Watch: Mysterious sighting whips motorists into a 'UFO' frenzy
Our fascination with alien life is never ending and locals in one area in the UK were swept into a frenzy this week when a "UFO" was spotted above the city of Truro, Cornwall.
The shimmering smoke like object has been spotted in a number of places over Cornwall, including Truro city centre, Fistral beach in Newquay, Carluddon clay tip, over the A30 motorway near a land mark named Roche Rock and by a surfer above the sea off the Cornish coast.
The strange apparition has caused quite a stir on social media, with many people filming the object and others claiming that it may be a sign of alien life.
Kiefer Krishnan caught footage of the strange site on his Go-Pro camera, which he posted on his Instagram account on Monday. Shayne House spotted the weird object, over the A30 motorway, which he then posted on his twitter also on Monday.
So far, no definitive answers have been given as to what the object may be.
