My deepest apologies for not having been clearer in the beginning.
I made a grave error in not describing how just far away this thing was. This sighting took place about a block from the Capitol Records building near
Hollywood and Vine, and I was situated on a hill.
The object in question was at least two the three miles high, and at least 9 to 11 miles east-north-east of me. That means from Hollywood, it had to
have been above South Pasadena or further.
It had to have been a fairly large object to be seen from that far away. Balloons two feet wide cannot be spotted from eleven miles away…at least
not without a lens the size of the Hubble telescope.
Sorry if this caused any confusion. Except for the palm tree frond, it’s hard to get a frame of reference as to where I was, or how far it was
away. The ONLY reason I noticed it was because at first I thought it was a silver hot air balloon, very far away. But when it appeared to flash a
bit and change shape, I ran and got the camera just for safety.
Two minutes later, the object was still there, and the videos clearly show it changing shape, and colour.
It had to be quite large, because it was very far away. You can’t even see a mylar or LED balloon two to three miles above the south tip of
manhattan island from Central Park….that’s about seven miles. Not with the naked eye, and this was even further away. That is what those
adhering to the “balloon theory” are expecting us to believe.
Anyway…it doesn’t really matter how many people decide to “pile on” balloon theories. Each in their own time to actually watch the linked
videos and do the math, or not. It makes no difference to me.
While I do have a fascination with the skies, this gives me a chance to learn about other humans more than anything else. It’s fascinating so many
would want to visit and post on a site dedicated to unraveling the truth…yet be so untrustworthy and rude to each other. We learn way more by
sharing with each other than trying to outwit or insult each other… I mean, FOUR threads asking people to mellow out? What happened ATS? Lol
Mostly its been a good experience, and thanks to the folks who have asked questions out of the box….from the folks who have suggested vortexes, a
possible TR3B (Edwards AFB is in that direction as the crow flies)….even Venus. I also appreciate someone else at least posting something that
looked similar… That “similar” thing didn’t look like a balloon to me either, nor did it look like what I photographed…but I really
appreciate seeing something different.
My experience is mine, and people can call it a balloon or “FRED” for all I care… It doesn’t change my experience, or what I know happened.
If people don’t believe me…well..lol…
Our lack of belief in what others have experienced is why we don’t more quickly evolve. As humans, we have way more in common with each other than
But I digress.…I thought I’d clarify just how far this thing was. It wasn’t a few hundred feet above me by any means…nor was It a couple of
feet wide. It was at least 9 to 11 miles away, if not further. I’ll say it again… “balloons don’t HOE – VER like that” Nor can they be
seen from that far away at two feet wide. This thing was big.
Thanks again for sharing guys…
Oh..and, if anyone can show me some photos/videos of led ballons filmed from 11 miles away, I’d love to see them. (And if that video catches the
balloon changing to three, then to six, then to five, then back to three, then back to a balloon again, all the better!)
Okay... Let's see how many people post "i think its a balloon too" now.. lol
I'm done. I'm done talking about balloons. Won't be answering any more of those.... Enough with the distractions.
