The object was spotted near Paris, a resembles a cigar radiating light. It has been posted to YouTube, although the uploader admits it could be a hoax.
Conspiracy theorists have compared the sighting to an object spotted in China in 2010 and over the Gold Coast, Australia in 2014.
It is unclear what the object is, and the uploader has admitted that it could be a 'full blown hoax.'
In 2010, a similar cigar-shaped object was spotted in the sky over an airport in China that caused the airport to shut down.
A news report by ABC news claimed that the strange sighting caused the Xiaoshan Airport to 'stop operations' on July 7, 2010.
Tyler Glockner, who runs Secureteam10, also referred back to a previous UFO sighting over the Gold Coast of Australia in early 2014.
He said: 'Again we see what looks like a very similar UFO, hovering over the beach, in an eerie display, that truly makes the hairs on my neck stand up.'
In the video, Glockner explains that the footage was sent to him in an email, and that the sender did not have much information on it, other than the fact that it was recorded near Paris within the last week.
Mr Glockner said: 'I've done a bit of digging since I received it, and haven't been able to find a copy of the original video.
'So I don't know, it could be a full blown hoax.'
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline: 'It is always a danger sign when a video or picture of a UFO is from an anonymous source with little supporting information or eyewitness testimony.
'In this case it is a video from "France", which isn't very helpful.
