Mysterious Fireball on New Year’s Eve 2016 – On the eve of the turn of last year, residents gathered outside the house to watch the fireworks parade adorn the Jakarta sky. At the exact time of 24:00, the night sky was bright with the colorful lights of the fireworks. Between the bursts of thousands of fireworks, reddish orbs of light were also seen floating in the sky.
Some people call the light ball Braja, and this phenomenon then fills online media for several days.
Some associate it with Mystic (and politics).
There are also those who deliberately go to certain locations to get the feel of the apparition.
Perhaps detikcom is the most eager media covering the phenomenon. They carried out investigations and crosschecks, even linking the phenomenon to the Mekong river fireballs which I also wrote on this blog. This excitement is no different from the events of the sky trumpet some time ago.
We live in a modern era where some people can have small flying objects called drones. Along with the development of this kind of technology, we will see an increasing number of reports of UFO sightings by the public or the number of photographs of colorful flying objects posted on social media.
Therefore, for the case of the red Mysterious Fireball of light for New Year’s Eve 2016, hold your imagination for a moment. The ball of light is not necessarily an alien craft that decides to join in celebrating New Year’s Eve on earth or a spirit from another dimension who decides to haunt the public on a crowded night.
This article is certainly more about the response to the bombastic news from several media. But one more thing that makes me interested to respond is because I myself witnessed the horrifying Mysterious Fireball of light and even had time to take pictures.
At that time I was in Jakarta. When a large number of fireworks began to decorate the sky, I saw a Mysterious Fireball of red light, flying slowly in the sky. The ball floated for a long time in the sky before it finally began to fade and descend, then disappear.
Here are the photos I took.
In fact, if we see patterns and clues relating to the appearance of the ball of light, we can immediately draw a reasonable conclusion about the identity of the mysterious object. bandar ceme deposit pulsa
Even the media that stirred themselves up with these sightings has given us important clues in the content of the news posted, such as the following detikcom article:
The Story of the Light Ball that Appears Every New Year’s Eve in Sawangan
The phenomenon of the appearance of the light bulb associated with UFOs on the eve of the turn of the new year ago is clearly not scientifically proven. However, in Sawangan, Depok, West Java, there is a story about Mysterious Fireball that always appear every night of the new year. Is that the same event with a ball of light?
Information about Mysterious Fireball in Sawangan was received by AFP from readers who responded to articles related to the appearance of light bulbs in the area of North Jakarta and Serpong. According to some people, there is a unique phenomenon that is always visited by many people in Sawangan, named Braja. detikcom then traced the truth of the story. Until finally met with Udin Herman (52), a man who from birth lived in the village of Pasir Putih, Sawangan, Depok, West Java.
He tells about the routine of the public during New Year’s Eve who are curious about the appearance of braja or fireball at Sawangan. According to Udin, there used to be a reservoir called Setu autumn.
In the 1960s, the reservoir collapsed and the fish scattered. Later, the reservoir area became privately owned and became housing. I wonder what the connection is, after the reservoir is gone, it often appears a strange phenomenon every change of the year. This phenomenon is called braja, or the appearance of fireballs. “The oddity of the braja comes out at 24.00 WIB at night just after the turn of the year BC. But if people are lucky to see it is not just on New Year’s Eve. Sometimes there are those who see a certain time of the day looking like a flying umbrella,” he said.
This phenomenon has spread by word of mouth since 2006. As a result, every night of the turn of the year, many want to see the appearance of braja. “Braja itself has the size of a soccer ball. Everyone can see the object. The color is red, glowing, fire or glowing,” he explained. “In the past it could be 8-9 the number of braja that came out. This year only 4 came out small and far away,” he added.
On the social networking site YouTube many videos that depict Udin’s story. Like for example, the video uploaded by the Onez Lasso account in January 2014. On the sidelines of the new year’s fireworks, there is a kind of red dots that are believed to be braja. You can believe it or not. What is clear, this event makes many people come to Sawangan every New Year’s Eve.
Scientifically, LAPAN Chief Thomas Djamaludin has confirmed that there are no UFOs or possible alien sightings on earth. Various possibilities about the appearance of a red ball of light in the sky could come from flares, aircraft lights, or fireworks.
From the article above, we get two clues.
The first clue is, the light bulb only appears during New Year’s Eve and the second clue is, the phenomenon began to be famous since 2006.
In another detikcom article, we get a testimony from a resident named Maya who said that the orb of light: “….. glows red and fades with the downward motion, then disappears.”
So the third clue is, the object glows red and dims with downward motion, and then disappears.
This witness’s description is exactly like what I witnessed.
After getting three clues, now we set the suspect, outside the alien or spirit plane. The most likely are: Drones that have red lights, Beacon lights, Airplane Lights and Lanterns.
Then we match the instructions we have.
Hint one: Only appears on New Year’s Eve.
Point two: It has been around since 2006.
Hint three: Shine red and fade with downward motion, then disappear.
We can strike the drone because the phenomenon of this light bulb has existed since 2006. In that year the drone was not as popular as it is now.
Beacon lights may be ignored because they do not glide or hang in the air.
Airplane lights can also be ignored because the airplane has flickering lights.
The remaining suspect is the Lantern and I believe this is the Braja we are looking for.
The Lantern profile matches the three characteristics we have. The release of lanterns is only done during special occasions, such as New Year’s Eve, because those who take these lanterns off to the sky usually accompany them with prayers and hopes for the days to come.
Then not long when a lantern is flying, it will run out of fuel, the light will dim, the hot air that causes it to fly will run out and slowly it will come down to earth. When the lights go out in the night sky, it will look like it’s disappearing in the air.
At the Jakarta Night Festival held to welcome the New Year’s Eve 2016, a lantern was released as recorded by the following news agencies:
This tradition seems to have been going on for a long time. The news screenshot below is the release of lanterns for New Year’s Eve 2014.
As the popularity of the ritual of removing lanterns at special times also increased the number of merchants selling lanterns. For example, as seen from one of the following online buying and selling sites.
In the future, it looks like we will see more reports of colorful UFO sightings in the night sky.
The following is an example of releasing lanterns that are very similar to the appearance of a light bulb on New Year’s Eve yesterday.
Update: January 7, 2016
From the comments that come in, many assume that the theory of flares fired from a flare gun makes more sense than a lantern. I myself still hold to the opinion that the ball of light comes from lanterns.
There is a fact that I forgot to give, namely that on New Year’s Eve, I watched the ball of light stay in the air for more than 15 minutes. This fact makes me believe that the ball did not come from flares.
As we can see from the video below, the flare shot has a trajectory, curves, then disappears. Less than one minute.
Flares that are fired have characteristics like bullets that are shot up. Whereas lanterns have characteristics such as blimps.
But I do not need to be too determined to argue again about this. Someone has posted a video on YouTube that seems to be able to end this debate. This video contains a recording of a group of people who flew lanterns on New Year’s Eve.
Here is the video.
