Not really that clear in my opinion. Mylar party balloons come in all kinds of shapes, and even simple balloons when in a "bunch" can appear to have odd shapes. The thread asks "Does it look familiar?" and yes it reminds me of the secret UFO misinformation training slides for UK/US intelligence agents that Snowden leaked. Apparently intelligence agents get paid to post pictures like this, so if you're doing it for free, why? You could at least ask the CIA if they'll send you a check for posting this. Apparently Nigel Watson seems to think the reason they post images like these is to muddy the UFO waters with garbage and get people to ignore the topic so nobody pays attention when something really interesting is flying around that they don't want people to know about.

Sighting from May 10, 2020, Portland, Oregon. I thought it might be a balloon, but if it is it's certainly odd shaped.
Pretty clear photos.
This is from the title page:
The presentation is called The Art Of Deception and includes three slides showing what appear to be UFOs
Leading UFO expert Nigel Watson has said that skeptics have already dismissed the images as fake
He believes spies are given the images along with guidelines on how to spread misinformation via the internet
Such deception can be used to help coverup more mundane terrestrial activities like testing secret aircraft or military exercises, he said...
‘The first is a black and white picture of a UFO over Redbud, Illinois, taken on 23 April 1950, the second a screenshot of a UFO video by Arturo Robles Gil filmed in Mexico and the third was taken on 01 August 2011 by a holidaymaker at Black Head, Trenarren near St. Austell, Cornwall.
'They have been explained respectively by skeptics as a hub cap thrown in the air, a deflated Mylar balloon and an out-of-focus seagull taking a poo.’
In fact Watson believes the document is really proof of government attempts at mind control and the slides are part of guidelines for spies on how to spread misinformation via the internet.
‘The main evidence for the cover-up of UFO reports and manipulation of UFO beliefs, as revealed by the documents released by Edward Snowden, is contained in a Powerpoint presentation called, The Art Of Deception: Training For A New Generation Of Online Covert Operations.
