ALIEN hunters believe they have seen a UFO flying over the town of Rugby after a bright, swirling light was seen flying through the skies in broad daylight.
Whether we are alone in the Universe remains one of the biggest mysteries to humanity. Despite a seemingly infinite Universe, there has been nothing to suggest that life on Earth is not an anomaly. However, every now and again, a strange light appears in the skies, leading to cries from conspiracy theorists that aliens are visiting our planet.
The latest comes in England, over the midlands town of Rugby.
A video submitted to popular YouTube account UFO Institute shows a strange light in the sky.
The object seems to be swirling in the air, without any discernible direction.
The witnesses filming the video, who were driving along the M1 at the time, can be heard expressing their surprise at the odd object which moves sporadically.

Several comments on the video seem to agree that the object is of extraterrestrial origin.

He argued there are billions of objects in the space near Earth which are more than likely the inspiration for supposed UFO sightings.
He wrote in The Conversation: “Most UFOs have mundane explanations.
“Over half can be attributed to meteors, fireballs and the planet Venus.
“Such bright objects are familiar to astronomers but are often not recognised by members of the public.”
