It is not that simple. Never is.

Before it was "convincingly identified as a remote controlled
helium balloon toy", which actually is not yet totally
confirmed, a lot of research was done.

First, when I spoke personally with the teenagers' relatives, it
became obvious that the girls filmed something and that the
recording was not a digital manipulation, as firstly and wrongly
assumed by some skeptic "researchers". The girls saw and filmed
something real. The question was: what was that thing? It took a
lot of research to be determined.

Members of the Brazilian UFO Magazine, specially engineer Dr.
Ricardo Varela, veterinarian and Police forensic expert Inajar
Kurowski and Paraguayan computer expert Ronald Maidana, took a
lot of time to rule out several possibilities before they were
narrowed down to a recreation balloon. And eventually it was
found to be a balloon toy.

In the middle of that, a proeminent theory to explain the
footage, meteorological balloons, were ruled down by the very
Meteorology Agency in Brazil and also by the Brazilian National
Institute for Space Research.

It is not yet certain that we are talking about a "remote
controlled" balloon. It could also be other types of balloons,
not remotely controlled. Just for the sake of the good
investigation, this case keeps under analysis.
