YouTube has become a video repository for UFO videos, collections of images edited as videos showing inexplicable discoveries on both the Moon, Mars and other places in the solar system.
The video-uploading Social Network has quickly lost control of what is posted on the site as hundreds of thousands of people record and upload videos of strange events they say are proof of aliens and UFOS.
Regrettably, while there may be quite a few videos which are actually the real deal and offer proof of the existence of UFOs, there is a huge amount of fake videos posted on YouTube, most of them being the product of Computer Generated images (CGI).
Now a new video uploaded to YouTube has made headlines around the world after a man from Mexico called Diego Alves uploaded a very peculiar clip on his YouTube channel.
Since then, it has gained much popularity and has been reposted to several other YouTube accounts.
The 'controversial video' seems to show what everyone wants to see: A UFO taking off from the Moon, and shooting into space.
It must be the real deal, right?
Users rushed to comment on the video: “That UFO looks like it's coming from a hole out of the moon. This is a great video.”
And another added: “Something is Coming, I can feel it.”
A third comment claimed: “That is the best UFO footage I have ever seen.
But hold your horses, not all is as it appears.
UFO debunkers quickly spotted that Mr. Aviles' Facebook page was filled with CGI content (very talented he is) and that he was a graphic artist who has made a host of stunning CGI videos.
While the video may be undoubtedly awesome, and while it appears to clearly show a mystery object shooting off from the surface of the moon at great speed, the truth is that the man who uploaded the Video, Diego Aviles is a graphic artist who has made a host of stunning CGI videos.
The video is a product of two parts: the moon filmed from a telescope and a small object that was added afterward making it appear as if it was taking off from the moon, and shooting into outer space.
Earth's moon is a mysterious place. Yes, and there are many things on the surface which are hard to explain. Dr. Robert Jastrow, the first president of NASA’s Commission of Lunar Exploration called the moon “the Rosetta Stone of the planets.” And yes, there are several theories that suggest the moon is both a massive alien base or has numerous bases on its surface whose origin remains a mystery. In July of 1970, two Russian scientists, Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, published an article in the Soviet journal Sputnik called “Is the Moon the Creation of Alien Intelligence?” The theory proposed by the two experts offers arguments that would explain the countless enigmas surrounding the moon and its creation.
The Russian scientific duo proposed the theory that Earth’s Moon is not a natural satellite, but a planetoid that was literally hollowed out eons ago in the far reaches of the universe by super advanced intelligent beings possessing a technology far superior to ours, even today.
Anyhow, while there are numerous interesting theories worth pursuing in terms of Aliens and UFO's, videos like the one uploaded to Mr. Avila's YouTube channel damage serious UFO investigations.
