This bizarre footage captures the moment a UFO made an unexpected flypast of a remote Malaysian village, defiant alien hunters claim.

A blinding stream of white light can be seen emanating from the centre of the disc – prompting comparisons with the gigantic spaceship from the Oscar-winning sci-fi epic.

Onlookers can be heard chattering and screaming as the supposed UFO glides above them before executing a sharp about-turn and disappearing into the evening gloom.

The viral footage was initially shared by an anonymous local blogger in Kuala Krai, 230 miles from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

He claimed there is “no doubt” about the film’s veracity – and suggested the village’s remote location meant there was little chance onlookers could have mistaken another aircraft for an extra-terrestrial visitor.

He said: “There’s no doubt what you see on the video. Everybody who saw the ship is convinced by what it is.

“It’s such a remote location that they hardly see airplanes there, definitely not space ships. But there’s a big difference and anyone can tell the difference.

“Some people say the clip has been edited and faked but it looks real. It’s clearly not a military aircraft or a commercial airliner.”

The footage was captured in Kuala Krai, Malaysia.
