This is the eerie moment a huge ball of glowing light hovering in the sky sparked panic among locals - fearing it was a UFO.

The spooky being was seen hovering in the clouds above buildings in Ocana in Norte de Santander, Colombia.

Residents who filmed the bizarre scene feared it was an alien aircraft from another planet - while others said it could have been a flare suspended in the air.

A man can be heard in the background of the video shouting in Spanish: 'It's not a star. It's not a plane. It's Superman!’

While another spectator cries: 'It's moving!' exclaims another.

Local authorities have still not released an explanation for the strange sighting - but some viewers suggested it could be part of a military training drill.

Dixon Florez Castro said: 'The light is from a flare parachute used during military actions. 'They illuminate large areas at night, usually for parachute landings and observational operations. Here it looks more dramatic because the sky is cloudy.’
