Cigar-shaped UFO captured in crystal-clear footage hurtling through American sky

A UFO enthusiast has sparked intrigue and debate after sharing video of, what he claims, an Unidentified Flying Object streaking over the Californian sky.

YouTube user Donald Sanders has uploaded a short, 40 second clip of footage taken from what appears to be a home security camera.

The camera seems to point outwards from a front porch with a clear view of the street outside and the sky above.

On Tuesday January 12, 2021, the camera captured a long shape passing overhead – leaving some UFO believers convinced that it was an extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The scene shows the night sky with the glow of light pollution lighting up the left hand side of the screen.

Stop-motion footage shows a long-white object sudden appear from out of the lit area of the night sky – with the image quickly disappearing just above the eye-view above a palm tree.

The object then reappears a couple of seconds later in the same spot before streaking off across the sky and out of view.

The object is a long, cigarette shape with what looks like three lights appearing – one at either end of the shape, and a third in the middle.

Uploading the recording online, Mr Sanders simply captioned the footage as: “Weird UFO”.

A fellow YouTube user dismissed the video, writing: “Maybe it was a shooting star”.

However, Mr Sanders strongly defended his footage, writing: “I SAID IT WAS A UFO! UFO!!! I tell you 9 time!”

A less sceptical user tried to analyse the footage on offer and suggested the UFO had a “tail” what was “coming down not up.”

Expanding on their hypothesis, they continued: “the head is brighter. The tail is… well a tail. Lighter in comparison. It would be vice versa if shooting up. I have an extra large tv screen so it's easy to define.”

California posts the highest number of UFO sightings in the USA – with 10,015 alleged objects reported to date, according to Bay News 9.

However, some dismiss the notion of UFOs and highlight the fact that the West Coast American state is home to aerodynamic and space exploration research facilities.
