Videos of strange and mysterious objects and other phenomena in the sky

Just a thought; what about HBAL Project Loon ?
(Google's stratospheric balloons)

There are these balloons flying across the world at 65.000 feet - could they possibly explain the light phenomenas shown in video clips in the previous entries ? I mean at that great height, it makes them easily appear as diffuse, reflective objects, still able to reflect the sunlight when observed against a twilight sky.

Google’s Project Loon stratospheric internet-beaming balloons


After reading the above article it seems like a doomed project at 10 megabits per second transmission speed and 25 mile radius directly below per balloon. Maybe the main function is to confuse them with real sightings or cosmic events as a distraction.

Thanks XPan, it could be one plausible explanation. However, this project was closed on 21th January 2021, according to Wikipedia, but it remains to be seen how many of these balloons are still up there. And considering the picture of one of these balloon on the Wikipedia page linked above, it does not seem to explain what was the little luminous circle behind what looked like a little cloud.

Moreover, why none of these balloon ever captured on camera before, knowing the first ones were launched in 2013?

I filmed today at 14:53 CET a dark gray (?) spherical object that was flying over my neighborhood.

I was on my terrace (reading High Straneness!!!) and I looked up and thought: „Oh dear, some kid lost a balloon… 😕

But then on a second thought, that „balloon“ was too round, too fast, moving in a too straight line and looked too „solid“, for lack of a better term….

When I realized that I just might be looking at UFO, I was a bit dumbstruck, so when I found my mobile phone and started filming, it was already some distance away.

It was really fast… And I didn’t hear any sound.

I can’t upload the videos here because iPhone format is not supported and usually when I upload to YT, quality is very low.

So here are Mega links of the movies I filmed.

So what do you think?

A balloon, that’s my strong guess.

Was there something locally going on like a maypole festival (which is celebrated today) from which a ballon might have originated?

Quite some years ago by accident I let a ballon loose and watched it go up and was quite fascinating how quickly it didn’t look like a ballon at all anymore if I wouldn’t have known and seen with my own eyes that it is a ballon! Actually, my own eyes started to see it as a UFO very quickly even though I knew it was a ballon! It looked and behaved very „UFO“ like indeed. So that accident was a very educational and enlightening thing to me.

If you get around it, it might be a fun experiment to buy a ballon (or better, several ballons in different colors!) and watch them go up yourself. Depending on the color of the ballon, and things like light and wind conditions, it can look and behave very differently.

To determine the speed of such an object in the sky is very difficult and it is pretty likely that you can miscalculate the actual speed dramatically. In what we see in the video we can’t pin down (or narrow down) the size or distance of the object. Which are two of the primary factors to ascertain speed. The most we can say is that the objects was below the clouds and moved. Which doesn’t help us much either.

Looking at the footage it looks consistent with a ballon to me, including the alleged „fast speed“.

When a ballon reaches a certain height it might encounter air streams that are quite fast (which move the ballon horizontally) and if you don’t know the size or distance of the object, your personal sense of „the speed of the object“ can mislead you greatly.


Edit: More things; Also, on its way up, a ballon likely encounters several different air streams that have different speeds or even different directions of wind speeds?!
So a ballon can likely appear to speed up, slow down, or even change directions rather rapidly (!) as it moves up through the different air layers and wind speeds.

Also, a ballon expands when it goes up in the sky (they get bigger and ever more sphere like until they burst?). So a ballon can even shapeshift quite dramatically, especially if it is in an unusual shape to begin with!

Well, according to quick search, there was Erstkommunion in the city today, but also many people are doing their Maibäume and probably celebrating 1.Mai, so maybe some did lose a balloon 😅

Sorry about the quality of the video and the angle of filming, I don’t really know what to look for and how to film a potential UFOs - this was my first try 😅

In any case, thank you for your analysis! ☺️

I was intrigued by the sound in the background (heard via earphones), like 'metallic organ' type of music together with occasional low frequency buzzing like coming from an airplane passing by in some distance. Then recollected that few years back one telescope experiment recorded so called "music of the telescope", where air currents/flow passing around and about/through the telescope construction made of metallic pieces tied together with wires and cables produced sounds in 'higher frequency range' that could be characterized as a kinda music. Which also sounds like a likely background for that 'metallic organ' sound heard on the video.

On the other side, this sound on the videos and about the telescopes recalled brilliant R. Wright's Echoes from memory. Enjoy :-)

NEVER get tired of Pink Floyd, even better live! Thanks for sharing!

A 3cm piece of metal has crashed through the roof of a Gympie house. As far as I can tell the type of metal hasn't been identified yet though there is speculation that it has fallen off a plane or helicopter. Though there is another idea that it might be a fishing sinker!

Unidentifed metal object falls through Gympie family's roof, narrowly missing baby bouncer

In another article an astrophysicist has commented that he doesn't think that it has come from out of space because if it had it would be more burnt up. Though it probably wouldn't if it had fallen through a dimensional window. It would sure be interesting to see an analysis of the metal.

Dr Jonti Horner, USQ astrophysicist, agreed and said he did not believe the object was astronomical.

“Firstly, if it were space junk it would look a lot more burned and horrible than that, even if it was metal,” he told 7NEWS.

“But I don’t think space junk or a meteorite would have this kind of effect.”

Horner added he thought it was much more likely to be something from an aeroplane.

“If it’s not astronomical, it seems more likely to be something human made,” he said.

What an odd incident if true

How can a tiny piece of metal splitting off an airplane have the power to penetrate a roof ?! (Unless it was a shot like a bullet in very high speed, perhaps ?)

Steve Barone (out in Las Vegas), captures a few interesting sightings!

Tic-Tac UFO Returns
7,530 views May 5, 2022 I shot the first part of this video from my backyard in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, Nevada, on the night of May 4th, 2022. I caught the second part of this video nearly 33 months earlier, on August 10th, 2019. The older video continues to be one of my favorite captures, and I am fortunate to have caught it again. I believe that they could easily be the same object. Thanks to Rick Riccled for his beautiful musical creation called "Across the Realm of the Mind." https://soundcloud.com/riccledy

Lou's latest from Down and Under.

UFO Lou - Fast Walker & Visually Spectacular Flybys Over Melbourne

A Canadian observation via the Travel Channel 2018:


UFO Hovering Over Islamabad - Complete 13 min HD video with Pictures
Jan 26, 2022
This is the longest recorded UFO sighting by a civilian on record, with 13 mins of footage. I saw this when I was landing my drone, it hovered for over 2 hours at this spot when eventually it got dark and I couldn’t see it anymore.

The Webb site UFOCenter.com has recently provided witnesses who have submitted drawings or computer renderings of observations of the 70s.


Current "National UFO Reporting Center State UFO Report" Index: International
Numerous reports provide digital photos of their event.
4/21/22

A long but fascinating read and well documented by insiders of this event.
