Hundreds of people reported spotting and hearing the bizarre event as it rattled houses in the neighbourhood.
CCTV footage captured the moment the strange event struck the community.
The phenomenon was recorded in San Jose, California, the US, just before midnight.
And the video was posted to a South San Jose social media page showing the small light travelling across the sky for about a minute.
“You can see this is coming from way over on this side,” resident Dale Johnson said while viewing video of the mystery light.
“Yeah that doesn’t do it justice at all,” Johnson added.
The bloke revealed the event shook windows and set off car alarms.
And he’s not alone — others added that it sounded although it was right outside their door.
“I thought at first maybe the transformer blew, but we’ve had that happen before, and it wasn’t that,” said Cynthia Husted.
The US Federal Aviation Administration could not identify what the object was.
The footage has since been shared on several YouTube conspiracy channels.
One of them — secureteam10 — even claimed it could be proof of someone or a group of people using dimension changing technology to change their point in time.
Tyler Glockne, who runs the channel said: “It looks although something is jumping dimensions, or blasting into some kind of warp-speed drive.
“It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”
His video has earned him more than 170,000 views in less than 24 hours.
