Broome police, in Australia’s far north-west, shared CCTV footage of a bizarre looking object in the sky on Twitter – and many were quick to claim it was a UFO.
The video shows a bright object tilted on its side during a thunderstorm on the Saturday night.
It hovers in the sky during the storm before disappearing into the distance just seconds later.
Police captioned it saying: ‘After reviewing CCTV at town beach of last night’s storm, it appears we are not alone.’
Twitter users were quick to react with suggestions, as one speculated: “Amazing looks like ball lightning. How lucky to actually see it first hand”.
Another questioned: “What is that???”
A third said: “How does this optical illusion occur? Refraction, reflection, ionosphere?”
A fourth believed the mysterious object to be from a car’s headlights, posting: “You know it’s just light refraction from the reversing 4WD right?”
