The video, which was recorded by YouTube user ‘jusdafide’ during an evening stroll through Tulare County, was published to the video sharing site on 2 February.
The mysterious object can be clearly seen hovering in the distance above some trees and buildings, much to the uploader’s confusion whose voice is heard throughout the film.
“That is strange,” he said. “That is so strange. That is really weird, there is, like, no strings or anything on it. It’s just floating, I don’t know what the heck… it’s a perfect circle.”
“22 minutes after the first video I walked closer to the suburbs to see if I could get a closer video of whatever it was. The object floated over the homes of my neighbors and moved a few times but stayed floating over a few houses”, – the author of the video wrote.
“I thought it was a weather balloon at first but no strings were visible and it didn’t move with the wind, as a balloon on a string would. Also, why would a weather balloon or advertisement float over suburban homes? I have no idea what it is”, – he added.
Sure enough, despite not being tied to the ground the object appears to remain entirely motionless.
Could it be a kind of balloon or airship, or is there a different explanation?
