A dad was left 'freaked out' after discovering footage on his CCTV of four objects flying in perfect formation across his driveway in the middle of the night - leaving him to quip 'the aliens have landed':
Adam McCann was concerned when he woke up on 19 April and his Ring camera flagged there had been some movement outside his country home in Ottery St Mary, Devon, just before 5am.
However, when the dad-of-two checked the footage back he was left confused when a pair of bright lights shot from a tree opposite the house and through the pitch black sky.
As they careered towards the house, the number doubled and the fluorescent foursome followed an identical path as they zigzagged above the family's cars.
Leaving a sparkling tail behind them, the four flying objects shot through the sky before disappearing in the fields opposite social care support worker Adam's home.
The 47-year-old shared the clip online with the caption 'the aliens have landed', and admitted to pals that the footage had left him 'totally freaked out'.
Adam said: "I just thought 'what the hell was that'. I've watched it back a few times now to try and work out what's going on but I haven't had any luck so far.
"It's just the fact that they're all flying in formation with the trails behind them that look like smoke trails. Two of them seem to hit my daughter's car and the other two appear to fly over the wall and disappear.
"We live out in a rural area, nowhere near a main road, so it doesn't pick up any car lights or people walking around in the dark."
He went on: "People have said they thought the lens was dirty and that was just refracting one thing flying around but four different times. Like a broken mirror.
"Others have said it might have been glow worm flies, but unless they've been taking flying lessons off the Red Arrows, I can't imagine it's them.
"I hardly ever check our Ring camera but I saw there had been movement at 5am and I thought I should check and see what it is.
"What's even more strange is that normally around 5am it's getting light but in this footage, it was still really dark."
Adam continued: "I've never seen anything like this on the camera before. They haven't returned, it was just a one time thing.
"I've checked the camera every day since and they haven't returned. For anyone saying its birds, they obviously don't fly around in the dark.
"You can see the dots in the tree first and then suddenly they've moved and are above our cars. It was all over so quickly."
