Man Captures Video of "Explosion" in Sky

14 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

A Sacramento man scanning the night sky caught a sudden burst of light through his telescope. He recorded that strange sight with his smart phone.

CBS13 shared the video with experts to see if they could solve the mystery.This mysterious little tale begins earlier this week when Good Day Sacramento’s Cody Stark got this message on Facebook: “I have something on video no one has ever seen. I had my telescope out, caught an explosion in space. Wanna see the video?”

Saw this and thought I'd share. Be sure to check out the video included in the article.

That's cool, and not so far from where I live. That would be amazing to see, and it was a lucky catch to get on video. Now to figure out what it is. That would be a 'light refraction' to end all light refraction. I wonder what it really was.

The comments below the video appear to offer the best answer - a bursting weather balloon.

Weather balloon bursting after going too high? OK, certainly could be the case.

Why would it have to be flammable? How could it be, at that altitude?

What do you think happens to every weather balloon as it rises through its region of operation into areas of lower and lower atmospheric pressure?

Ride off to weather balloon heaven on its high horse?

There is an amazing and near-unending list of prosaic events which when misunderstood by viewers can look like a 'UFO'. This ought to be a scary thought to those who insist that the lack of a prosaic explanation is PROOF of a non-ordinary, even extraordinary, stimulus.

Be afraid. It was more than just one more weather balloon popping into smithereens in that video.

It was the 'residue theory', the central tenet of the UFOlogical faith.

I was ready to agree with you until I watched Sky Scanner's video.

They look nothing at all alike. Sky Scanner's video looks like what you would imagine a weather balloon bursting would look like.

The OP's looks like something from the 4th Of July.

Really. I thought they looked nearly exact. To me the explosion is a lot more noticeable in the OP's video but still similar. Both have the sensor bouncing around too.
