Alejandro Molla, a computer scientist from Spain, was filming an electrical storm that swept across the sky over northern Alicante. On closer inspection, what looks like a silvery flying saucer appear to dart around the top right hand corner of the footage.
Since the recording Spanish news outlet Agencia 6 (A6) says it has been inundated with requests from UFO and weather enthusiasts since sharing the clip online.
In addition to public interest, A6 claims it has been contacted by NASA, who asked for the original clip in order to investigate it further.
According to A6, a similar sighting was reported by NASA in skies over Wisconsin last July.
NASA would therefore be seriously interested in learning more about the apparent sighting.
Thunder and lightening reportedly woke Mr Molla up in the early hours of Saturday morning.
He quickly started to record the storm in an attempt to catch it in its might.
In doing so, the Spaniard inadvertently captured the orb that span out of control at a fast pace.
The University of Alicante then analysed the film – and spotted “something weird“, Alejandro claims.
Torrential rain and vicious lightening has already killed six people, after parts of south eastern Spain severely flooded.
Majorca has had warnings of tornados.
Floods swept away cars and debris in the regions of Valencia, Murcia and eastern Andalucia, while motorway tunnels in some areas were close to being totally submerged.
Flash floods have proved lethal, with the speed at which they arrive combined with unknowing passers-by making for a deadly combination.
In the latest tragedy a man was killed after his car become trapped in a tunnel which filled with water within minutes in Almeria.
Police were quick to arrive at the scene and managed to save two of the three people trapped inside the vehicle.
The third person tragically died.
Other stranded drivers also had to be pulled from flooded road tunnels in Pilar de la Horadada, in the region of Alicante.
