It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Patrick Star from SpongeBob? Maybe? I've heard of a flying squirrel, but this is weird. When I was first told about this footage, I just assumed it was a drone. But the actual footage makes you realize it is either NOT A DRONE... or it is a very ugly drone.

Allegedly filmed on Sunday, August 27th of 2023, in Santa Monica, California, the video shows a star shaped UFO or UAP (for those who are getting with the new terminology of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena). According to an eyewitness, the roughly 20-foot object changed shape while just above the treetops.

By the time they could start recording the object, it had begun moving silently away, keeping its star shape.

To me, the video looks to be a helium balloon, which is what the eyewitness claims they thought at first but dismissed it due to its behavior and size.

Could it be some type of aircraft? Maybe. A bird? Doubtful. Could it be a Balloon from the Dollar Store making its escape? Judging only by the video footage (shown below)... probably. Alien in origin... who knows!
