Kevin Martin is the designer and developer of the Western Canada UFO Spiral Hoax
What looked like numerous photographs and videos of a ship entering the cosmos was actually put together by not a team, but one person.
Kevin Martin, a Southern California Weatherman has come forward as the hoaxer to what is likely the biggest hoax ever created.
Martin claims he e-mailed the material to TheWeatherSpace.com in an effort to test a theory of his out.
"Who is more gullible, Americans or Europeans?", asked Martin. "A growing number of conspiracy theorists are American, while Europe seems to have their head on straighter to the facts. I decided to test it out with a half done CGI video and photoshop photo stills, sending it to Betty Morgan at TheWeatherSpace.com Space News section."
Martin claims that his theory was correct, Europeans have a better handle on reality than Americans.
Upon further investigation it seems like Martin is a master at marketing, graphics, and even manipulation. TheWeatherSpace.com was fooled and I apologize for that.
From Weatherspace.com... Reporter Fired over Hoax
Seems most of the UFO videos on our site have been hoaxes. I am sorry to break the news to you, but I think it is better people know the truth... Editor BIN
A hoax designed by a Southern California resident made a circle around the internet for a couple of days. The hoax of a UFO zooming out of the solar system at a high rate of speed. Had the video been real it would have been the best footage caught, however it was not.
Betty Morgan was TheWeatherSpace.com's Space News Editor on the story. She printed the story for what looked like an easy campaign for her column.
Kevin Adams, owner of TheWeatherSpace.com, gave her a week notice.
