The UFO community often finds themselves held under a microscope and naysayers are likely to have something to scoff about in April. UFO author Nigel Watson recently uncovered plans for a massive worldwide UFO hoax to take place on April 5, 2014. The event, organized by remote-controlled RC drone operators, was originally intended to launch on April 1 but organizers felt that the date would make the hoax too obvious. The organizers of the event, which they’ve named The Big UFO Project, are asking RC operators around the world to attach LED lights to their aircraft and fly them around at 8:00 PM on April 5. They wrote:
“Anyone who has a multirotor drone or anything that can carry a strip of LED lights and hover is invited to join in this event.”
The goal of the hoax? To “cause a wave of UFO sightings around the world and an apocalypse-like idea in the media.” Thus far they have gotten commitments from participants in the USA, UK, France, South Africa and the Netherlands.
You’ve been warned – even if they change the date in a bid to throw us off…
