The UFO turned out to be just a drone deployed by a planetarium. People didn’t realize that’s what it was because it didn’t look like a typical UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) that the military uses for recon and warfare purposes.  IB Times reports:

UFO bloggers and enthusiasts were in a frenzy when they discovered the alleged UFO hovering over a Canadian baseball stadium. Too bad it was an elaborate hoax orchestrated by the H.R. MacMillan Space Center.

On Sept 3, an object that looked like a flying saucer was seen during the sixth inning of a baseball game in Vancouver’s Nat Bailey Stadium. It appeared to be surrounded by bright lights.

The original video of the alleged UFO ran for only 20 seconds, which drew a lot of skepticism from critics. Another skeptic gem is the fact that the witness zoomed out quickly. Usually people zoom in on a UFO, not out from it.

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, according to its own press release, was behind the video. They were able to build a new planetarium with the shape of a drone. The plan was a marketing ploy! They even collaborated with a local advertising agency to stage an “extreme teaser campaign” and get people to look inside of the new building. The point?

The press release also said the goal of the UFO in Canada hoax was to “create a buzz about the new planetarium viewer experience.” The upgrade to the Planetarium Theatre in the Space Centre was worth $500,000.
