A mysterious figure has been captured on camera moving around at night outside a gas station in Peru.
The peculiar footage, which has already been viewed almost one million times since it was first uploaded on to YouTube at the end of last month, shows what looks like a small figure moving towards the right-hand side of the frame along the outside edge of the building's parking lot.
Two men standing in the foreground, who don't notice the figure until around one minute in to the video, can be seen walking towards it just as it is about to disappear off to the side.
According to the video's caption, the "strange creature or robot less than a meter high" was seen "floating or walking" through the car park at 3:30am before later being hit by a cargo truck.
The footage has generated a lot of discussion on social media with suggested explanations ranging from an extraterrestrial visitor to a deflated helium balloon being blown in the wind.
The video itself, which was uploaded by YouTube user Anthony Choy, can be viewed below.
