Australian police have been left scratching their heads after capturing spooky footage of what appears to be an unidentified flying object (UFO).

Police noticed the object after reviewing vision of a storm that erupted over a beach in the town of Broome on Saturday night. Bolts of lighting can be seen erupting in the sky before the object comes into view in the left-hand corner of the screen. 

The UFO can be seen hovering for a few moments before disappearing out of frame.

Check out the footage for yourself bellow:

Public opinion is split after police posted the video - some people swear the video confirms that aliens exist.

"It's a damn alien," one user wrote.

"It's a dam alien, but not sure if it's area 51 replica vehicle or intergalatic vehicle. Insane footage!" wrote another.

But others believe it's merely an optical illusion.

"You know it's just light refraction from the reversing 4WD right?" one user wrote.

"It is caused by the car reversing in the bottom right corner. It mirrors its movements exactly."

"Aliens probably exist, but this isn't it."

Either way, this footage is pretty epic.
