Prediction Comes True or How To Self-Fulfill A Prophecy?
[from the YouTube posting]
A newly-published book by a retired NORAD officer predicts October 13, 2010 as the tentative date for a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles to hover for hours over the earth's principal cities. Author says the event to be the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth's atmosphere dangerously approaching a "critical mass.
A NY Post article concerning the matter:
A dozen shiny objects hovering over Chelsea this afternoon sparked speculations of UFOs on the West Side.
Callers began phoning the NYPD and Federal Aviation Administration around 1:30 p.m. with reports of strange, silver objects flying high in the sky over Manhattan, authorities said.
"Some people saw something described as yellow with blue lights surrounding it," said FAA spokesman Jim Peters. "Every once in a while you get phone calls from people who see something they can't explain."
The unusual sightings sent the Twitter community into a flurry with several users saying they had seen people "vaporized" by the unidentified flying objects.
Cops said they received two 911 calls about the phenomenon but were not investigating the matter.
They could not confirm any reports of people being vaporized.
Peters said that if the objects were weather balloons, his agency had no prior notification.
"A weather balloon may not show up on radar. It depends on size and what it's made of," Peters added. "We did a radar scan of area and it did not show up."
Ominously, yesterday there was supposed to be "a massive UFO display over the world's principal cities," according to "Challenges of Change," a book on extraterrestrials written by Retired NORAD Air Force Officer Stanley A. Fulham.
MY TWO CENTS: It looks VERY balloon-like despite what the men-on-the-street say. And if I were dead set upon proving my "prophecy" true, I might cetainly look into releasing some oddly designed balloons over Manhattan on the very day I claimed it would. If we can't blame the former NORAD guy, we can at least blame someone inspired by his words. Who that individual might be will likely remain a mystery for quite some time. Then again? This is the age of tweets, facebook, digital cameras, and a ravenous desire for 15 minutes of infamy.
UPDATE: It looks as though a few balloon clusters were accidently released from a nearby elementary school. The Milestone School in Westchester County had been holding an engagement party for Andrea Carparo when several bundles of white balloons were accidentally released.
Not all are convinced by this explanation, of course. However, if you watch the video closeup in this link, it is extremely obvious that the "object" is actually comprised multiple round objects that, while connected, seem to move independent of one another. Much like a cluster of balloons, I would expect. VIDEO
