The latest UFO sighting has sparked a social media frenzy on Reddit, following footage of an apparent fleet of alien crafts above a southern US state. A one-minute-long video posted to Reddit shows a family of four staring at the skies in Spartanburg, South Carolina, earlier this month.
Their apparent excitement is due to a phenomenon flashing through the dark clouds above.

UFO hunter Scott Waring believes this footage provides the long-awaited proof of an encounter with extraterrestrials.
The alien life conspiracy theorist took to his blog UFO Sightings Daily to speculate about his latest dubious discovery.
He said: “The eyewitness and his family were standing in the back yard when he noticed a sparkling in the clouds above.

“The sparkling continued for several minutes and happened in different locations, but always near the cloud. The sparkling is from a UFO fleet of orbs.”
The so-called UFOs are seen serenely moving from right to left of the screen in the Reddit footage.
And without offering any real evidence, Mr Waring believes the aliens may be attempting to communicate with humans.
He wrote: “They sometimes communicate with flashes and if you actually hit one with a laser, which I have, they will flash back within three seconds.
