Typed "UFO" and "Fresno" into the search, so if this has been posted before I take no responsibility.
It seems that on May 15 of this year, numerous residents of Fresno, California, saw a round, white object in the sky. According to local news station
KMPH, who broadcast a video of the object, it remained relatively motionless for almost four hours. A witness who submitted a report to the Mutual
UFO Network (MUFON) states, "national guard also took a close picture of one of these objects". The FAA allegedly knows nothing about it. Winds were
30 to 70 mph according to the local weatherman.
Here is the MUFON report, which you can find at the organization's web site:
I Went outside and looked almost straight up and saw and filmed first object. after 20 minutes i noticed another object of exact same type and it
was about 10 o clock high hovering. they were white and pretty easy to see. maybe some sort of balloons?
pretty much stationary but one seemed to drift up and down. i was thinking if these were balloons they would have to be controlled some how. national
guard also took a close picture of one of these objects. lost sight behind clouds.
ground winds were 12-20mph and anywhere fron 30-70 mph where objects were at. made fresno local news on fox tv 26, and other news. to many unknown
things and too many details to say. please watch video and search google , ufo fresno recent sightings. no weather balloons were launched at this
And here is the news broadcast:
And some additional video:
A Google search using the terms "fresno ufo" turned up a link to the story on the KMPH web site,
But the link is no longer working it seems.
Personally, the words "nearly four hours" and "30 to 70 mph winds" seem to me to toss a monkey wrench into any balloon-based explanation.
I also wonder what makes this witness think the National Guard took a picture of it. Did he see a helicopter fly up to the thing? Do we assume
he/she is making that part up?
As always, I don't know what to think about this. I'd appreciate any and all opinions, even stupid ones, so don't be shy. Make your

WOW, very interesting.
It looks like it has a glow to it. If it was a parachute going on an updraft, you would think there would be some drift associated with it, 4hr is a
Could be military or the, GASP!!! skeptics beware, THE REAL DEAL!!
It looks as if the object literally stood still for many minutes, if not hours.
This, in my opinion, excludes any type of man-made craft including drones but of course also parachutes and balloons. Any type of craft would have
shown SOME type of movement. I cannot even imagine some military type of object/drone which would simply stand still for hours. To be honest, this is
Oh this is a neat one! Thanks for posting it up girlie. Defying a 30 to 70 mph wind for even a short time means to me that its either tethered to the
ground or its controlled in some way. I'm favoring the latter and further I'll speculate that it just might be some kind of living entity. I've
seen older vids that had the same kind of "organic" feel to them.
- and this is the best #ing footage we can get of this thing?!
- No News crew with a helicoptor can get closer to either get 1) a clearer view 2) it to react / move
- No EMS Life Flight off OR on duty personnel that could find an excuse to their chopper out there?
- No HD camera with a tripod available? Hello, TV Station? Way to Fail at your job, numnuts.
- No additional vantage points (besides the second vid) with clearer footage... after 4 hours!
I'm getting SO sick of wasted opportunities.

Did an image search on Google for "weather balloon". So far this is the closest thing I've found, the "Spaceloon":
These balloons acts as communication links between users who contact them using modems and earth bound network operation centers. The balloons come
down once in 24 hours since the batteries running the devices run out of juice.
looks like the spheres around the edge of the craft were detachable . looked like they had their own individual docking port
I'd like to know what could possibly possess you to say something like that? How can you possibly tell from these low-quality images that there are
detachable "orbs", or how you can even miraculously tell that these "orbs" have their own individual docking ports?

The ridges appear to be some sort of 360 degree propulsion system, pretty neat whatever it is. Does not look like a balloon at all.
360-degree propulsion system? Seriously?
It truly boggles logic when people make such unbelievable and fantastical claims.
Ladies and gentlemen, you're looking at a simple parachute:
Ripples around the perimeter: check.
Hole in the middle: check.
I doubt it was there for four hours. But if it was, it was likely tethered to the ground. That explains why the news station deleted their UFO story.
Because it's not a UFO. Come on, people. This stuff isn't that hard.

BoneZ I think your spot on ..only thing is how would the
parachute stay open and not close in on it's self with the winds they said were present.
Would we see the tether or what ever is securing it to the ground why is it not swaying in the wind.
It def looks like a chute!
