Newest UFO Hot Spot: Medellin, Colombia
Every once in a while reports of unidentified flying objects emerge from the same geographic area, for no apparent reason.
During 2014, Medellin, Colombia, became one of those places. Medellin is the second-largest city in Colombia, located in the central Andes Mountains of South America.
An almond-shaped UFO was pictured moving slowly in the sky over a forest near Medellin on November 16 and uploaded to YouTube on December 5, Marc Dantonio of FX Models told HuffPost in an email.
“I think I know immediately what we are looking at. In my opinion, this is a public relations unmanned helium balloon that is tethered and is 18 feet in diameter. I know the dimensions because I know the balloon itself. Various companies sell and rent them for publicity. In one video, you are told it is flying near Atanasio Girardot Stadium right before a big final matchup soccer game. It stands to reason that flying it for a publicity stunt before a major match makes sense. It is a UFO shape and these have been sold and rented for several years now.”
