Drudge has some recent vid of this phenom over Texas and NY.

I trust no vid today.

I did however see something in 1980, with four others that defies my ability to explain.

It was close enough to hit with a thrown stone, and it was nothing like anything we had ever seen or conceived of.

Name this UFO

This is a Mark-34 Zergon Light Battle Cruiser.

You can tell because of the triangular exhaust ports. While this is a lightweight Zergon military cruiser, it still can pack a wallop with its Medium Neutrino Emitter, its twin 45000 Megajoule Laser cannons, and it can defend its own with the 1 millimeter Neutron-matter hull and the Crytor Industries "Turkal" MultiLock Damper Field generator.

I'd say, stay away from it.

“Three lights suspended from a balloon behind the tree.”

I agree... It is not from another world.
Reminds me of the guy in Phoenix that tied railroad flares to
about five balloons and released them a few minuets apart.

I am sure the FReeper UFO department will report in at any moment and tell us what galaxy they came from.

That's all the Zergons were wanting. Once they detect submissive urination, they know their point is made, and they leave.

Weird race, those Zergons.

Wait a minute. Are you sure it isn't the 2356 Zergon heavy destroyer. They are often mistaken due to the triangular exhaust ports. But the 2356 does not have slip differential in both front and rear.

Let's bring in an expert witness....

“It all began 75 million years ago with a galactic federation of planets ruled by the evil Lord Xenu, Fearing overcrowding, Xenu rounded up countless aliens from all those planets and had those aliens frozen. The frozen alien bodies were loaded onto Xenu's galactic cruisers, which looked like DC-8s, except with rocket engines. They were sent to earth and dumped into the volcanoes of Hawaii and other volcanoes. They were no longer frozen. They were dead. "The souls of the aliens floated toward the sky," the president continued, explaining that Xenu had built giant "soul catchers" to collect them all and unload them into a brainwashing facility he had built on earth. "The souls were forced to watch days of brainwashing material that tricked them into believing a false reality," the president revealed. "Xenu then released the alien souls that roamed the earth aimlessly in a fog of confusion. At the dawn of man the aliens found bodies they could grab onto. They attached themselves to all mankind, which still to this day causes all our fears, confusions and problems."

Hmmmm. Quix may not agree.
I will wait for his opinion.
I understand that he is the head ufologist for FR.
I bet he will say it is merely a Mark-15, lost from
the ZARgon fleet.
See, I knew that you do not know beans.
You can not even spell ZARGON :P

Typical of aliens from Alpha Centuri. They sneak in at night so they won’t be seen and then turn on some flashing lights. I bet they were trying to pull over an F-16 and give him a ticket for going too slow.

Correction: There is no human pronunciation for the first vowel in Ze/argon. (The vowel is a cross between a lion's roar and a teapot whistling).... therefore, according to the Unabridged Galactica Encyclopedia (Terra edition), 'e' OR 'a' is permissable for the spelling of Zergon*.

*c.f. Unabridged Galactica Encyclopedia (Terra edition), ISBN 17729001890398-1902093-4919882 Volume 1892908300919029 pp 1903001902774774 paragraph 3.

The 2356 was declared obsolete after the Wormstar Wars. The lot of them were sold to the Hh't'ght'hhth Panoi for a single large Michotrock egg. (As you know, these rare eggs are the size of Saturn and can feed an entire starfaring race for a week).

OK OK, you win...I will defer to your expertise as a Zergologist. I really met only one or two, and they were probably Demozergist idiots.

I think it was about this time last year when someone tied some road flairs to some balloons and let them go. Caused quite the stir, and some amazing video that was hard to explain. Until the guy confessed of his prank.

Since that Youtube went viral, the stunt has been duplicated by countless with a devilish sense of humor. Heck if I would have thought about it when I was 14, I may have tried to pull off the same thing.

This one looks to be staying in one spot quite naturally as if hanging from a power line or tree limb, gently blowing back and forth. The lights may be just that, lights or even glow sticks.

Either parachutists with flares or small parachutes with flares. It would be fairly easy to duplicate....the give away is the falling at the beginning...then the hovering and finally they disappear as the flares burn out.

It looks like a very standard smaller model triangle UFO.

Rather close, if not identical to the one Joya and I saw 2-3 years ago.

Perhaps others on the list will recall more info about them.

IIRC, the are purportedly our own military/black ops driven craft.

They can purportedly do all the fantastic speed and maneuvering stunts typical of UFO’s.

I don’t recall anything I’d consider reliable about what they are up to; their assignments etc.

WOULD YOU be willing to give a more robust description?

shape
size
night/day
motions
duration of viewing
sensations
thoughts
feelnigs

Ignore the naysayers. They won’t believe regardless.

Those of us serious about the topic will respect whatever you report.

I don’t see you on the UFO ping list.

Please let Las Vegas Dave and I know if you’d like on.

All that’s a disinformation cover story. The government doesn’t want anyone to realize that the Chinese are racing ahead in such technologies . . .

That one’s just a Chinese copy made in a little village outside of Shanghai.

Some folks think that’s the purpose of the craft . . . to Shanghai derelicts for frightful unmentionable purposes.

I doubt it.

Might be easy to duplicate something for the unobservant and inexperienced to be deluded by.

However, the lights on the corners are quite bright and tend to be reported as quite different from other known lights.

And, IIRC, the measurements are quite exacting in terms of the distances between the lights etc. etc.

Then there’s the hovering, soundlessness and other flight characteristics.
