Turbulence aside, you make the assumption the balloons
are each separate from the other. It should be assumed they
are connected via strings.

Regarding turbulence, it is unknown what the atmosphere
characteristics were at that location. Perhaps the turbulent
layer was higher than you think or quiescent in that location
or with a granularity that would not affect the balloons as
you propose.

With wind shear, ditto. But add strings.

>Therefore, not balloons.

No, the burden is on the person bringing the video to provide
more data. But if you want to gumshoe it, go ahead. But don't
dump it into the vast pile of "UFO" photos and videos. They are
cheap currency these days (become devalued).

Neutral buoyancy (at altitude) and strings answer these
questions.

>Therefore, these objects remain unidentified, i.e., UFOs.

Fine, whatever sells a video.
