The UFO Phenomenon

Strange glowing blue object descends into river in Philadelphia

Blue UFO.
What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Twitter / @528vibes
Witnesses managed to capture the spectacle on film as the mysterious object slowly descended into the water.
Something strange was visible in the skies over Philadelphia earlier this week and nobody is quite sure what it was, where it had come from or who was responsible for putting it there.

Resembling a string of blue lights floating eerily in the heavens, the peculiar object was captured on camera from different angles by a number of bystanders.

Particularly intriguing was footage of the object descending very slowly into the Delaware River waterfront with its blue lights illuminating the water as it approached the surface (see below).

So what exactly could this object be ?
The most likely possibility, based on the available footage, is that this 'UFO' is in fact some sort of drone, possibly with a string of blue LEDs attached to it.

The fact that the lights are hanging down loosely could suggest that the drone suffered from sort of technical issue (or even a collision) which might also explain its long, slow descent.

Exactly who was operating it or why it was equipped with the lights, however, remains unclear.

Movement of the object suggest that it's being lowered from height, probably from a drone.

Not an extraterrestrial craft. That we can rule out reasonably and logically.

Well, hats off to the guys (I'm sure they're all male) who went through the trouble to make something visually weird happen in a public location.

Would have to be a big drone look at the car - Led lights dont weigh much at all, I have a fishing drone that can carry over 3kgs and in led lights that would be well over 10m of led strips. Then you get bigger drones that carry 10+KGS that are pretty common to get that would carry a LED strip that is VERY long.

Now that we have drones I guess we won't have to hang UFOs with fishing lines over telephone wires anymore.
