Another user wrote: ‘I am actually baffled. This looks legit, as to why – who knows.’
While one viewer is convinced the object was extraterrestrial.
They said: ‘I was very excited and anxious.
‘I felt I had witnessed something very hard to dismiss as a “weather balloon” or some obvious type of aircraft.
‘Shortly after the jet and object left my range of sight I saw three more jets and 1 helicopter going the same direction (in my opinion chasing the UFO).’
