Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 8:21 AM - Sunday's supermoon was a spectacular display and, based on the number of photos you've sent us, it attracted a large crowd. Now, a new YouTube video suggests the phenomenon was incredible enough to draw audience members in from another world.

A new video posted to YouTube shows a supposed UFO zipping past the moon Sunday evening.

We're not convinced.

To our (un)trained eyes in The Weather Network newsroom, it looks more like a leaf or perhaps even a bird.

But mediabyjj, the user who uploaded the footage taken at an undisclosed location, believes otherwise.

"I was actually looking at the camera's video screen as this object was passing in front of the Moon - I was trying to determine if it was a bird or something; however, this thing was far away from where I was standing. I don't know what it is," he says.

"The supermoon is beautiful, so recording some footage of the event was cool in and of itself - this definitely piqued my interest, though!"



The Huffington Post UK has a few theories as to what the object may be.

The publication points out the supermoon coincided with the Perseids meteor shower, so the UFO may actually be a meteor streak.

It could also be a satellite or nothing at all: There's always the possibility the video has been doctored.
