Hey Voyger2 - good eye! Hm. It's hard to say on this one because it is through the windshield, so there could be a lot of dirt or other stuff on the window. It is certainly interesting - if it was the UO, then it would establish it had been there previously and was moving extremely fast.

This whole thread has been tough to go through, honestly. At this point, who knows what it is? I certainly don't!

Anyway - thanks for sharing it!

peace,
AB

In my opinion.
What would be really funny is if it turns out to be bird shaped balloon....still in its bag

It could be a possible reflection of the sun, from her sunglasses on the side view mirror, which was magnified by the dried-up goat slobber on the mirror; that reflected the image onto the lens of the camera.

I'm hesitant to believe that the object shot in Crete (if real), is only a bird, a trash-bag or mylar balloon. This does not mean that I factor out those possibilities. As an amateur researcher/ufologist for over 30 years, I would be stupid to do so without more information. And I guess I'll add that there are still too many unknowns (for me) to be able to say that "it is this or that" confidently in a post. We all have a belief system and many are compelled to share their armchair ideas and theories on the Greek object. The following is not one of them.. lol.

Since I was privy to the original photograph, I decided to let my pareidolia move me to create what "I think I see" in the photo. For those that don't know what "Pareidolia" is, every time you look up in the sky and see bunnies or a snowman in the clouds, well then there you go.... pareidolia. When you see faces on the Moon.... pareidolia.

Please do not confuse analysis with "pareidolia", the below isn't intended to mean anything more other than being a creative expression or outlet, and I'll apologize upfront for my amateurish digital drawing abilities (I suck and know it). The creation is not to scale, has plenty of liberties taken in the embellishment department, the canopy is different, my lines of symmetry and balance are off (and feel free to insert other mistakes here).

But when I look at the object, I do not see the Saucer-shaped UFO that Jeff Ritzman sees, I see a Horseshoe-shaped craft (or drone) with an exotic propulsion system. And yes were only able to see one side of the "U-Shape".

Welcome to my Pareidolia...

I'm liking your Pareidolia Johnny , seems more plausible to me than goat spit or contortionist sea birds

Okay, I vote for this one. Then it zoomed away into another dimension before they got another picture of it. Time travelers again!

wHAT IS THERE to discuss so much about it? Also is the 2nd pic up there a concept of how it would look if clear picture or is it the actual picture from which this HOAX picture (the blurry one) was posted???

I think we're getting REALLY close here. Its an "outer space jet ski"...



Sort of like the "space scooters" that Steve Zodiac and Doctor Venus rode in the Gerry Anderson classic TV show, "Fireball XL5"...



And here is an image of a toy version of the scooter that Steve Zodiac rode. (Steve Zodiac and "Zoonie, the Lazoon")

Thats exactly what i saw from the first time i looked at the UO picture. I never saw a dome or a circular base, i saw rectangle shape base with a curved shaped object only on the back of the rectangle.

Thats similar to what I posted elsewhere...
"After three days of wading through the ATS thread, I've come to the conclusion that it is a bird holding a mylar balloon, wrapped in a plastic bag, covered with goat sweat (seen through a chipped window, even though the window is clearly down)... "...

I'm going to disagree with that. The part about the string was kind of sketchy and has already been dealt with (banding), but as for this -

And according to www.crete.tournet.gr... there were 22 events on Crete that day (Saturday, August, 19). Some, such as a outdoor festival for children at a newly opened dinosaur exhibit, is likely to have balloons.


Notice how he didn't link you to the actual information
www.crete.tournet.gr...

He also didn't mention that the 22 events on that day were ongoing events, some have been going on for months. I don't think an art exhibition at a museum is going to be stocked full of balloons every single day for 10 months straight. Sure some of these events might have balloons, they might have even had them on August 19th, but please tell me how a balloon floats 28-169 miles across the island of Crete at ground level.

True but one has to remember that this road is a very popular road among tourists. A search on youtube for "road to balos beach" yields plenty of hits. I can certainly imagine a family travelling to/from Balos beach and losing a ballon or throwing a plastic bag out the window. There are no practical reasons why this could not have happened.

And yes there are blue plastic bags on Crete, here is a photo showing one on Falassarna beach.



The caption to this photo reads



My first trip to Crete was in august 2003. Full of emotions, surprises and heavenly beaches where we could be almost alone - that's how this island met me... In august 2006 I have visited Crete island one more time looking forward to find the same paradise... Just 3 years passed and I have discovered another Balos beach, Chryssi island, Falassarna beach... wild and clean just a few years ago, today it totally took by tourists and transformed into the dump of plastic bottles and bags.... Tears were close seeing all this.... PLEASE FIND JUST A BIT OF RESPECT! SAVE GREEK PARADISE!!!!! Source

Hey cripmeister,

I posted a video of the road to Balos a bunch of pages back, www.abovetopsecret.com...

It looks very clean to me. Also the photo was taken on the road, not at the beach, where I don't doubt that there is some litter scattered about.

As for someone throwing a bag out their car window, that's possible, but where are they?
There's no one driving in front of them according to the additional photo's Ritzmann posted here www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's a bird. It probably dropped down in elevation into view of the camera quickly. They sometimes arch up their wings to lower themselves down to try to pick up my lunch down by Lake superior. They can be pests, if you feed one they start swarming you. They have some gulls with dark wings near Crete.

Who knows. If this is a plastic bag it could have been laying around for hours even days, maybe caught on a rock, before the wind picked it up.

Since I'm still really hesitant on the bird theory, perhaps you folks can help enlighten me a tad.

Could someone (anyone), link up a photograph (has to be a linkable source) of a darkish or blue bird with an extreme luminous reflection off of it? The photo can not be manipulated or filtered (thank you).

The reason why I ask is that the reflective glow on the Crete object in question is extremely bright and I can't personally recall seeing or taking a photo or video of any bird that would match such brightness?

I'd certainly appreciate it and will thank all in advance.


Johnny
