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 Saturday night. Police captioned it saying: ‘After reviewing CCTV at town beach of last night’s storm, it appears we are not alone.

The round illuminated object appears in the corner of the screen as lightning strikes.

It hovers in the sky during the storm before disappearing into the distance just seconds later.
