A couple driving near the Wiltshire monument last month spotted something unusual hovering over the area.
The unidentified object, which resembled a bright, flat disc, was captured on camera by Tash Minto and her partner Tony Waterhouse who had been driving along the A303 near Mere on October 31st.
"I would not have thought in my wildest dreams that I would make a video like this!" said Minto.
"On the way back from Devon yesterday, we noticed a huge, bright light in the sky on the left side of the A303 road. It was orange and had a very strong artificial light. My partner said there may have been more lights, but I could have sworn it was a solid body."
"We thought of drones or reflectors, but by no means matched their size. The light was constant, under the clouds and motionless. We rotated for about 3 minutes and then disappeared."
As things stand, it remains unclear what the object could have been.
"I'm a big fan of nature and this didn't seem to come from anything like the Sun or the Moon, it felt like it was coming from something artificial," Minto told The Daily Star.
"Tony said it was definitely little green men."
"Personally, I think, if they are out there, they won't be very little. I think they'll be giants."
