UFOs Attracted to Springsteen Concert?by Steve Hammons
Posted: 11:45 October 20, 2008
Were there UFOs hovering near the recent Bruce Springsteen concert in Philadelphia?
On a sunny and pleasant 75-degree afternoon Saturday, Oct. 4, thousands gathered for the concert in support of Barack Obama. It was held in the heart of the city near the Ben Franklin Parkway.
One of the people at the concert took video of what appear to be four objects hovering in the sky some distance away and at a fairly low altitude.
Philadelphia television station WPVI-TV, Channel 6 (ABC affiliate), reported on its Web site the following Wednesday, Oct. 8, that Jessia Sechrist, a Philadelphia resident, shot the video and also sent it in to the TV station.
Channel 6 posted the video along with two still photos.
The video seems to show four objects in close proximity to one another, hovering in basically stationary positions, though there is gradual movement by them.
Photographic analysis by experts could be helpful in attempting to identify the objects.
OTHER RECENT SIGHTINGS
Whatever such analysis concludes, it can probably safely be said that the objects could be balloons of some kind or could remain "unidentified."
Photographic analysis experts should be able to determine some characteristics of the objects.
From Jessica of Philadelphia: UFO ( or something weird in the sky) during the Obama rally, springsteen concert.
Last April, dozens of residents in Phoenix, Arizona, saw video on their local TV stations about several unusual red-colored lights hovering above the north side of the city one evening.
A few days later, it was confirmed that a local resident launched road flares attached to large balloons from his backyard.
Of course, Phoenix residents might have been somewhat more attuned to unusual things in the sky. On March 13, 1997, hundreds or possibly thousands of local people claimed they witnessed a huge V-shaped, boomerang-shaped or triangular solid craft cruise slowly and quietly, and at quite a low altitude, directly across the metropolitan Phoenix area, known as the "Valley of the Sun."
Arizona's former governor, Fife Symington, a pilot and former Air Force officer, later stated he also saw a huge solid craft. Symington stated that he did not believe the craft was man-made.
