Ten days ago, Brain Fains spotted a blue light in the sky in Centreville, VA. As a result, Fains found himself in the spotlight of the media. He received inquiries from all over the world.
At the same time, the Internet rumor-mill started cranking out theories. One included the possibility that the blue light was part of a viral marketing campaign created by the makers of Skyline, in an attempt to promote the alien invasion movie.
Fox 5 received an email from Tony Claridge, who stated that he had information about the UFO. He identified the UFO as a remote-controlled glider plane adorned with LED lights. Fox 5 accompanied Claridge to a field where his glider was flown and videotaped.
Fox 5 took the liberty to contact Fains to view the video from his laptop. He was asked if it was the same thing he saw. Fains responded: “Right there it looks the same. It’s the same color that I saw.”
Fains shouldn’t feel bad for being fooled. According to Claridge, this is not the first time his glider has been reported as a UFO. Watch the video at Fox5.
