July 18, 2016 Strange Pearl-Like Aerial Spheres Captured Over Aldershot, Hants, UK
(Please scroll down the page for more images and analysis)
"Hi, I first saw two long objects in the sky. and could not make out what they were. I went to get my camera and came out side again the two objects had moved apart and in different directions. I can now see that they are spheres but are they balloons?
The pictures were taken in Aldershot 14:40hrs they were at high altitude on the 18/07/2016... and it was the day after the Farnborough air show." end.

Obviously many will jump to conclusions as to what these are, (e.g
party balloons etc), but we do not think that most obvious answer is
necessarily the correct one in this case.
Here at BEAMS we have had a good study of the images provided, and although
we could be wrong, it is suspected that all may not be quite as it seems here.
Looking a bit like "pearl spheres", (as we remarked), and surely far
too round in shape to be bog standard helium-filled decorations, these
things were said to have moved "apart and in different directions"; so, we don't exactly get the overriding impression of white inflatables simply drifting along in the breeze do we?
Another clue, is that similar mystery objects are reported from all
over the world on a fairly regular basis; in some cases, entire
'armadas' of comparable unidentified spheres have been observed in
countries like Mexico, with a few of these 'events' having also been
captured on video; we have even studied genuine amateur video footage
of where a larger
unknown aerial object, (a translucent container, referred to by some as
a "mothership"), is seen to deposit many
small, round, white orbs into the sky; without a word of exaggeration,
it really does appear as if these mysterious objects are
being born in mid air... giving a whole new definition to the term
So, in our humble opinion, the unexplained aerial phenomenon of "spheres" is one that shouldn't be dismissed lightly;
however, whether or not these particular objects captured over
Aldershot on July 18th, 2016 fall into this category or not, still
remains a matter of speculation.
