The UFO – described as a strange, bright, floating light - was spotted in the skies over Deal, a small Kent town in the UK. A video filmed by local Pete Tyas who spotted the glowing orb moving over the small town at 6.30 AM on November 3. Mr Tyas sent his footage to conspiracy theorists The Hidden Underbelly who uploaded his footage to YouTube.
The video description from The Hidden Underbelly reads: “We can see this bright object moving silently through the early morning sky.
“Also it looks like the object has dropped something but it could be a star but there is no doubt about the bigger craft.”
The video was quickly picked up upon by an international audience.
