A UFO was seen over Western Canada on Friday night. It became an internet buzz and one person stepped forward. Kevin Martin, a Southern California resident, told that he was the hoaxer. He even provided a video example on how he could do it. Some say it did not add up. Martin was not too front with some questions we had to ask. Martin has retracted his statement. "I came forward to put this to rest, but I hoaxed that I actually created the hoax", he said. "Something did happen that night. Whether the video is fake or not the photos look convincing. Having your name out there is fun at times, but no more."

I hope this hasn't been posted anywhere, I did use search which had no replies but it's often wrong for me.

Anyway the hoaxer of this Canadian spiral story is now claiming that he in fact did not hoax anything and that he was told to keep quiet. The video is clearly an awful CGI fake but he claims something did happen but will not speak of anything else.

Possible BS but it'll be interesting to see what comes of it. The full story can be found here

EDIT: Okay, it's obvious now the retraction was because of the new video coming to light.

Original comment:
Indeed. Surely this is fairly typical of a hoaxer, just keep continuing your story. It's a bit like celebs who seem to hog the limelight, or more recently Courtney Cox causing a stir for media attention right before her latest release. "Before" ryhmes with the word I'd choose to describe that..."stitch".

So what's the possiblity that this person, who it was mentioned in the other new spiral thread (it's all getting confusing!!) is a known hoaxer just trying to stay in the limelight. Surely if your latest hoax was laid to rest, you'd then choose to find a way to make people talk about it still for a couple more weeks?

When these things happen hundreds if not thousands of people see the same thing. I mean, there's that case where something was seen streaking across the sky in America over various states, and it fell into a ravine. When fire chiefs found it, it was an acorn shaped craft about the size of a small car.

It was seen streaking across the sky by hundreds. The Norway Spiral must have projected out high above the sky to perhaps a few hundred metres, maybe more - perhaps the trail was kilometres wide.

Both events lasted less than a minute but were seen by hundreds.

The original "Canada spiral" shows what an area that would be seen by hundreds of people, not just one conviniently placed cameraperson. If there is "something more to it" it just strikes me as wanting people to look at the same videos but "in a different light". ie: "The camera is in such a great place [for the CGI video shot] because I was told it was going to happen."

So my first impression this is a hoaxer just being a hoaxer and doesn't realise when to shut up. Probably lonely IRL.
