Footage has emerged of what looks like the moon changing shape as it moves across the night sky.
The video, which was filmed in a town in Russia, shows a group of teenagers in a car park gazing up at what initially appears to be the moon shining in the night sky above the buildings.
As they continue to watch however the object suddenly begins to move, first rising up higher in to the sky and then disappearing towards the right of the frame at considerable speed.
The controversial footage, which is almost certainly a hoax using computer graphics, has been viewed nearly 150,000 times since being uploaded on to YouTube just over a week ago.
