Footage uploaded onto YouTube features an image of a “triangular-shaped UFO” reportedly travelling through a lightning bolt over the Czech Republic in Central Europe.
The alleged UFO appears to draw energy from the lightning as it moves within it – a feat no manmade aircraft could pull off – according to uploader, Secureteam10.
The uploader claims that the purported alien UFO is using the lightning bolt to harvest energy through an advanced technology.
Another explanation for the bizarre sighting could be that the mysterious triangular-shaped spacecraft is actually traveling through the lightning bolt, alleged narrator Tyler Glockner.
“Today we have an amazing new capture”
Mr Glockner said: “Today we have an amazing new capture. Yet another one of these objects either struck by, caught within or siphoning energy from another one of these lightning bolts snapped just at the right time as it was coming down over the Czech Republic,”
The video has gone viral racking up more than 225,000 YouTube views in less than 24 hours since it was uploaded.
Mr Glockner added that the triangular-shaped spacecraft was initially captured on camera by another UFO hunter and an image was posted on Instagram.
The image was eventually forwarded to Mr Glockner by a friend of the Instagrammer.
The bizarre shape hangs suspended over the Chinese city
As one user commented: “That was awesome!! I’m totally shocked at that! To see a ship within the lighting is crazy!! Can you believe they are totally hidden from us until lightning hits their ship.”
Another user added, “I have a background in electrical and electronics engineering, and there is no reason within the field of electrical physics why there’s a shape in the path of lightning, it just shouldn’t be there!”
But, not all were convinced as another person wrote: “Not aliens. Sorry to burst bubbles, but that photo shows a natural lightning phenomenon.
“The triangular shape is located where the leader from the clouds meets the bolt coming up from the ground. This happens with every lightening strike. It just usually doesn’t show up looking like a triangle.”
Secureteam10 is reportedly known for a host of controversial YouTube posts that document alien findings and UFO sightings.
