A strange humanoid-shaped UFO has been filmed hovering in the sky alongside a busy road in Mexico.
Puzzled drivers were left wondering if they had captured evidence of ALIENS visiting Earth as the footage went viral and was quickly picked up by conspiracy theory websites.
“You can see that the tubular UFO is flying vertically over the city” wrote UFO expert Pedro Ramirez who described it as the “first sighting of 2018”.
The sighting occurred in the city of Mexicali in the state of Baja California in Mexico.
The upright shape remains suspended in the air and is distinctly different from rounded “flying saucer” UFOs that are conventionally thought of as evidence of alien visitors.
The unusual object is clearly visible in the recording, silhouetted against the dramatic skyline.
Ramirez says that the increased space activity in recent years from the likes of NASA and SpaceX have led to an increased interest in Earth from alien visitors.
“Aliens are aware that we have made a number of space launches recently and have identified that we have been sending up ‘war material’,” he claimed to the CEN news agency.
“Concerned by our activity, they have been increasingly monitoring our planet. This year will be very important for those of us who follow this phenomenon closely.”
The video of the mysterious UFO has been shared over 50,000 times online and other theories have emerged about what it could be. One of which is that it’s a pilot testing a jet pack.
Others have said that the video is a clever fake.
