Some alien life conspiracy theorists suggest a UFO has been captured in footage purportedly filmed on October 1 in Canterbury, New Hampshire. The amateur video apparently shows a shows an odd anomaly sandwiched between two clouds.
Mr Waring wrote on his UFO Sightings blog: “The eyewitness was driving through Canterbury when he noticed a silver orb near the clouds.
“He tried his best to record it, but keeping an eye on the road was clearly more important.
“It may have been hiding within one of them and decided to move to a new cloud.
“At the end of the video is a close up in slow motion. This is 100 percent alien in origin.”
They are quoted as saying: “Silver sphere in clouds moves slowly while shape shifting until it blasts away from me.

However, closer inspection of the three and a half minute-long clip does not back-up their claims.
The object is more likely to be simply a very small, fluffy cloud being blown across the horizon.
The phenomenon of UFO sightings shows no sign of abating, most likely due to the ubiquity of smartphone cameras.
Earth remains the only known source of intelligent life in the Universe – at least so far.
This is a form of apophenia, which relates to our unconscious bias of seeing recognisable shapes and patterns where they do not actually exist.
