Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a visitor from outer space? Is it a neighborhood kidís drone?

The world may never know. But at King Best Mall in Houston earlier this month, the unidentified flying object hovered above the parking lot and stopped a few mall-goers in their tracks.

A security officer named Bernard Godwin videotaped the object and uploaded it to YouTube. This weekend, user Secureteam10 made a breakdown of the footage, examining the objectís structure and movement.


Though the videoís narrator is intrigued by the objectís seeming ability to shape-shift, most of the people in the comments just think it looks like a shiny Mylar balloon.
