NASA is reportedly investigating a video showing what appears to be a silver “flying saucer” darting through a deadly storm in Alicante.
Computer scientist Alejandro Molla filmed this footage during the electrical storm yesterday.
The video appears to show a silver disc moving through the clouds.
Spanish news outlet Agencia 6 (A6) says it has been inundated with requests from UFO and weather enthusiasts since sharing the clip online.
Among the interested parties is NASA, who has asked for the original footage, the news station claims.
According to A6, a similar sighting was reported by NASA in skies over Wisconsin last July.
Thunder and lightning reportedly woke Alejandro in the early hours.
He then shot the footage on his phone.
The University of Alicante then analysed the film – and spotted “something weird”, Alejandro claims.
He told A6 : “It is an honour to be able to collaborate with some images that could be the appearance of the first UFO in Alicante.”
News of the footage comes amid terrifying storms in Spain.
The deluge of torrential rain and lightening has killed six people after mass flooding in south-eastern Spain, with tornado warnings in Majorca.
Floods swept away cars and debris in the regions of Valencia, Murcia and eastern Andalucia, while motorway tunnels in some areas were close to being totally submerged.
Cops called to the scene were able to rescue two of the three people inside the vehicle – but the third man tragically died.
Other stranded drivers also had to be pulled from flooded road tunnels in Pilar de la Horadada, in the region of Alicante.
In another shocking road accident at least one person died after a torrent of mud and water engulfed a road in Grenada.

The tunnel death came hours after a woman, 51, and her 61-year-old brother were found dead in an overturned car that flood waters had washed away in Caudete, south of Valencia.
And on Friday evening it was confirmed there had been a fifth fatality, a 58-year-old man from the town of Redován died after being dragged through the water when he left his vehicle and tried to cross a street.
A sixth person who was killed by the severe flooding was a 41-year-old man whose body was found by police in a field at a hamlet near the city of Orihuela in Valencia, a spokeswoman for the central government’s office in the region said, without giving details.
