The Google Maps satellite map of Magnolia Park, Florida shows a clear view of an unusual object floating above 39th Street in the town.

The shadow on the object is similar to the shadows on the ground, meaning that it is in the atmosphere relatively close to the surface, probably no higher than 20,000 feet.

There are no towers or unusual objects in the area that could account for the formation, which appears to be in rapid vibrational movement. Because of the unusual motion visible on its surface, it is not likely that this is a balloon.

Without knowing its distance from the ground, it is impossible to determine the size of the object, but it would seem to be quite large, even huge.

Calls to individuals living in the area and a search of news sources for 2005 revealed no reports of UFOs over Palm Beach or Magnolia Park this year. The last National UFO Reporting Center report for Palm Beach was in 1999.

This is a confirmed unknown object in the air above a populated area in the United States, recorded sometime in 2005.

Preston Dennett was drawn into the UFO field by the totally unforgettable UFO siege that friends from Topanga Canyon began to share with him in 1986. Without a doubt, this is one of the greatest UFO stories ever told

Give me a picture of a map, I will take a pinball and photoshop it and make it look just like that.

I've placed in bold the biggest BS I've read in a long time. Who is the expert that can determine that the blurriness is caused by vibrational movement? If you don't know what it is, how can you rule out a balloon? What a horse-crap analysis.

What's a more reasonable explanation? That the object was out of the depth of field for the camera's aperture, focal length and shutter speed settings. Try it. Take a camera and focus on something far away, while keeping something close by in the frame. The close by object will be blurry and the blurriness will be even and non-directional.

Now, it may be possible that the blur was caused by motion. Maybe like .0005% chance. Motion blurs are usually directional. This isn't directional, so the writer takes a great leap to suggest that IT STILL IS a motion blur, but it was moving in all directions at once. WHAT?!?!?

Here's a fun tid-bit about vibrational motion: Things vibrate along one or more axis. They don't vibrate in all directions, they vibrate back and forth. So vibration is out.

If this thing was circular and spinning at a high rate of speed it would have looked like it was jsut sitting there. Anyone who plays pool knows that sometimes the only indication that a circular opbect is spinning is to watch its surface features.

The blurriness here is perfectly even and all the way around meaning, it was likely just out of focus. The shadow shows a nice chiroscuro terminator like a half-full moon. Meaning it was round. And it covers an area roughly the size of a house or two - kind of like a hot-air or weather balloon.
