It was published to YouTube on 5 May and was apparently filmed in the Asadabad district of Afghanistan by US Marines.
It shows a triangular-shaped craft hovering in the distance before emitting a series of flashing lights, apparently prompting an explosion beneath it.
One of the Marines behind the camera can be heard exclaiming: “What the fuck was that?” as the dust settles.
As do the majority of the comments left on the clip, with Eddie Allen going as far as to suggest it is specifically a UAV X-47B – also noted for its triangular shape.
But being that there’s no official identification of the craft, for now it can just remain a good old fashioned UFO.
