Footage of a large disc-shaped object emerging from the clouds has racked up millions of views on social media.
The clip, which was posted up by TikTok user Nesha Higgins, shows a very thin, very wide 'flying saucer' emerging from a large clump of clouds somewhere over the United States.
"What is that ? It's the craziest s**t I've ever seen in my life," a female voice can be heard saying.
The video soon went viral, with the original TikTok video attracting 451,000 'likes' and a re-upload on Twitter receiving almost 4 million views at the time of writing.
Some social media users have suggested that the footage could be some form of marketing for director Jordan Peele's upcoming science-fiction horror movie 'Nope'
, however the man himself actually replied to the posting on Twitter, writing "That one's not mine."
In truth, the most likely explanation for the phenomenon is that it is a lenticular cloud - a type of cloud that appears as a vivid disc-shaped formation that can often be mistaken for a UFO.
