Just one orb isn't it?

That would be the instruments hanging off the balloon.

Watch the second video Phage posted.

That's how it works. The instrument attached to the balloon becomes a fleet or orbs surrounding the mothership. And when you factor in that nasa and the government always hide the truth, when some random guy says it's a weather balloon, it's only fair to say "Oh pish tosh. It's a black-op mission to prevent an infiltrating alien incursion. I know because never a straight answer swamp gas."

Pretty soon, the 50'th person comes in and says "Whoa nice video. I knew something was up there." and it's a slam dunk that anyone who ponders their own reality beyond their copy of "Chariots of the Gods" must be a dopey koolaid drinking sheep. It's a ufo man.

All this talk about weather balloons. So 2012.

Look back to the last page. Phage was diligent enough to track down the station that launched the balloon in question. I made a suggestion...someone could simply email the weather station in question and include a link to the fine journalism we see present in the OP. Ask them yourself if that is there balloon.

Look at it this way - you can be the one that debunks the debunk and confirm this as an anomylous event.

I'd do it myself, but I am sorta guaging this as a Social Experiment at this point...

***Their balloon! Jesus

Since I came late to the party-I emailed the weather station to ask if was their balloon, gave a link to the news station and one to this thread. If I get an answer, I'll post it.
Happy New Year everyone!

After seeing Phage's example videos, I looked back at the scene of the video in the OP where there is an alleged explosion.

I was looking for one detail that we hadn't really seen in the OP video, the puff of smoke from the exploding balloon.

If you look at the "explosion" images, you see the puff of smoke going down, bottom left corner of the image. So yes, it IS a weather balloon exploding. I think the images have been edited to try to darken that spot, since there is a cut in the video, and a sudden black halo around the image, obscuring partly the smoke.

I'm am now amazed that nobody working for that news station could find that out... ...

He put down the phone to call his friend..

Instead of continuing to film and call his buddy later.

It just so happen to blow up while he wasn't filming. How inconvenient..

Sorry if this has been pointed out already, if it has, I agree.

This reminds me of something you might see inside a body, where the big blob is a bacteria, and the little blobs are white blood cells, and the little ones get real close and then kill the bacteria.

With the lack of help from the news team, who act like video evidence is in the woo woo material, and prefer their own faces above the video's content... it's obviously in space.

My worst fear is that there are human bodies in that explosion. Even if the two of them were enemies up there, I want to know who is piloting which vehicle up there. I want to know if I should be happy or sad it got blown up. Obviously it is space sabotage, it could be a space battle.

A hard part is that this might not be 2012-13 technology. It might be others from another time line or zone, from the future or the past. Sorry to be narrow-minded, but it may have been something experimental that did come from the USA or a similar nation. There is a US Space Force.

Well, now you know if the planet gets invaded by these attackers, what their capabilities are with craft that are similar to their own: they can explode their enemies.

I bet you it's those crop circle student pilots, all grown up.

Don't worry. There aren't.

I'll actually get a pretty good chuckle if this news station has to conclude their report and say that this was a weather balloon.
Good call, Phage.

posted on Dec, 31 2012 @ 10:11 PM
Pretty sure that's a Chinese SLBM...definitely not a contrail!

That NK bird still flying? Kinda looks like what I'd imagine a killsat intercept to look like from the ground.

Given Phages' vid, I guess it's a weather baloon, darn it!

You know I can't help but thinking of the supposed UFO footage that Gordon Cooper reported that depicted a rocket/missle being destroyed by an object that moved in, matched the speed of said rocket, then flew around it and zapped it a few times before it exploded, all this captured on film as it was being tracked by a telescope, the footage was confiscated by the usual superiors and never seen again.

It just matches this weather balloon footage so well that I can't help wonder if his memory was mixing up a rocket launch with a weather balloon, I wonder if they could track a rocket back then, and the object matching speed and zapping it with beams of light sound suspiciously like the instrument package swinging around and the light beams simply the tether reflecting sunlight during certain positions around the main balloon before disintegrating as they do (as we now know thanks to the footage posted by Phage).

Am I thinking rationally or simply falling for the official story designed to throw us off? Hmm....

Can they match a ROCKET like that even today??!
No way! They're too small. I mean sure, they can pan out far enough to 'track' a rocket by its exhaust trail, but no way can they track one to visualize it as seen in the OP.

ETA: To clarify, no. Gordon Cooper wasn't an idiot.

Where is your indignation at the 'usual suspects' that have the exact same answer for everything above the earth, being Aliens and coverups?

I don't see it.

You can forgive them for being close minded because they proffer the same desire as you. Can't have any of this logic rational thinking stuff, having an open mind is saying "It's Aliens, or I dunno." Never ever having a logical rational and sane explanation.

Who are these "usual suspects you refer to?
In my mind, they are just as rediculous as everyone else BUT,

There is no agenda being driven by the mass media to PROVE the existance of Alien life.
There is only an agenda in place to mock and ridicule anyone/ any evidence suggesting Alien Life.

To put it in simpler terms,

One side of this battle of the half wits is MUCH more powerful and well organized with unlimited resources and funding at its desposal than the other.

So, I am just trying to bring back SOME balance in my own little way.

I have no agenda other than trying to make a level playing field so that discussion can take place rather than what we see here all to often which is just mocking,ridicule, and just plain ol Assholery, as well as certain people who acknowledge ONLY the evidence which stregthens their case and completely ignore evidence which they have no explanation for.

I have no "desire" other than to promote healthy discussion.

My verdict... guy was lucky enough to capture a meteor breaking up and threw a little glitter on the story, or someone did.

Meteor breaking up? The thing wasn't moving or hardly moving, and an "expert" astrophysicist said it didn't look like any known astronomical event, or in simpler terms, not a natural phenomenon..


Not buying the exploding weather balloon theory either based on the other observations happening in the video, that seems pretty weak also..

You might want to see my second post on page 2 I think?
, I couldn't be bothered editing my first one heh.

I apologized to the video taker since I didn't see any video first time around just the still frame thanks to my own ineptitude. After seeing the video, it most certainly wasn't what I thought it was. Looking at Phages ideas id have to agree with em and go with the perennial weather balloon, albeit an exploding one.

Its got all the hall marks, quakes and walks like a duck... its a duck (usually

Seriously though people, if you are thinking ANYTHING along the lines of rockets or satellites, you aren't acknowledging optics at all. A rocket several thousand feet up is like a dang bullet. Same for most satellites. They literally move thousands of miles per hour. Now imagine being able to hone in on one close enough and fast enough to not only be able to stabilize it, but also be able to distinguish this much smaller object literally doing laps around it.

This thing was low and slow.
There is literally no other explanation, imo

High and slow. Somewhere near 100,000 feet and drifting with the wind which the last mark showed as being 16 knots.

CBS 4 also contacted a Vatican expert who said it could be some sort of light refraction.

Why would they contact the Vatican? Do we really have to make it more blatant how much control they have over us and what we 'know'.

Maybe because the Vatican has an observatory.
Hey! You're still here. Weren't you going on a walkabout? Miss the bus?

They contacted a Vatican 'expert' not the Vatican itself.....Going by the standard of the rest of the reporting, I'd imagine it means they talked to a Catholic.

Too low to be an ICBM or a Satellite.
Again, Low and Slow.
But yeah.

My above post went to hell, but in the videos shown by Phage, when the balloon ruptures, there is a visible puff of gas escaping.

The video in the OP shows the same thing, in the images of the "explosion. The puff of smoke can be seen pointing bottom left.
