Bizarre footage appearing to show a glowing orb emerging from a lightning storm in Texas has sent the conspiracy world into meltdown.
The footage – taken from a motorway in Pittsburg – shows lightning bolts streaking across the gloomy sky.
A " UFO " then seems to emerge from one bolt and darts to the left of the screen.
The sight was captured by Travis C and shared to YouTube by conspiracy theorist MrMBB333.
He explained: “That was definitely something coming out of the clouds.
“You can see that white object, there’s nothing on the windshield or in the sky that could make that type of anomaly.”

MrMBB333 dismisses suggestions it could simply be a water droplet as “it’s moving against the wind”.
“It moves towards us and then to the left of the screen,” he continues.
“It is bright white. I did check for street lights and there doesn’t seem to be any.
“The more I look at it, the more I think it is something coming out of the sky, from the lightning strikes.”
More than 8,000 people have seen the clip since it was shared today.
“That clip from Texas reminds me of War of the Worlds,” one spooked viewer wrote.
Another said: “Looks just like a UFO.”
But others had a rather more morbid explanation for what was being seen.
“Maybe it is a flaming bird that caught fire after being struck by lightning,” a third suggested. “I hope he was prayed up.”
And a fourth believed what was being seen was the weather phenomenon “ball lightning”.
The unexplained phenomenon happens when bright, spherical objects are seen in the sky considerably longer than a split-second flash of a lightning bolt.
