-Video confirmed made by Dept. of Homeland Security
-Video shot from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Bombardier DHC-8Q200
-Video is a black and white infrared recording using a $2,000,000 L3 MX15 EOIR Camera mounted to the craft
-The IR video uses back hot, meaning the blacker something is the hotter, or fuller of energy it is.
-Video was taken April 25, 2013 at 2122 Local/April 26, 2013 0122Z
-The Customs and Border Protection crew thought the aircraft might be a smuggler so they began to follow it, and record an IR video
-Object's speed fluctuates between 70mph - 120mph
-Object's size fluctuates between 3ft - 5.2ft (this could be due to obj shifting angles, or rolling)
-Object was a reddish light over the ocean moving towards the airport. -Pilot confirmed visual contact with the tower personnel and they also confirmed visual on their end.
-As the target approached shore its light went out. The pilot requested monitoring of the craft with the on-board surveillance equipment. The object was not detected by on-board radar but the thermal imaging camera did see it.
-01:23:30 Object flies through a residential area, through buildings and trees in complete darkness, at 70mph and 25ft altitude, leaving the residential area at 16ft altitude.
-01:24:12 Object hits the water at 109mph and slightly slows to a high of 95mph and an average of 82.8mph while underwater
-Object continues to radiate a great deal of heat even when dipping in and out of the water
-01:24:41 In less than 1 second, the object's thermal image doubles in size, its center of heat then becomes bimodal; the object then splits in halves. The process appears similar to mitosis observed during cell division with the splitting of the nucleus, the expansion of the cell, and the final separation of 2 cells.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -BALLOON? No
-BIRD? The researchers note that the object was much too fast to be a bird. The peregrine falcons, which do occasionally visit Puerto Rico, have an avg horizontal speed of 40-56mph and a max of 65-69mph.
-DRONE? The only drone capable of both air and water travel is the Navy's "Flimmer" (fly and swim) with a max air speed of 57mph and 11mph underwater, compared to 120mph air / 95mph water
Conclusion: "There is no explanation for an obj capable of traveling underwater at over 90mph with minimal impact as it enters the water, through the air at 120mph and at low altitudes through a residential area without navigational lights in the darkness of night, and finally to be capable of splitting into 2 separate objects. No bird, no balloon, no aircraft, and no known drone have that capability."
