july 4th 2010 possible hoax attempt

On july 3rd, one man made balloon with flares attatched to bottom was released.

July 4th I saw 7 of the same or similar balloons until they burned out. Someone it seems has gone through a great effort to make and release these balloons on the 4th. And apparently in alot of places around the country. I believe it was an attempt to take away any credibility of the July 4th 2009 reports.

The west pittston, and yatesville Pa reports on july 4th 2010 I witnessed and they were man made balloons. The one closest was only a few hundred yards away, and I saw it burn out with binoculars. That one was small balloons in a net/mesh with weighted orange long burning flares below it. It flew toward yatesville. Was released behind the mountain of west pittston,forty fort. Somewhere I'm guessing around carverton road. I saw the 2009 objects good. I am sure this was planned but not very well,there was no comparison to 2009 objects, and 2010 balloons.

I just needed to tell whoever needs to know.
