In the clip, a blaze of light can be seen moving across the night sky.
The captions say that the footage was captured outside the town of Kippen, Scotland.
But the object appears to have three balls of fire at the front which rotate.
And the blaze does not make any noise, leading to suggestions it is a UFO.
The flare then makes strange movements as it diverts off-course several times.
This is when the captions tell us a loud bang was heard before, suggesting the object was shot at.
As residue appears to fall off the object, it suddenly disappears into thin air.
This clip was shared on YouTube channel UFO Today earlier this month.

“Looks like something small flying away from it to the right, almost like an escape capsule”
And viewers were left divided as to the nature of the blazing object.
Some said it was startling evidence of alien life on Earth.
“Looks like something small flying away from it to the right,” one viewer commented.
“Almost like an escape capsule.”
While another added: “Stephen Hawking warned us.”
But others are not convinced by the proposed evidence of a UFO – and have their own theories.
“Most likely a skydiver with pyrotechnics,” a third said.

And a fourth suggested: “Some dude playing with his drone?”
This is not the first time “alien life” has been caught on camera recently.
A camper captured a UFO “invisible to the naked eye” on his mobile phone.
And an eagle-eyed American football fan thought they saw a UFO at a game.
