Jellyfish UFO from TMZ's 'UFO Revolution'

Why would they keep the camera fixed on the spot in the water for 17 minutes?


Expecting it to pop back out? I don't really know if that makes sense.
Especially if this is filmed from a drone or aircraft - that going to loiter focused on spot for 17 minutes.

BTW, do we know what this was filmed from?
ie a high up stationary position with the camera rotating, or is the camera that took this moving ie on a plane/drone?

Why does jerry corbel make a whole documentary about this, but not find this stuff first and do any semblance of investigation?

Do we have any clue what the position of the camera was?

1. Where were the cameras
2. What were the cameras (on an airplane? or locked in place?)
3. what is the google maps location of the area in question?
4. what day was it, not just year (for weather study)
5. etc

Everyone online is gonna do all this work and totally debunk this just like his last un-investigated "smoking gun"

The guy makes literally zero effort except to just ham up UFO rhetoric with wild claims like how when the camera was off it started tap dancing.

He's paying the bills with new post.. He can make up any mundane video into conspiracy, UFO, NHI.. Clip... Karma is soon to bite his rear end and it's coming soon.. Both Knapp and Corbell
 
He must have fixed the skew on the footage he originally released. For some reason the cameraman didn't square himself in front of the monitor before filming the greatest evidence in all history of a giant flying jellyfish incursion.
Charitably: ... before exfiltrating at great perceived risk to himself the greatest evidence ...

But still, the fact that the military didn't feel the need to show off that they have the greatest alien-detecting capability in the world implies that the military don't think it's aliens. I seem to remember they were really proud of some of their precision-guided weaponry in Iraq, releasing footage with delays measured in days, I don't see how releasing some otherwise-militarily-uneventful alien footage would be considered a higher risk exfiltration.

I ain't so sure the miltary aren't playing the true believers as much as the true believers are playing the funding bodies, which is weird, as it's their own budget they're harming.

The camera is definitely a Wescam MX series turret, same as was used for the "Mosul Orb" video, and that was filmed from an MC-12 aircraft which were common over Iraq at that time and is known to have the MX-15 fitted as part of its sensor suite. Drones tend not to have Wescam sensors, they tend to have FLIR Systems StarSafire cameras, but admittedly some can have MX camera.

So you think the footage was taken from an aircraft as opposed to a stationary camera?
 
A random collection of Eid balloons might explain the strange shape.
This might just be a curious accident, a random escape of drifting balloons, or a deliberate hoax.
I'm not convinced by my own graphic here, but it doesn't seem entirely impossible.

One thing to add. Mylar is a clear plastic. It's not foil.

Vacuum metallization, also known as thermal evaporation, is the most common PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process used to apply metal alloys under vacuum. Where polyester film is concerned, aluminum is vaporized inside a vacuum chamber and then bonded to a polyester sheet to achieve a uniform metalized layer. This process produces the silver-colored material often incorrectly referred to as "mylar" by consumers, while the appropriate term is "metallized polyester".

Ack-choo-lee "Mylar" is presently a registered trademark of the DuPont Teijin Corporation. There are other clear plastics.

For what it's worth, or not, here is a rough composite I made using half a dozen random frames from a few consecutive seconds of video shown on NewsNation. That was before I saw the higher quality version here, which I'll try to use as soon as I get a chance.

First time writing, reading for years, most open minded an rational blog ever, thanks!

Could someone try to find a wire above the object with filters or special software? I thought maybe it is hanging under a helicopter (what ever it is, maybe rubish, kind of package or scrap metal) and is transported. So thats why it looks like floating and could dive into water (because hellicopter wants something cleaned or killing rats in the bunch of rubish or what ever for)? Out of sight helicopter makes it look like a floating object.
 
The object in question is not making any noticeable movements while it appears to be flying in a straight line. For something with that shape, I'd expect that to not be the case.
 
Just wondering, for the sake of clarity, what in this video tells you that with certainty?

1. I have worked and operated the Wescam MX-15 turret in my job as an engineer working on Airborne Surveillance Systems.
2. The text overlay on the image is a dead giveaway. I recognised it instantly. It matches that of the Mosul Orb and Aguadilla UAP videos, which were recorded using an MX-15. The text is configurable with regard to colour, and various information sections can be turned off to de-clutter the screen for the operator, so they will differ slightly between videos.

Where was it stated that the military sent up an aircraft specifically to surveil this?


What other footage have they issued statements on? Also if this is actual / real footage of balloons would they call that fake? It would still be real footage, is it not? Do they have a responsibility to dismiss every fantastical claim made about any of their leaked footage?

Not that it makes a difference, even if the drone was in the air before it was decided they follow the "balloon", it is still not the call of the drone operator. This is not the call of one person. If we don't know why a drone was sent up to monitor the area of a joints op base then I assume the reason was what is on the camera of the drone.

Also, if we look at the last videos "debunked" here, the pentagon came out to admit they are legit. It was a pretty bad blow to this community, since two already "debunked" videos turned out to be the real thing. I know, a lot of people here still cannot accept it but this is Reality now.

I asked people to guess when the pentagon will come out this time, because it took like 3-4 years the last times. I have a feeling that this video is similar. We will do our boring laps with bird poop and party balloons yet we all can see that this god damn thing is not anything we have seen before. I mean... What kind of birthday parties do you guys make if this reminds you of balloons?

It's a real video, as in it was really taken by a drone operated by the U.S. military. Reading that as the object is really something mysterious/otherworldly is forced at best.

What if its air speed was zero?
That's something I remember from high school physics - a balloon in the wind is being acted on by the same force across the entire surface. It won't rustle due to wind resistance, because there ain't no wind resistance. It seems to be one of those rather obvious things that people have a problem wrapping their head around. They seem to picture it like a balloon being led around on a string, with wind resistance rustling the surface of the balloon.

If you were in the basket on a hot air balloon ride, and the balloon was being pushed along by a steady 20 mph breeze. Would you have to hold on to your hat? You wouldn't feel any wind at all. You're going 20 mph, the balloon is going 20 mph, the wind is going 20 mph. Not the same as riding in a convertable with the top down. The car is getting moved by the engine through the air. The balloon is being moved by the air.

We ran into one of those things in FE with people insisting that if you jump straight up on a skateboard, you will land behind the skateboard as it moves out from underneath you. Not the same problem in physics but a similar psychological thing.

This is supposing a steady wind with no turbulence. With turbulence things would be different. Air currents can make balloons do all sorts of tricks.

In this video there might not be any wind at all. It might be in a dead calm.

What does "legit" mean to you? Likewise "the real thing".

We all agree they're videos. Legit videos, the real thing. Taken by legit pilots, the real thing. Who are legit humans, the real thing. That doesn't make our analysis of the contents of them incorrect.

That's quite an assumption. I would have thought routine security patrols would include a drone.

"Legit" in what sense? Legit in that the source of the video was from US military assets? Legit != Aliens.

Again, define "real thing". Sure, the objects in the videos are, as far as we know, real physical objects. Real != Aliens.

Not my "Reality". Personal, I simply need more scientific evidence devoid of hype, grift, politics, flights of imagination, fantasy and cargo cult.

I think this is not correct. The object/balloon cluster is hardly moving at all, and the apparent movement it displays is almost completely caused by the movement of the MC-12 plane which is necessarily moving forward at a speed above stalling speed, while the camera is tracking backwards to keep the object in shot.

Here's a shot of the object as it passes a limp flag, indicating that there is almost no wind at ground level.

I expect the balloon cluster is barely moving with respect to the ground, and all the movement we see is due to the changing angle between the plane, the object, and the background. This is the parallax effect, which has become a familiar feature of these kinds of videos.
 
...we all can see that this god damn thing is not anything we have seen before. I mean... What kind of birthday parties do you guys make if this reminds you of balloons?
I did deliberately release a bunch of party balloons after a birthday party once, just to observe their behaviour. They did not behave significantly different to this video clip, although I must admit I didn't have any irregular-shaped balloons in the collection. Balloons shaped like crescents, Arabic script, and stars seem to be quite common in countries such as Iraq, and there may be Chinese influences too.

We should not rule out the possibility that this cluster of balloons was deliberately assembled to look mysterious, and released in order to distract the camera operator.
 
Changes in the shape of the object during flight do seem to rule out a smudge on the cover, but someone on Twitter has pointed out that when bird poop splatter is still fresh, it will be semi-liquid and tend to 'creep' down the surface, maybe changing shape as well as position. Seems a fair point, though the stabilised version at #141 above seems to show more than just 'creep'.
 
I really think

Just created an account to talk about this. I really believe nothing is actually moving other than the camera itself.

Notice how when it changes shape, the entire thing gets darker? The change in lighting or IR can make things look different. No denying it looks a bit creepy. I don't think there's poop moving at all.

Pair that with the fact that it's greyscale, greyscale can really mess with your brain and see things.

The lack of blur can be explained by digital zoom artifacts making it look sharper.
 

Thank you; this is brilliant!
The cluster of balloons really does look vaguely humanoid; I can see a head, a torso and a pair of legs, one of which appears to be bent at the knee. There are even a pair of antennae sticking up behind. Fascinating! I wonder if this is a custom-built project, or a commercially-available one?
 
This is a joint operations base. A drone was sent to investigate the balloon. Since the drone followed the object with a camera it is obvious this object was the objective of the drone.


If this is a balloon, like the chinese spyballoon, there is literally no reason not to shoot it down. A balloon at a military base can easily mean someone is trying to spy on them, doesn't it? So? What credible explanation can we find?

A drone was following the foreign object hovering over a base but no kill order was made. Why?

What would happen to a civilian in a similar case, if someone would just wander through the base in your opinion?
 
Tried to stitch some of the video frames to make a panorama image in the hope it might geolocate the facility. Not sure it helps :oops:

I think it is the Balad joint operations base.

https://www.google.com/maps/search/Balad+military+base/@33.5521662,44.2682227,2588m/

Still could not pinpoint the exact buildings. A lot might have changed in the last 5 years.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-sa...ctors-from-iraqi-base-due-to-security-threat/

According to this article, this base saw fighting around 2018 and later people were even evacuated. There are a lot of turks stationed here, which means bayraktar drones, which would explain the HUD in the video.

No other base I found so far is similar to the video apart from this one. I have checked a lot. Feel free to prove me wrong, I am still not convinced this is the exact base.

lol flarkey, this is the exact part of the video I tried to find on google maps. I still could not exactly pinpoint it. But the Balad base has a lot of similar 2x5 housing.
Do you have evidence of this? @flarkey suggests this was taken from a manned aircraft, not a drone. Was the aircraft scrambled to look at the phenomenon, or did it simply catch it by accident?

You can put the FLIR on a number of things, I believe this is a bayraktar or reaper class drone, BR is more likely. I know an F16-18 can carry a similar system but that is not proof that it did.

But still, it does not matter if it is a drone or a jetplane, you can't take either out for a stroll. You need to have an order to follow an object, especially over an airbase. The assumption that someone was just flying around and saw a balloon is borderline trolling. This is a joint operations base ffs.

Apart from the danger of munitions hitting civilians or friendly troops (US or other), maybe miles away, we don't even know if the observing craft (manned or unmanned) was carrying suitable weapons and ammunition. Offhand I don't recall drones of the Predator kind being equipped for air-to-air action.
