'Shape-shifting' UFO filmed over Belfast

A family in Northern Ireland have filmed a strange object in the skies over the capital this week.
Footage of the object has gone viral since appearing on YouTube a few days ago. According to the video caption, the object, which seems to gradually change shape, was traveling in a westerly direction behind Cavehill which overlooks the city of Belfast.

While being hailed as a typical UFO sighting by some, others, such as the cameraman, believe the object could be something a bit different. Describing it as an "inter-dimensional being", he goes on to claim that the object has "legs" and that not only has he filmed something similar before but that objects like this have been sighted in countries all over the world.

In contrast, some Internet users commenting on the footage have suggested that the object is actually a balloon or kite that appears to be changing shape due to the way the light is reflecting off of its surface, an explanation that would certainly seem to be a lot more plausible.

The original YouTube video can be viewed below.

You start get into the 30% part of ufology If you understand these video, nice beginning.

for me, it kind of works the other way round. I took the vids that were posted by myself or others as examples to illustrate what it MIGHT have been, instead of ET's spaceship. I post stuff as comparison merely, unless is claim "THIS IS THE EXACT OBJECT FILMED IN BELFAST; TURNED OUT TO BE AN INFLATED HORSE-(/Question mark-/man with jetpack-) BALLOON!"

I trust that "skeptics" of the balloon theory in this case do know that thare are helium ballons, some quite large, in the shape of ET-UFO's. Not that this one looks like a "ET-UFO" at all. Some are available online, most are "hand-made" and medium-large, to allow flashing LED's and such if desired. Most of these are made from reflective mylar, to give the illusion of a solid metal skin. One "giveaway" that they are balloons is that they seem to be moved and affected by the wind in a rather chaotic, slow manner, as opposed to ziping around at 3... [More]

Still better to qualify your posts I would have thought. Save's people speculating regarding your intention. Some of them appear to be totally still yet contorting. That's not the action of a balloon.

It wasn't a rebuke JT. Some (skeptics) have a habit of entering unqualified posts on the forum a bit like throwing in 'Molotov Cocktails' as if to kill the enquiry. I was just cautioning against that. That's all.

Oddly shapped ballon? Will we ever truly know?

got it. but i gotta tell you, i am not a "skeptic" in this definition of "denying everything just for the sake of it". I've seen stuff twice in my life that left me without being able to explain WTF it was. But that's all there is to say about it. Just because I wasn't able to explain, doesn't mean it was an alien spaceship. And that's my whole attitude towards the UFO phenomenon. I find it fascinating since i was a boy, but i haven't seen anything so far that would convince me to believe in anything else than that they are mistaken, made up, ... [More]
