Exactly. The thing is a fuzzy unresolvable mess. It could
be a jellyfish, thrown up and across a few hundred feet by a conveniently passing

get kicked to death by a duck. It's .. possible..
(if you're wondering about the duck.. my apologies to 'Dr Karl

The thing is, can anyone point me to a few pictures of a thrown jellyfish? That way I could assess the probability of it, versus a "windblown
plastic bag", an "airborne plastic bag", a "plastic bag in midair"..
I invite you to Google those search terms and take a look - you'll come across quite a lot of images of that
phenomena. Sure, only some of
those look anything like the 'thing'.. but then, do many of those images look like .. *each other*?
The point is that the plastic bag theory is very plausible and a relatively common scenario. - I think we've all seen plastic bags blown by the
wind.. But I've NEVER seen a jellyfish in mid air - yet I even worked at a marine science centre and often piloted the boat in a region renowned for
its plentiful (playful) dolphins... Seaweed, yes - even a fish once, but they were only thrown a metre or so at most. It's *very* difficult to
throw something that is wet and slippery (and formless) any major distance.
Having said all that, we do
have indisputable evidence of jellyfish, dolphins, and the dolphin's ability to throw said jellyfish upwards. So
it is way
ahead of any ET suggestion..
