Police release eerie footage of UFO-like object hovering in the sky during thunderstorm: 'We are not alone'
The video, which was taken during a thunderstorm, immediately sparked speculations on social media about aliens, including the Broome Police Department themselves
Police officials in Australia released an eerie footage on Monday of a strange bright light, which looked like a UFO, hovering in the sky in one of the most remote parts of the country.
The video, which was taken during a thunderstorm, immediately sparked speculations on social media about aliens, including the Broome Police Department themselves, who indicated that the clip could be of a UFO in the sky.
The clip was recorded by the Western Australia Police who could not help but notice the rather unusual object when they were reviewing a storm that had hit a beach in the town of Broome on Saturday night.

Broome Police Department's official Twitter feed released the footage and wrote in a tweet: "After reviewing CCTV at town beach of last nights storm, it appears we were not alone." The tweet also had a string of UFO emojis.
The video presumably shows the effects of the intense thunderstorm in the background and the effect of lights closer to the camera. However, the bright light shining in the sky does look very similar to a flying saucer, according to the Independent.
After officials posted the clip on both Facebook and Twitter, multiple social media users suggested that it might not be a UFO and that there was a more earthly explanation for the strange sighting.
One Facebook user commented on the video, saying: "Sorry to be the Grinch here and sorry if you all worked this out and I’m in fact the idiot who took too long to work this out, but the car in bottom right reverses out at the same time as the artifact appears. You can see the reflected light in its rear window. This light is then bouncing backward and forwards off the lenses in the camera causing a lens flare."
However, there were others who joked about extraterrestrials being behind the spotting, with one user saying: "Aliens probably ride past Earth and lock their doors."
