Bizarre footage has emerged of a 'UFO' caught in the middle of a 'major lightning storm'.

The video, captured on November 22, shows what the narrator claims is a 'triangular object' hovering in the sky as lightning strikes it from several angles.

"It clearly shows a triangular object floating in the sky during a major lightning storm," UFO Today wrote online.

"It seems these mysterious objects are feeding on the 200000 ampere lightning strikes to load their intergalactic batteries."

According to UFO Today, "this wasn't the first time a UFO was caught during a lightning storm."

"Back in 2017, a UFO was caught on camera when it was hit by a gigantic lightning strike in the US."

Triangular and pyramid UFO sightings have become quite common in recent years, particularly above north and central America, but not everyone thinks they're aliens visiting Earth.

Often referred to as 'Black Triangles', some UFO experts claim people are actually seeing a top secret US spy aircraft known as TR-3B.

The theory goes that TR-3Bs are the product of reverse engineering extra-terrestrial technology.

The narrator makes this claim in this particular video.

TR-3 planes do not officially exist, but according to conspiracy theorists, they are a class of US surveillance aircraft first used during the Gulf War in the early 1990s and developed in complete secret.

Another famous YouTube channel, Secureteam10, also analysed this footage and suggested the object could be a 'cloud,' but eventually concludes: "I really do think we have something strange here."
