A strange white object has been spotted in archive footage of a NASA shuttle launch that took place in 2011.

Predictably, UFO hunters across the internet have been sent into a frenzy by the find, claiming it is evidence of an alien craft.

The shimmery white spectacle can be seen in the clouds alongside the fuel tank discarded from the space shuttle Endeavour after it blasts off for its final mission in May 2011.

Originally posted on NASA's official YouTube channel, the old footage has been dug up and re-examined by UFO enthusiasts. It was re-uploaded to the channel UFO Today , which is dedicated to "the UFO phenomena".
