An amateur stargazer has captured three mysterious red lights hovering over the night sky in New Jersey, the US.
One red light appears to be leading two others towards the right before they slowly move in a triangular formation.
They then disappear behind the tree foliage in dark.
“Nooch1020” and his girlfriend Brianna encountered the strange phenomenon outside their home in Winslow township, south New Jersey on May 31.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, he explained that Brianna is obsessed with looking at the stars and picking out which stars are planets and which ones are actual planets.
He said: “She noticed it while using the app to check out what stars are which. It was just flying across the air but like nothing she’d ever seen in person, just on the videos online.
“The triangle shape is pretty common we noticed, it didn’t break a perfect triangle though so it’s hard to believe it was lanterns.
“It seemed to just be gliding effortlessly through the sky.”
Over the past several months, similar videos of red lights moving in an apparent triangular formation have emerged across the US.
The uploader said the latest sighting lasted about two minutes before it disappeared in the night sky.
Brianna also replied to one comment and described the lights as “amber-coloured”.
“They appeared to be much larger than the camera is picking up,” she added. “It looked to me like a triangle.”
The video has been upvoted hundreds of times on Reddit since being posted earlier this week.
One viewer said he had witnessed a similar sighting at the same location, saying: “It was pretty much directly over the road moving west toward Philly.
“It moved directly over me, going the exact opposite direction as me.”
A second viewer claimed he had seen the “craft” with his dad in the neighbouring town of Haddon.
Some believed it was military testing in the area and others guessed it could be Chinese lanterns.
“Triangles are just stealth military aircraft to me,” one suggested.
Another wrote: “Chinese lanterns tied by string in a V-formation? My friends and I tried this in the past and the results looked very similar. Especially on a clear, summer night with little wind/breeze.”
As well as Chinese lanterns being a possible explanation, drones have also been used to explain sightings of similar red lights in the past.
Conspiracy theorists have previously speculated the triangle objects could be a TR-3B spy plane.
The TR-3 Black Manta is the name of a surveillance plane of the United States Air Force, speculated to have been developed under a black project.
It is said to be a supersonic stealth spy plane with a triangular design.
