ALIEN hunters who were on high alert during the blood moon spotted a mystery object flying through the night sky during the lunar eclipse.
As the eclipse dominated the sky across the US, all eyes were on the disappearing moon.
However, some eagle-eyed viewers noticed strange goings on during the rare phenomenon.
A video uploaded to YouTube channel UFOmania appears to show a spaceship zooming past the moon in a live NASA broadcast.
The clip shows a bright white dot zooming passed the moon, with white offshoots trailed behind the UFO.
The witness who spotted the anomaly said: “I just happened to notice an object travelling at a very high rate of speed going down the left side of the moon and downwards to the left until it was out of the frame.”
“Trailing behind the object was a pulsating/flashing light that seemed to flash at regular interval.”
Many of the comments left under the video agree with the spotter.
David Valentine commented: “WOW! The object in question is travelling at an unprecedented speed!
“There ARE so many things out there we are unaware of!”
Caroline wrote: “Cool video of the moon, and of a space ship.”
Another, Jim Stout simply said: “They’re here.”
However, others were not so convinced that the mysterious object was of alien origin and offered more logical explanations, such as it being an aeroplane.
David Crouch wrote: “Sorry guys but this looks like a aircraft with identification light flashing to me, although I could be mistaken.”
Tramaine added: “It’s a plane!!! Notice the strobe lights?”
Ghosthunter said: “You all can’t be serious… That’s just a Boeing aeroplane.”
A rare lunar trifecta had America watching on January 31, as a blue moon, blood moon and lunar eclipse had the US on its toes.
Despite the name, a blue moon is actually white, but it is a total eclipse that involves the second full moon in a month.
The first full moon took place in the first few days of 2018, which was also the biggest supermoon of the year.
So rare is a blue moon that the phenomenon has not occurred for more than 150 years since 1866.
