Researcher Claims UFO's Tentacles are Propulsions Plasma Beams!by Steve Hammons

The "tentacle" appearance of an unidentified flying object (UFO), such as one reported over a wind turbine farm near Conisholme, England, on Jan. 4, 2009, may have been "constantly changing, torque-generating plasma beams" related to an exotic propulsion system.
An experienced American scientific researcher has proposed that the "jellyfish" or "octopus" visual effect that some witnesses have reported in the UK and United States could actually be what is called a "magneto-plasma-dynamic" or "magneto-hydro-dynamic (MHD)" field.
Ray Stanford, a pioneer in studies of UFOs by use of optical and electronic instrument systems said that, "Although some UFO-generated physical phenomena may, through human mind's ever-interpreting 'lens,' look 'organic' (as though what was observed is something alive), that absolutely is not the case."
According to Stanford, this tentacle-like effect is "most often and readily visible when a craft is either slowing down or moving very slowly over an uneven surface."
And, he prefers the term "anomalous aerial objects (AAOs)" to the more common term "UFO."
Stanford says there is often a "pulsing" visual effect associated with some anomalous objects in our skies, but the "jellyfish" appearance is not the object itself.
He has even seen this effect himself and filmed it on several occasions.
Stanford stated, "The 'jellyfish' phenomenon (contracting and expanding at a rate highly reminiscent of a jellyfish pulsating in water) was first filmed (8 mm daylight movie) by me at 12:55 in the noon hour of Sept. 18, 1956."
He recalled, "Three of us there about ˝ mile from 'Giant Rock' [in southern California's Mohave Desert] each saw the phenomenon surrounding the descending craft, until two jets from Edwards Air Force Base chased it away. And even as we watched, we compared it to each other as looking like a jellyfish pulsing in water."
However, Stanford and his associates felt they knew what it was. "Fortunately, we had enough background in science that we realized it was really a pulsating magneto-plasma-dynamic (some use the term 'magneto-hydro-dynamic') field, visible due to light-emitting plasma (and/or, simply ions) contouring the object's magnetic field."
