BIZARRE 'UFO' lights filmed over a remote part of Russia have been called "the real deal" after they went viral on YouTube.
The bright and apparently hovering lights were captured in the sky in the Astrakhan region of Russia at dusk.
Onlookers who recorded the footage were puzzled by the fact what appeared to be elongated orbs of light clustered near each other appeared to be static.
And when the camera panned out they appeared to be hovering over a road by a lake in empty countryside.
Around 100,000 people viewed the video on YouTube, with one posting: "I think this could be the real deal.
"A number of reports of UFO sightings and personal witness reports link back to what is pictured here.”
More sceptical observers debated whether they were just Chinese lanterns or a flare.
There is more than five minutes of recorded footage and the lights appear to flicker and, at one stage, even twirl during the video.
There is most definitely something strange captured here. The differences noted are the length of the video, background images shown, as well as some zoom in and out of the object(s). A lot of UFOs have grainy 30 second clips that put the whole thing in question right off the bat.
