((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be serious-minded. He has both military, and aviation, background. However, his photo strongly suggests to us that the object was a large, helium-filled balloon, in the shape of an oblate spheroid, with other objects suspended below it on some type of cord or cable. However, the witness reports that the cluster suddenly accelerated, and climbed out of site very quickly, which one would not expect for a balloon. PD))
