Canadian UFO videos raise questions over authenticity
"The objected swooped down and then exploded. To the unaided eye the object vanished in a brilliant array of patterns but on camera the object was seen going through a "tunnel", pointed on the leading end as if zooming out of the atmosphere away from the planet," one of the witnesses, Nathan Varney, was quoted by website beforeitsnews.com as saying.
According to the website, numerous photos and videos keep coming from the area. However, critics have branded the pictures a hoax, arguing the images are computer generated.
Some say the website which broke the story is simply trying to boost its popularity.
However, alien theorists have jumped to the defense of the video's creators arguing there are numerous witness statements from around the world describing similar incidents.
