So many people saw the bizarre formation of lights over Brandon, Canada, that it made the TV news.
Video emerged showing four lights hovering in formation in the sky before one suddenly disappears from view.
One onlooker, a terrified man, even claimed in the footage he was followed by the UFOs for 12 miles down a highway.
He can be heard saying in the video: “I am shaking right now.
“It’s crazy, they followed me along the highway.
“I can’t believe I am holding the camera this steady.”
UFO expert Scott Young, of Manitoba Museum, said the number of sightings has rocketed recently in the city.
He added: “When you see them live it is a very eerie sensation to see these unexplained lights.
“I’m not surprised that people find them unusual and take video.”
Local astronomer Chris Rutkowski said he believes they may be alien spaceships.
He added: “People have seen V-shaped formations of orange lights.
“Sightings have increased recently, while most can be explained, we are left with another 15 percent which are puzzling.
“They are worth more study.”
Scott C Waring, UFO blogger, said: “When I compare to photos and video from an old reports back in 1997 called the Phoenix Lights in Arizona, I see that the similarities are much more… it’s the same giant UFO.
“These lights are on one single giant dark UFO in the sky. It must have been very late at night if so few people witnessed it, but the footage… is just amazing.”
The infamous Phoenix Lights incident happened on March 13 1997, when five lights were seen in a formation by thousands of people over three hours from 7.30pm to 10.30pm.
The sightings took place a cross a 300-mile area from Phoenix to Tucson.
It was blamed by officials as military flares at the time.
