He said: "There was one plane that could be seen on one of my videos and that was the only aircraft above us at the time.

"I also checked what way the wind was blowing to see if it could have been a balloon, but the wind was going in the complete opposite direction.

"It didn't look like a drone either, plus it kept disappearing and reappearing.

"I'm not saying it's little green men, but I was mesmerised."

Michael said he was interested to know more after the Pentagon released footage about an 'unidentified aerial phenomena'.

The US Government has since announced a taskforce to investigating sightings between US military personnel and unidentified flying objects.

When asked if he thought it was the International Space Station, Micheal said: "No it’s not the ISS. The ISS moves from west to East also, you can’t see it during daytime.

"Plus at the end, it changes it’s direction of travel, the ISS remained on a constant orbit."
