However this "UFO" image is in fact of a mylar party balloon. It comes from this Rense.com page dated 2005:

This object, and the described motion, is a perfect match for a mylar party balloon in the shape of a "1", a common digit in party celebrations.

What do you think Mick, considering those people are close or near your age, are those people scammers? Do they or someone among them know this is a scam since such "UFO" cases with mylar baloons are already debunked before across the internet? Why are those people doing that and who pays for this fraud? And what's next, a wedding lantern?


Or maybe just an alien invasion. :)

I think the use of that image was a mistake. They are just not very good at investigating.

Some coverage from the Express:

Note they copied a type there: "shame" should have been "shape", which I have since corrected.

I saw my own UFO this morning while waiting for my train.

When I first spotted it, it was pretty nearby, so easy to tell what it was, even on a phone photo:

But as it drifted away it became a bit more mysterious:

Last shot, through the train window (with reflections and passing bird)

This balloon was pink, so looked a bit less spaceship-like than the silver ones.
