has that feel like you let go of a balloon and some air resistance pushes it a bit but continues to rise. Although it'd be pretty big.

I vote UFO or a life-form that looks and behaves exactly like a balloon.

Edit to add:

I can't believe the news station put this up on their site. Must be a gimmick or something.

With a monicker like "Fullblast", I'd guess it's just an a**hole's stray ben wah--isn't everything bigger in Texas?

Oh a "ballon"! I'm so sorry, in my haste to be disparagingly witty, I completely overlooked THAT!

Well, indeed it is quite the find. I've only heard stories of these elusive interdimensional twins to what we refer to as "balloons".

Maybe they had that balloon ready for a cover and they missed what you saw. I don't think you would have put it up otherwise, but I don't doubt for one moment they would do something like that. You also said it seems much closer.

I vote BALLOON.

1. Pink
2. Spherical (but not completely)
3. Rubbery latex balloon like albedo/reflectivity
4. Tumbles like a balloon
5. Travels like a helium balloon

BALLOON



Fun vid though.

Hot air probably can make a balloon shoot up like that...There's a fire near by?
