It appears in the left corner as lightning strikes  Eerie footage of an unidentified bright light shining in one of Australia's most remote areas has sparked claims it could be a UFO. 

Broome police, in Australia's far north-west, shared CCTV footage of a bizarre looking object in the sky on Twitter  - and many were quick to claim it was a UFO. 

The video shows a bright object tilted on its side during a thunderstorm on the  Saturday night. 

Police captioned it saying: 'After reviewing CCTV at town beach of last night's storm, it appears we are not alone.'

The round illuminated object appears in the corner of the screen as lightning strikes.

It hovers in the sky during the storm before disappearing into the distance just seconds later. 

Twitter users have been trying to come up with possible explanations, with some saying it is probably just the reflection of a car's headlights on the camera at the beach.

 'Not sure if it's area 51 replica vehicle or an intergalatic vehicle. Insane footage!' one  Twitter user said. 

Another asked: 'A nice bit of video! How does this optical illusion occur? Refraction, reflection, ionosphere?'. 

Another commented:'You know it's just light refraction from the reversing 4WD right?'
