I can possibly believe "mylar balloon" if it weren't for the speed. 27 mph...? Ha! I doubt that.

but either way, it's not ET to me so I don't really care.

Must have been a real windy day to blow the balloon that fast. 😆

Funny that there's no data to make that statement remotely true. Unless of course you have something to prove otherwise that the investigative team didn't have access to.:tu:

At around 3,000 feet (900 meters) above sea level, the average wind speed is around 20-25 knots (23-29 mph).

Staunch believers seem to think everything unexplained in the sky is probably alien in origin, because it's unexplained therefore it must be.

That's their starting point with regards to looking at data.

Let's just say all the conspiracy theories are true & aliens really are flying around in our air space:

the vast majority of unexplained objects will not be alien in origin because one can only assume they are rare.. Anyways, what do I know

I looked around. The largest metallic looking balloon I could find was 18" dia.

None were 76" diameter.

72 inches. Not a mirror surface but it is reflective.

It is interesting to see the defense mechanisms of some when the items reported are explained. There seems to be a curious reaction to truth when it doesn't play into their fantasy of alien visitation.

Yes, mylar balloons. Yes, there are many of them that float all about these days. So many in fact that NASA associates them with the category of "airborne clutter" as one of the categories of UAPs.

In the past five years of hiking in the Pacific Northwest I have come across two shiny Mylar balloons in the middle of remote forests. One said "Happy Birthday" and the other said "Welcome Baby". These things exist.

The thing in the picture is an 18” mylar balloon from the local grocery store?  Really?

A balloon? Lmao.

They probably had to pull straws to decided who'd be spokesperson and keep a straight face during that presentation.

What is your best guess then?  Let me guess, you don't want to presume, but of course it could never be anything earthly right?

Same old nonsense, "we don't know what it is so yes, alienz".

My best guess would not be a mylar balloon, especially with a straight face.

Why is that so hard for you to accept when many, many other reports have proven to be just that? 

The sheer number of balloons that do float about daily is why larger (Mylar included) balloons have been added to the category of "Aerial Clutter" for the NASA categories for UAP reports.

 

Anyway, let's hear your first, best guess.

Sitting here at my desk when the 'experts' say they can never tell?

What's more interesting to me is camera blur on an object moving at 27mph???? 

I can't pick from the sanctioned list:

mylar balloon

weather balloon

jupiter

lens shine

mass hysteria / hallucination

flock of birds

viewers being under the influence

cloud formation

Hmmm.... what to choose... hmmm ?

So what I am reading is you'd rather have a moan about others reasonably explaining items (utilizing logic) than come up with an alternative answer that your willing to defend.

Exactly what I expected from you though. Very "on brand".

Where you and your mind go is on you.

It's interesting the person falling behind the "on brand" balloon response (especially after they say in the video that they cannot say what it is) quotes the person querying it as being "on brand". Those in the asylum never knew they were crazy.
