A weather camera picked up this peculiar anomaly on Sunday night and nobody can agree on what it is.
The object was photographed at 3:56am near a naval air station on Whidbey Island, Washington state.
"My night camera picked up what clearly looks like a very large missile launch from Whidbey Island," wrote Greg Johnson of Skunk Bay Weather who published the picture on Facebook.
"I really wanted more information before I shared this with the public."
Despite suggestions that the photograph shows a missile however, the naval air station on the island maintains that it doesn't actually have the ability to launch missiles of this size.
"There's a lot of speculation around here," said spokesman Tom Mills. "But it's definitely not a missile."
Neither Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society or Professor David Shultz of the University of Manchester's Center for Atmospheric Science believe that the photo shows a meteorological event.
So what could it be ?
