If we talk about UFOs, it is inevitable not to mention Josef Allen Hynek, an American astrophysicist, professor and ufologist, who supervised Air Force investigations. Hynek said he downplayed the importance of UFOs and his scientific analysis built the foundation of modern ufology, as well as creating a close encounter classification system for UFO sightings. When devising our own rating system, the renowned astronomer valued sightings that involved multiple witnesses or credible experiences. Over time, technological advances have been incorporated into its qualification.
The so-called credibility scale works on a point-based system. One point is given for sightings with multiple witnesses, another for an expert witness (a pilot, air traffic controller, military or government official). One point is awarded for image evidence and an additional point for video of a moving UFO. Unidentified Flying Objects can usually be explained as experimental aircraft, so extra point is given for UFOs that are seen to fly in an erratic manner. Hynek also valued close encounters, which are sightings of an object less than 150 meters away. Close encounters of the second type, a UFO event in which a physical effect is felt, receives two points. Finally, close encounters of the third type, events where your crew members are seen, earn three points. Now we only have to know how many points the video of a recent UFO sighting in Brazil would receive.
UFO in the form of a jellyfish
A video recorded in Brazil shows an unidentified flying object that bears an uncanny resemblance to a jellyfish. The anomaly was registered in the city of São Paulo last month, but was published on YouTube by the Focus dos Fluxos na Cidade channel last weekend. Unfortunately, apart from the fact that the sighting occurred on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 08:45 local time, there is no additional information about the circumstances in which the encounter was recorded.
The video, which is less than two minutes long, features a mysterious white object flying in the sky near some clouds. Close-ups reveal that it has a jellyfish-like body with a large tail hanging to the sides. It is not clear if the object is moving upwards or if it is in a fixed position in the sky. Another detail is its tail. Although the tentacle-like features appeared thin and flimsy, none of them moved even though the object was suspended in midair.
Since it was posted online, the video has been shared on social media, with some netizens offering various theories about the nature of the strange object. After viewing the images, Scott C. Waring, the popular independent researcher for ET Data Base, declared the object to be a jellyfish-type UFO. According to Waring, clear sightings of jellyfish-like UFOs are rare.
“A jellyfish-shaped craft was recorded in the sky over Brazil last week,” Waring wrote in a blog post by him. “The object has a white half-domed body, long thick jellyfish-like tentacles. This is the best close up of a jellyfish UFO I have ever seen.”
Although the strange object resembles a balloon or even a jellyfish-inspired kite, Waring said the UFO did not move as such. For one thing, its “tentacles” didn’t move in the wind, and it didn’t seem to have a rope attached to it either.
“In the video we see the tentacles, but they don’t move,” Waring continued to explain. “If this had been a balloon, the tentacles would be plastic and blow in the opposite direction of the wind, however long objects just hang there. That means it’s not a balloon. This is the best footage of a jellyfish UFO out there. This is incredible proof that we are not only being visited by aliens, but that the technology they use mimics living creatures.”
And there were many who agreed with the theory suggested by Waring, highlighting that it is an alien ship or, failing that, a previously unidentified flying creature. However, more skeptical observers have offered a different version, arguing that the anomaly is simply a balloon or jellyfish-shaped kite. It is true that the latter theory is plausible, although the height and distance of the mysterious object raise some questions about it.
