WEIRD footage has emerged that appears to show a strange flashing “UFO” above Paris.
It apparently captures a bizarre cigar-shaped object radiating beams of light – and experts are linking the sighting to others previously seen over China and Australia.
Mystery surrounds what the object is and until an explanation is given it remains an unidentified flying object (UFO).
The unverified footage was posted on YouTube by Secureteam10, a well-known conspiracy channel that posts supposed UFO sightings.
In the video, Tyler Glockner, who runs Secureteam10 explains he was emailed the footage.
But he said the sender did not have much information on it, except that it was recorded near Paris last week.
Mr Glockner said: “I’ve done a bit of digging since I received it and haven’t been able to find a copy of the original video.
“So I don’t know, it could be a full blown hoax.”
Secureteam10 have drawn comparisons between the sighting over Paris and previous sightings in China and Australia.
In 2010, a similar cigar-shaped object was seen near Xiaoshan airport in China that caused the airport to shut down.
Then there was the sighting in the Gold Coast of Australia in early 2014.
Mr Glockner said: “Again we see what looks like a very similar UFO, hovering over the beach, in an eerie display, that truly makes the hairs on my neck stand up.”
