CREEPY footage of the night sky illuminating red from alleged explosions terrified the internet.
The video – taken by a passing motorist – shows the bright light emerging behind the trees over the US state of New York.
One of the cameraman can be heard asking whether it is the Northern Lights.
But alien fanatics Blake and Brett Cousins – from YouTube channel thirdphaseofmoon – had a far more chilling explanation.
They also posted a clip taken some 600 miles away in Ohio – showing the exact same thing.
“We have a very clear photo of something amazing that just erupted over the sky,” Brett says.
“This isn’t just a flash, this thing sustains its illumination. It isn’t going in and out, it’s like something just blew and is holding it.”
The incredible sighting – taken on November 22 – happened for over 15 minutes.
“I don’t think it is the Aurora Borealis,” Brett added.
“This is something with big power. It looks strange.”
The video has been seen more than 110,000 times since it was posted yesterday with the caption: “Something big exploded over New York.”
Viewers were quick to comment their own suggestions of what caused the red lights.
“There is a UFO in the clouds giving off a red light, pretty simple explanation,” one claimed.
Another disagreed, writing: “Northern lights. When they appear in lower latitudes they appear red instead of the characteristic blue and green and yellow.”
