A couple of astrophotographers claim to have captured an "unidentified flying object" speeding across the sky over Darwin, Australia.

Paul and Sylvia Mayo who said they have 30 years worth of experience in taking photos of galaxies and star clusters, told a local news publication they were baffled by the sight.

According to NT News, both thought nothing of the zooming object until they realised the speed at which it was travelling.

Paul Mayo told the publication: “We’re switched on people, we have long careers in IT...but this video I cannot explain.

"I'm baffled, and I'm not usually baffled by anything."

He added: "You might see the odd jet but this is, to me, probably moving a lot faster."

Posting the video on the their social media accounts and on YouTube, the couple asked other viewers to weigh into the conversation by asking: "Did we see a UFO on our dash cam?"

While skeptics could argue the object is merely a reflection on the windscreen, Paul Mayo argued the light was moving too fast for it to be a reflection.

“That thing in the video is going along the tree tops in a straight line,” he told NT News.

“And shooting stars curve through the sky."
