The lights appeared above the village of Novogradovka in south-western Ukraine’s Odessa Oblast this week.

A video shows seven lights in formation, seemingly in the shape of an airplane, but then one of the lights starts to mysteriously drop out of the sky.

Footage was posted online by a local man named Ivan Rusev, who claimed that the objects appeared ‘out of the blue’ at a ‘significant height’ and stayed visible for around 12-15 minutes.

The video was shared on social media in the Ukraine, with some questioning what the mysterious lights were and if they signalled an alien invasion.
