Three UFOs flying in formation was captured on video as they darted across the Moon. Shortly after, the small fleet of UFOs was then followed by two other strange objects.

The video of the incident was captured and uploaded by YouTube user M S from Sri Lanka. According to the user, the footage was captured accidentally as he was filming the Moon on the night of June 24 to test out his Canon EOS 70D with 70 300mm lens.

As he was filming, three dark orbs that seemed to be flying at the same speed flew down across the Moon’s surface. As they reached the lower portion of the Moon, the orbs seemed to form an inverted flying-V formation.

A few seconds later, two similar-looking objects started to follow the trio.

Since the footage was taken from Earth, it does not automatically mean that the UFOs were on the Moon’s surface. As other YouTube users who commented on the video pointed out, they were most likely flying in the vast space between the Earth and the Moon.

Interestingly, this is not the first time that someone captured mysterious flying orbs on video in the last couple of months.

Earlier in June, self-proclaimed UFO expert Scott Waring of ET Data Base shared a video of white orbs flying over Liberty, Missouri. The video, which was taken during the daytime, clearly showed the orbs as they flew across the sky.

A plane was also captured on video as it approached one of the spherical objects. Waring pointed out that as the plane got closer to one of the orbs, it tilted back and forth as if the pilot was trying to get a closer look of the strange object.

A similar incident was also captured by YouTube user Vasia from Russia. The video, which was uploaded on May 14, showed a total of five orbs darting across the sky. Although four of the objects followed straight paths, one of them zigzagged first before proceeding in a straight line.

According to Waring, these objects are like UFO scouts that were sent to observe their surrounding area.
