Financial analyst Carmen Rich was filming a storm at Fort Lauderdale Beach last month (June 17) when he saw a ‘ball of light’ flying across the sky.
However, it was not lightning, he insists.
The startling clip is slowed down to show the ‘UFO’ appear and suddenly disappear in a flash as Carmen is heard saying: “Wow, did you see that just shoot across?”
Because it happened so quick his step-sister Jennifer Rich, 20, ‘blinked and missed it’.

Carmen, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, said: “It was the fastest thing I’ve seen in my entire life and if it was going that fast I figured it would be making some type of noise but it didn’t.
“The thing in the back was a plane and that’s where you can get a gauge for how fast this thing was. Jennifer turned around, blinked and then missed it.
“I saw it past the phone with my own eyes. I shouted immediately and ended the video because I wanted to see if I actually did get it. I wondered if I was crazy.”
He added: “It was much bigger with my own eyes. The camera shows a light ball but in person it looked much bigger.
“I was on vacation so I was supposed to act normal but that night I actually was scared.
“I’m glad I had that type of experience versus a closer one that other people say they’ve had.
“I believe it was a UFO. It could have been human, it could have been non-human but it was an unknown flying object.
“I don’t know if it’s an alien craft. I don’t think we’re alone in the universe but I don’t think the government tells us all the technology that they have either.
“I don’t know what it was but it was something the public won’t know about for a very long time if at all.
“I showed some local guys and they said they’d never seen anything like it before in their life.”
The 29-year-old believes it’s ignorant to suggest there’s only life on planet Earth.
Commenting on his Facebook post, one user said: “Wow, That was incredible!”
A second surmised: “They [aliens] love thunderstorms. This is how they charge their flying ships. I have also seen, photographed and filmed it several times myself.”
A third said: “Wow, I had to take a double look when you mentioned it, that’s crazy! Good catch!”
