A video of a cigar-shaped Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) hovering over the skies of Denton, Manchester has been captured online.

The video which has been uploaded on YouTube was also sent to UFO Sightings Daily's Scott C Waring, who published a write-up on the incident in his blog.

"Object was just visible to the naked eye. Was in the sky for around 40 minutes before raising so high that it could not be seen at all. UFO means unidentified flying object so I'm not saying it was little green men, but still...interesting to watch," reads the description by the witness under the video.

"The camera is so shaky because it was at full zoom, and knowing how high it appeared in the sky (higher than planes) I'm guessing its size was massive. This is all I got, the object was so high up it took me ages to find it in the viewfinder as the camera only picked it up when it shined in the light," the the description further reads.

Waring also pointed out a blink and miss appearance of a second UFO, which can be seen 32 seconds into the video and is visible for less than a second before it goes out of the video frame at an incredible speed.

Meanwhile, a UFO hovering outside the International Space Station on Tuesday was also highlighted by Waring, who wrote:

"I was watching the NASA International Space Station live cam a few minutes ago and I was luckier that usual [sic] and actually caught one. This object was visible slightly and seemed to match the stations speed."

"The object is solid, yet on the right side there is a distortion which is caused from its power source," he added.

This is not the first time a UFO has been captured from the international space station camera.

Earlier this year in May, an image of a UFO hovering above the Earth's surface was uploaded to the Nasa website.

In the image, taken by NASA's space station camera, the disc-shaped object could be seen emitting strange rainbow-like colourful lights above the Earth's surface.
