I was driving through the city of Roswell, New Mexico when I took this blurry photo:


What is that?


There it goes!

As that unidentified object zipped away, I knew the truth was out there.

That night, I revisited the site of the sighting to capture photographic proof of a UFO:


Or was it a hoax? Unraveling this extraterrestrial conspiracy revealed these startling truths:

    * Fact: The UFO was made by me, and renamed to "WooFO".
    * Fact: The WooFO has a 16" circumference, with glow-in-the-dark yarn used for the white dome and yellow lights.
    * Fact: The WooFO was hung from fishing wire over a rural scene created with a diorama kit.
    * Fact: The photo was taken in my backyard.

Shocking but true!

Feeling conspiratorial, I attached LED lights and helium balloons to a second baby-sized WooFO. My girlfriend captured the following video as my relatives and enthusiastic mom observed the Woo.F.O.'s ascent. I provided the theremin soundtrack.


Since the WooFO's release last month on February 13th, there were two possibly related UFO sightings: one in a neighbouring town and the other in nearby Washington state.

But the final truth is that I may never receive a proof-positive email about a found WooFO because not everyone has email access... IN SPACE!
