BJF: Mystery #79558 is solved, but which answer is right?

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
I would like to announce that the Great Wooded South University's "Public Awareness Think Tank" has identified this UFO. However, and since there is so much "spirited" discussion about this anomaly, I would like to see if the general public can solve this very solvable conundrum by my pointing out a few hints.
A. In the original post, one should consider the use of the word "natural."

B. In Linda's post, one should consider the phrase "rises and floats."

C. In April's post, one should consider the word "fuzzy."

A. Shepperd: I have to quash ongoing Mystery #79558 theories

See original photo with theories and links: A UFO over Green Hills? Mystery#79558

By April Shepperd

It wasn't that very long ago when another mystery vexed your readers. Remember when the "ghost" reflection of a lady wearing a hat was seen in the window of Moore's Pool room? I had written in to explain that the image was just a refraction of the window painting of a tasty hamburger meant to entice hungry passersby into the restaurant.

Once again I have to quash the ongoing theories concerning Mystery#79558. It's not that I don't have faith in the brain trusts of the Great Wooded South University, for I'm sure they think great thoughts.

Metcalfe Co. HS Principal Kelly Bell announces retirement

It will be difficult to find someone with Mrs. Bell's care and passion for this school. She knew every student by name and usually knew something about them and their family. That is hard to replace. What she has meant to our community is beyond measure. - SUPT. BENNY LILE

JD Gee: Mystery #79558 - Channels Dr. Neat for answer

It's an airborne jellyfish

JD Gee writes:
It's my humble (but not too humble) opinion that BJF managed to capture an image of an incredibly rare creature, the airborne jellyfish, also known as the jellybird. Even the most knowledgeable cyrptozoologists have long believed this rara avis to be as extinct as the democratic party in Adair County. I'm sure Dr. Neat would tell you the jellybird eats only jumping ticks, so there's that. JD Gee

Mike Watson: Updates name of street. It's GASTON

Comments re photo 79628 Rainbow arcs over cell tower at Blue Raider Drive 5 Jul 2018
Mike Watson writes:
Gaskin or Gaston? --Mike Watson
Thank you. Thank you. - Faulty synapse. I do know better. It's Gaston, of course. The error is corrected. If it had not been, we might have inadvertently created a name change, like the still misnamed "Pickny" Street of Burkesville Street, or the renaming of Pettit's Fork. These things do matter. - EW

BJF - Comment and Hint on Mystery Photo #79558

Comment on helium balloon theory with hint which may be a harder mystery to figure out than the original mystery!!! In reply to: Comments re article 98243 Mystery 79558 UFO could be a helium balloon maybe

Billy Joe Fudge writes on :
Linda, that is a very imaginative postulation. Your guess contains a one word "hint" when combined with a one word "hint" in the original cutline, folks should be better able to focus their investigations. No, "focus" is not a third clue! --
