An astronomer has spotted an image of a mysterious cylindrical object while collecting data about M42 Orion, one of the most radiant nebula. The unidentified object can be seen in a single frame that he had captured with the help of an 8-inch astrograph Newtonian telescope.

According to reports, as the astronomer continued to capture more frames of the nebula, which is present in the constellation of Orion in the Milky Way, he was surprised to see more of such strange objects.

When the clips are seen frame by frame, those unidentified objects appear to be moving and the movement appears to be taking place from left to right. The astronomer has reported this UFO sighting to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

"This is not the first and definitely not the last time as I search the night skies for galaxies, nebula and the truth that is out there," the astronomer stated.

However, this is not the first time when astronomers and UFOlogists have spotted cigar-shaped objects. In November, astronomers had discovered a similar object that turned out to be the first interstellar asteroid. It was around 400 metres long, rocky with reddish hue and was named Oumuamua.
