No, YouTube is causing people to think that lens flares are "Planet X."
Usually, they were reported as UFOs. I predict this year will have more threads devoted to meteors and fewer to UFOs.
No-one, absolutely no-one, has claimed that "fireballs" have increased because of YouTube or i-phones. This is entirely a distortion, a deliberate misrepresentation, a strawman, you have created in pursuit of your own agenda. All anyone has said is that an increase in the number of reports about something does not necessarily mean that the number of actual occurrences has increased.
Nobody is talking about Planet X, we should stick to the topic, if you desire to talk about Planet X or Nibiru maybe you should start another thread.
Fireballs have increased, the question is why
Is that your opinion or do you have statistics to back that up?
Yes, I have seen many posters post that youtube or iphones are the "apparent" cause of increased meteor/fireball sightings,
when in fact these sightings have always been reported and talked about on TV, written about in the newspapers, or talked about on the radio - because they used to be sensational events which the media thrives on through which they derive advertising revenue - even without youtube or iphones - however rare these events used to be.
If you are truly curious go through some meteor threads and see for yourself.
