The unidentified flying object was seen by villagers in the town of Pucyura, in Peru.
This is the eerie moment a UFO was spotted flying high above the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu.
The unidentified flying object was seen by villagers in the town of Pucyura in Vilcabamba, Peru.
The spooky clip was captured by Raul Puma, reports Cusco.
He said: "I filmed it at about 07:30 hours, but the object was flying over the area Habaspata very early.
"Sometimes it approached and moved away from where we were.
"It didn't emit any kind of sound, and from one moment to another it disappeared into the clouds."
Weather balloons are sometimes used in the area and can be confused with flying saucers, the website reports.
Peruvian authorities have thus far remained tight-lipped on what the object is.
Machu Picchu are Incan ruins situated on a mountain ridge 2,430 metres above sea level.
They are thought to have been built for the emperor Pachacuti around 1450.
