Brief Narrative

Here's another good one for you from the diligent efforts of Don Andersberg (pseudonym).  The witness, Don, has a "hobby" of looking for UFOs that he can video-record from his backyard. He's been quite successful over the last few years. We will be featuring more of his UFOs in the coming months.

Lately he's been using a Nikon Coolpix P510, which he picked because it has a zoom lens equivalent to about a 20 power telescope. The UFOs that he spots visually first are exceedingly small—Don has keen eyes—then he immediately tries to capture images of the UFOs as he zooms in from wide angle to extreme telephoto. (He has turned off digital zoom at my request so that I can better analyze the UFOs.)

Green Snake Balloon With Traveling Lights?

This one is the strangest so far that I've documented for Don. I don't see how this one can be anything but truly anomalous, but you never know. Maybe there's an "evil genius" prankster out there who has concocted a DIY balloon contraption that looks like a green snake writhing in the air. But wait . . . there's more. The writhing green snake has bright lights on it at different points. But wait . . . there's more. The lights appear and disappear at random points along the green snake and sometimes merge and then disappear. But wait . . . there's more. The lights travel up and down the length of the UFO and they flare up and reduce intensity. And when they merge, they seem to get bigger than two individual ones combined.

Hmmm. Just what is this thing that looks and acts a bit like a living entity. Hmmm. Where have we heard that before? Oh, Mexico. Maybe this is an Oregon EBANI UFO.  What is that? Learn more by reading the whole report. As always, be sure to download the full case study and read it thoroughly before committing to judgment about just what this thing might have been.
