Watch a 'Tic Tac-Shaped UFO' Just Glide Past SpaceX's Starship

A Twitter user posted a video claiming to have captured a UFO during a SpaceX test. A propellant load testing was conducted with the full Starship stack – just as expected. But according to him a UFO appears out of nowhere, moves erratically in the background. Astral Citizens explains the video.

User Think Tank took to Twitter to claim a UFO is flying in the background during SpaceX’s load testing.

The UFO footage captured what appeared to be a tiny, fast-moving flying object in the background during the full stack propellant load testing on March 19.

The author described this object as the infamous Tic Tac UFO that flew in the background at the SpaceX Starbase.

As you probably guessed, there’s a perfectly logical explanation for why we saw tic tac UFO appear on camera during SpaceX load testing. You see, SpaceX was doing load testing at their launch site in Boca Chica and the entire testing was recorded on video.

“Tic-Tac” ufo filmed on March 19, 2022, before Space X launch — watch the change of direction and acceleration,” said Think Tank, a person who claims to have seen a UFO.

“Yes good job on this. I can help that investigator with a couple clues. First, The boats that SpaceX bought. Look around might wanna consider sticking some microphones in the water. Second landing pad in the water, lastly at night or takeoff review footage frame by frame,” said Fallan, a commenter.

This video, dated March 18th, 2017, shows a flying object. The video was recorded at SpaceX’s Texas testing facility and posted on Twitter by Think Tank.

Conclusion

As you can see, what we have here is simply a drone.

Why are drones so often mistaken for UFOs? Well, it’s because they look like a UFO! Modern drones come in all sizes and shapes, but the basic concept has remained the same for some time now: a few motors that spin propellers to create lift, with some kind of battery and payload attached.

So when one of these devices is moving around in the sky autonomously or being operated as a remote-controlled aircraft, it can look very unusual to observers who haven’t seen such technology before.

In the video above, a snippet has been taken out of context. The snippet is from a longer video that shows a drone pulling a banner.

The purpose of the hoaxer is to make you think something mysterious is going on.

Why do they cut videos?

The question of why hoaxers cut off the most important part of the video is a good one.

The people who make videos like this (the type where you show a video of a UFO, but then cut off the video right as you’re about to see it) are called “hoaxers.”

The reason they do this is that they know that their audience will then have to use their imaginations to fill in what happened at the end.

When you imagine something yourself, it’s much more exciting and engaging than if someone just showed it to you, so they want their audience to imagine what they think happened.

There are a few reasons why hoaxers cut off the most important part of their videos.

The first is that they don’t want you to know they’re lying, and if you can’t see the whole picture, you don’t know whether or not you believe them. That’s what makes you want to read their website or follow them on social media—and it’s how they make money. They capitalize on your confusion and use it to get clicks out of you.

The second reason is that it’s really hard to fake the whole thing.

When someone is using actors in costumes and special effects, it takes a lot of time, effort, and money to get the details right. Usually, people will leave out the part where you can tell what’s real and what’s not because it takes too long to do it properly.

That’s why most hoax videos cut off before they show anything suspicious—they’re hiding what they couldn’t do well enough to pull off convincingly.
