49-year-old Stephen Wilson noticed something spooky in the evening sky and filmed it with his mobile phone to capture the moment forever.
At first, there appears to be nothing more than the usual fluttering of birds, but then the camera focuses on some unknown object hovering around in the sky.
It appears to twist in the air and change shape as it moves across the sky, though what exactly it is nobody can be quite sure.
Being a flying object that is unidentified means it does technically fit the description of a UFO, though that doesn't mean Newcastle residents should be rolling out the welcome mat for aliens and working out which parts of the city extra-terrestrial visitors would like to see first.
The 49-year-old was sure the object he filmed was not a drone or a balloon due to the way it moved and sounded.
Wilson told ChronicleLive: "I thought at first that it was a balloon, you know how people get birthday balloons and they let them off...but I was watching it tumble and I thought, that's not a balloon.
"My sister was here so I shouted her. She came out and I asked her if she could see it too. It was coming over the top and I started taking photographs.
"There was no sound, not an engine or anything. If it was a drone it would have been buzzing away. It started moving quite fast. It stayed at the same height - about the height of a helicopter flying around - and then it turned and headed off towards the A1."
He also explained that he shared his video on a UFO group to get their response and his video footage apparently coincides with an incident in Gateshead where lots of car alarms went off at the same time.
This isn't the first UFO that has been spotted in the skies by Wilson, who says he previously saw what could have been UFOs in 2018 and 2020.
There have been plenty of other UFO claims made around Newcastle over the years, including a man who said he had been abducted by aliens in 1940, 'little green men' being spotted in 1964 and a pair of Northumbria police officers claiming they saw a UFO hover over Tyne Valley for an hour in 1982.
