Eyewitnesses in San Francisco recorded this amazing footage of what appears to be a Death Star over San Francisco. The footage has grown viral, and viewers all over the world are wondering if it’s a hoax.

Unfortunately, this footage is just the product of some excellently-edited video in honor of San Francisco’s Imperial Fleet Week.

Implications - There's nothing like a publicity stunt to garner buzz for an upcoming event, and this particular stunt brought science fiction to life in the streets of San Francisco. By staging a realistic alien invasion using aircraft and characters from Star Wars, the event continued to generate attention long after Imperial Fleet Week was over.
