Mobile phone footage captured on an internal US flight from Atlanta to LA – somewhere above Texas – appears to show a bizarre, cigar-shaped light in the sky
A bemused plane passenger woke up during a storm to see a strange brightly-coloured “UFO” hovering beneath the aircraft.
The man, named Mr Chang, used his phone to capture haunting footage of “a glowing line” of fire.
Through the window, a thin cigar-shaped object can be seen in the sky as lightning flashes around it.
It appears to shadow the plane as it travels through the skies.
Mr Chang, who believes he was above Texas at the time, only managed a few seconds of video before the battery on his phone died.
