I Dont know whether to be angry at this guy or not, i applaud him for his obvious creativity but part of me wishes that some sort of rule is put in place to stop people hoaxing like this

basicly this guy peter coffin is an established artist based in america and he has created a ufo with the light's and all the bells and whistle's

The thing actaully looks convincing,it tricked me at first
here is a brief discription of the 'craft'




The overall UFO structure is 7 metres in diameter and manufactured of aluminium for lightness. 3000 bright and individually controllable Color Kinetics LED nodes have been arrayed across the structure and are controlled via a solid state computer. An on board 6 kw generator provides the system power, and the overall UFO can be remotely controlled via SMS messaging.


This footage is of when he released it over a brazilian beach



This video is another place but from the onboard camera interesting video



Pics:















Fair play to the guy for paying his rent in such a innovative way but i cant help wondering what damage this is/could be doing to the whole UFOLOGY subject.

Between people creating homemade UFO'S

'Chinese lanterns'

'convincing CGI'

And plain old goverment alibi issue swamp gas it is becoming increasingly hard tp distinguish between the real and the ever increasing uber fake.

When he realeased it over brazil it had the desired affect and many people mistook it for a genuine UFO and its not hard to see why.

Just makes me wonder how many other UFO's i have seen that may have been something else.

What are your opinions on this?

Personally, I don't have a problem with it and I think it looks awesome. He is not doing any more serious harm to the subject of ufology...well, he is but far less than the internet does to it on an hourly basis.
