Eden Project UFO revealed as publicity stunt

Videos and pictures of an alleged UFO over Cornwall have turned out to be part of a promotional exercise.
Home to the world's largest indoor rainforest, the Eden Project in Cornwall, England ended up at the center of a rather unexpected mystery this week when social media users started reporting sightings of a strange shape-shifting, swarm-like UFO in the skies over the area.


As it turned out however, the anomalous aerial phenomenon was actually a promotional stunt designed to attract attention to the Eden Project's new "Alien Encounter" exhibit.

"An alien spaceship has crash-landed at Eden, and its inhabitants are stranded here," the website reads. "We're working on a way to communicate with these mysterious life-forms."

"Can you help us de-code their signals and language ?"

Well, Mr. Trump's got my name for next time a vacancy in some important position comes up when the "Defense" Secretary or whoever resigns/is sacked next. I've sent him enough emails, and I got a very polite reply.

Or maybe there is something happening and the best way to disguise it is to say that it was a stunt!

I think of these as good exercises encouraging us to use critical thinking skills, for example empathy or Occam's razor, to better discern truth, lies, vagaries, and opinions.

I am tired of hoaxes... and, jumping dots in the sky. Take a 'steady' movie (Landscape format please with a tripod) that shows (in focus) an object with surface detail with terrestrial objects for speed and size comparison. Oh, don't be drinking or stoned either. Oh and not through a dirty window or windshield. and in the daylight. Oh, leave out the obnoxious background music that immediately identifies you as a pre-teen Photoshoping in Mom's basement. Some reliable witnesses would also help. This is just a start.

Way to go! A believer will always find some excuse and yours is a classic. Well, if one hasn't shown up yet what makes you think the chances are increasing?
