A strange object was picked up on a webcam at Spring Creek Ranch in the early hours of August 11th.
The UFO, which can be seen moving from left to right across the sky, was first spotted at 3:41am by an anonymous webcam user who had been hoping to catch a glimpse of the Perseid Meteor Shower.
"My coworker thought something was broken on the camera," she told news site Buckrail.
What makes the sighting particularly notable is the bright flash that lights up the entire sky for a brief moment just after the object disappears from view."It would totally be a plane in my mind if there weren't a weird, bright flash in the end," she said.
There were reportedly no flights recorded for this stretch of airspace at the time of the sighting.
It's important to note that the footage, which can be viewed below, has been sped up. The webcam only captures one frame per second, so the object was actually moving much slower.
