The poster of a youtube video showing a black filamentous thing in the air says it shows “either a piece of agricultural netting that has been whipped up by the wind? or something that is possibly related to a phenomenon known as the ‘Sky Critters’?” I’m amazed he didn’t refer to it as a dragon.
He makes the most of the effect by calling it “skyfall” and a “high-strangeness event”, a term usually reserved for something that is weird without an apparent explanation. But this does have a clear explanation as they followed it to the ground.
The object was caught flying overhead on June 28. As usual, it’s something that’s not really supposed to be there but it’s nothing out of the ordinary.
Several reports were made to Surrey Police of a black unidentified flying object above the Hascombe and Bramley area, near Godalming, on Saturday (June 28).
A spokesman said: “One witness even described it as looking similar to two Dementors from Harry Potter flying towards her.”
It eventually crashed to earth and police officers, complete with sniffer dogs, went to the area and located the ‘UFO’.
The mystery floating object turned out to be agricultural netting from a nearby farm commonly used to protect crops from birds or bugs.
The rest of the material was caught in a tree. Of course, those seeing such a thing were surprised and confused. It was out of the ordinary. But are people’s lives so dull that they have to make a horror reference to a piece of black cloth floating in the sky? Go easy on the drama. Chillax, people! These things almost always have a boring explanation.
Earlier in June, people in the U.K. reported hay being whipped up into the sky and falling in clumps.
There are lots of lightweight objects that float around up there – plastic bags, mylar balloons, etc. along with all the natural and man-made craft up there. The sky is full of stuff. What goes up, comes down.
