Cheshire UFO witness says object in video not a balloon

The witness was standing in his kitchen waiting to be picked up by a friend when the object was first noticed on August 25, 2016.

“I noticed a black object floating up in the air,” the witness stated.“Being into UFOs, I quickly grabbed my phone and recorded it. At the time I considered it could be a balloon and I was also quite late already, which is why I didn’t film for any longer. It was only when I got home and zoomed in on the video that I realized what a strange shape it was.”

“I have watched hundreds of thousands of UFO videos and I honestly feel this may be one of the clearest, hardest to dismiss cases ever. It also seemed that the object was changing shape and structure rapidly, between frames. I do not believe this shape matches anything else ever seen or recorded. I also have screenshots that seem to show this object detach part of itself during flight. Please let me know what you think.”
