Bizarre amateur footage supposedly showing an oddly-shaped alien UFO hovering over the Midwestern US wilderness has gone viral online. Uploaded to YouTube only last week, the 90-second clip clearly shows an anomaly apparently flying near a road in Indiana.
The conspiracy theorist took to his UFO Sightings Daily site to speculate if it was a UFO.
He said: “This is a great video, it does shake a bit, because using a zoom causes a little shaking to seem like a lot.
“You can hear the man’s effort to hold the camera still and his dismay at what it might be.
“The one piece of evidence that confirms it is a intelligently-powered craft is that the wind is blowing in the opposite direction than the UFO.
They are quoted as saying: “I’m a truck driver walking back to my truck when I saw this.

“I went to find a higher viewpoint and it was gone. UFO? alien? Drone? A square bird?”
However, a more realistic explanation for this anomaly is it is simply an aeroplane filmed on a poor-quality camera.
But despite the highly dubious nature of the found footage, the video quickly attracted scores of comment online.
They wrote: “After frame by frame analysis, using edge detection software and adjusting the exposure, and zooming in, it’s a safe bet it is a square bird.
“That, or a banner being pulled by a small plane, probably landing at a nearby local airport.”
