The footage, which was shared on the platform in January 2019, shows a plane flying over the rural areas of North Carolina near Greensboro.

What caught the attention of the videographer was the unidentified object that seemed to be "moving slowly in the sky, a little slower than the planes flying around."

"I could see the random flashing coming from the object for about 10 seconds,” the voiceover in the video said.

The uploader of the clip attempted to film the mysterious airborne object but noted that he was concerned that his camera might not capture it accurately. However, when he reviewed the footage later, he was pleasantly surprised.

As such he shared his findings and reached out to viewers, asking for their thoughts and opinions on what could be seen in the video.

As the anomaly generated conversation, it became clear that he was not the only one to witness this strange phenomenon.

Reports from various parts of the world, including the UK, Brazil, New Jersey, and Texas, indicated that others had also spotted similar objects in the sky.

“Great job catching this. I live in southern California and my family and I have seen objects similar to this over the ocean," one viewer remarked.

"I saw the exact same thing in 2010. It was in the morning and the light from that object was so bright that it looked like the sun was reflecting from it," quipped another. This viewer’s account in particular seemed to be even more fascinating than than the video.

They continued: "After several minutes of signaling or long blinks, the light went out and I could actually see the UFO hovering above me. Then it split in two with what appeared to be a tether still holding on to each end."

“That's incredible,” noted another. “I've seen something similar at night..could never make out the shape but there was a tether hanging from one point I saw several smaller lights come flying back to the end of the tether at different times.. awesome video..thanks for going back and reviewing it so closely.”

These revelations come at a time when claims of UFO sightings seem to be increasing and the US government is paying more attention to them — in fact, the Pentagon launched a website where government and military officials can report such sightings.

The latter is also amidst calls from Congress for the government to open up about what it knows after dubbing the anomalous phenomena a national security threat, per BBC.
