The UFO pictured here from a frame grab was filmed by two off-duty police officers near Consett in Country Durham in the north of England. Gary Heseltine, editor of UFO Truth told the Sun newspaper that he believes the sighting to be genuine. Your Out There editor agrees. The object is large enough to be a balloon and it never carried out any maneuver that would suggest that it had an ability to do anything except move with the wind, but it is also very long and for a balloon to have been made rigid and still float without the slightest horizontal motion is not easy to understand. This is a probable UFO, and joins many thousands of cylinder UFO sightings that have taken place over the years.
This object was observed and recorded by Chris Henry, the author of UFOs and Extraterrestrial Visitations in Ancient Cultures. It is becoming more and more common that people who take an active interest in the field end up as direct witnesses. This object is not a drone an unlikely to be a balloon unless very large and especially fabricated to have the unusual shape. It was also stationary.
Actress Rowan Blanchard may have captured an image of a type of UFO in New York that was frequently observed and filmed in that region in the 1980s, and has more recently been photographed in Scotland and San Diego. However, we have been unable to determine if she took the shot from behind a window or if she was outdoors when she did it. If she took it from behind glass, it is more likely to be a reflection that was not noticed at the time she made the shot. However, if she was outdoors, then, unless she was using a camera with a lens defect, the image is unexplained.
Still very much in question, but Linda Moulton Howe will have a special report on this formation on Dreamland this weekend. Much to report!
