Chevron Island local Jack Purcell shot a video of what looks like to be a possible Alien craft - March 2014.


An actual UFO? I don't know. But thought I'd share it anyway.

Ookkaayy.....

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

From the article itself:

She said police were notified about the object but believe it was a radio controlled device.

“Police believe it is a radio controlled device that was flying in the area and not a UFO,” the spokeswoman said.

“If it was anything larger it would have been picked up by the air control radars.” - See more at:

I have to agree and believe its just a version of this

Yes, it's very possible that it was a controlled device. Do you know what elevations these devices can reach? and do they make any sound?

If there is a model that can be flown that high then someone needs to find a candidate.  

I doubt it very much personally.  A radio controlled plane can go high but that is no plane.

Common sense should tell anyone that those models are good for about ten feet.  That's it.

There is no way from the vid to accurately judge/guess the height. And at a distance and a height, you would hear nothing. The people filming it seem so totally calm and unbothered, with the guy even taking time to get his face on cam and smiling.

Now if you were filming a ufo..is that how youd act? Nonchalant and doing selfies?   I think not.

As the police said, if it was bigger than a rc toy the flight radar would have picked it up

Silly man. Does this look like 10 feet high?  Do watch

0:37 "It's pretty high up in the sky as well".  That does not mean 10 feet within the range of a model.

Of course we have to believe the official statements where UFO's are concerned because they have an impeccable record for telling the truth don't they?

The one in Purcells video....seems to have much more elevation to it, it looks to be in the cloud. Seeders example of the controlled device's ( there was a bigger device as well to look at in his video).... didn't seem to go as high... IDK.......it's difficult at times to judge altitude and distance in video's.

What altitude the object in the clip had reached do you think and based on what facts do you measured this?

How high can a RC drone go as per your opinion?
