This is probably the video that Mike is most famous for. It was "The Best evidence Taped on the Fox Network" about UFOs, and Mike won $500 in a UFO photo contest run by UFO magazine.

In the footage, we can see a kind of oblong capsule hovering in the sky.

Is it likely that Mike Hawkins somehow attached a toy to balloons or a kite and staged this event? Is it even possible to change the dates on the camcorder to give the impression that you shot the video several times?

Original news

Many people have seen the clip on the internet however very little is know about it. The more you learn about this sighting the more suspicious it gets. Mike didn't just capture this Star Wars pod on tape once. According to his own tapes he videotaped it atleast three different times! Then he photographed it atleast on one occasion. What luck!
  
Notice the different dates: 5/ 9/93 | 8/12/93 | 9/24/93

The object is in the same location every time Mike Hawkins trains his camera on it. If this object did exist and floats over that area on many occasions you'd expect more people to have seen it.

Isn't it more likely that Mike Hawkins somehow rigged a toy to some balloons or a kite and hoaxed this event? One might even go so far as changing dates on a videocamera to make it appear that you shot footage on multiple occasions?
