A glaring unidentified flying object was sighted over Saudi Arabia at night and astronomers said it was also seen over nearby Oman and Yemen.

A Saudi amateur photographer who was on a desert safari in East Saudi Arabia captured the object with his lens as it streaked slowly in the skies.

“I saw it at a medium altitude…it was flying slowly and had no sound,” the photographer Mohammed Al Otaibi said, quoted by Sabq newspaper, which published a short film of the object flying over the Eastern Ihsa province.
