The man who filmed the craft stated that he did a “double take” as soon as he saw the vision in the sky in New Hampshire, USA.
He stated: “I was reading on my deck around 7 o’clock.
“I am told that military pilots train in the mountains around where I live and I’ve always enjoyed seeing them fly through.
“This happens all the time, jets and helicopters are a common sighting. So I naturally saw the jet and did a double take, because there was something following it.
“I immediately thought I was witnessing some strange aircraft, possibly military but it was not a jet.
“I knew it wasn’t a jet because it was actually right behind one. The jet it was chasing left a long contrail behind it, but the UFO did not.”
The witness added the “UFO was gaining on the jet” and declared that he was “blown away” by the incident.
The cameraman stated it would be “very hard” to write off the incident as a “weather balloon” or another aircraft.
He went on: “I watched the object gaining on the jet for about 10 seconds when I lost them in the trees.
“I was very excited and anxious. I felt I have witnessed something very hard to dismiss as a ‘weather balloon’ or some obvious type of aircraft.
“Shortly after the jet and object left my range of sight I saw three more jets and one helicopter going the same direction, in my opinion, chasing the UFO.”
One viewer said: “Great evidence…keep your eyes on the skies…the truth will come from above..eyes open!”
However, it has since emerged the video was actually filmed in 2016 and investigated by the US-based Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). They found the footage to be an optical illusion caused by two planes flying at different altitudes.
Sceptic Scott Brando, who runs debunking website Ufoofinterest.org pointed to other footage of the same incident taken from another angle.
He told Express.co.uk: “They are two different planes flying at different heights which causes the contrails.
“The perspective causes an illusion showing a strange aircraft following an airliner, but they are two different planes.”
A MUFON investigator posted on YouTube: “It could be a jet – some do not have contrails, although this usually seems to occur in orthogonal motion – which is what you may have here.
“And because two aircraft are moving at 90-ish degrees they often look faster (or hovering).”
