A recent video that has captured a monster UFO, "the size of the Earth", hovering above the sky in Australia has gone viral on social media. After a series of UFO sightings, this latest clip showed a large bright object high in the sky appearing to explore its surroundings.

The UFO "horrified onlookers" said that later the glowing subject appeared to hide behind the sun, before a blinding light blocked the camera view. Some of the onlookers even believed that it was an explosion by an alien craft or take-off manoeuvre. The "UFO" then suddenly disappeared in the sky.

The video was posted on social media with a caption that read: "Earth-Sized UFO Sighted in Australia". The video description stated: "Planet-sized UFO starts moving about and finally moves into the Sun. Another smaller UFO has sighted also."

However, a few of the onlookers claimed that they have seen such lights before. "I saw something that looked very similar around this time last year," one YouTube user commented. While, another user said that it is just swamp gas.

Meanwhile, Scott Brando, a sceptic, who runs debunking website claimed that the object in the video is nothing but a reflection of the sun. "That 'UFO' is just the solar disc (of the Sun) reflected through the glass," Brando told

Mick West, the administrator of the website, said that another video claimed to have shown a "second sun."

"However analysis of the video proves that what is shown is an offset lens reflection of the Sun itself. There is nothing else in the sky. The effect is also not a sun-dog, an atmospheric reflection, or a mirage. It's just a reflection happening at the camera. We can see this quite clearly if we stabilise the video so the background is fixed," West added.
