'UFO' spotted over Sheppey during thunder and lightning storm

It may well be met with an eye-roll by many, but a UFO was spotted during Tuesday night's storms - it has been claimed.

In a video viewed more than 550 times on YouTube, a small black circle can be seen to move in the sky within a frame as lightning strikes over the Isle of Sheppey.

User tizzyprelude, who posted the clip, wrote: "Upon reviewing the video for image, I stumbled upon this. What do you think? Something is definitely there and has moved within one frame."

One viewer, however, proposed an explanation - but still labelled the imagery as "odd".

Commenting under the username Dom M, he said: "Could be the lightning reacting to your camera sensor, who knows.

"What you need to do is look at that part of the screen before the lightning and add a filter to see if the object is there before the lightning."

In Hythe and Folkestone, a series of lights spotted glowing through clouds became a bit of a mystery.
