San Diego Sphere — Full Resolution 12 Minute Tape
This is the full 12 minute, original resolution tape of the unidentified sphere encountered above Rick Ybarra's backyard in 2014. Ybarra spoke to us two weeks ago and explained that he used to be an employee with the Department of Defense.
A distinct metallic appearance, three rod-like appendages and stop/start movement define this case. Ybarra estimated it was 4-6 feet in size and 400 feet above the ground. He thought it may be a balloon, but the object did display movement different from prevailing winds, and didn't appear to be following a consistent path, as a balloon would.
Still, the object may display characteristics of something rotating on a tether, though that will probably be up for debate.
