A report has been filed to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) with video alleging to be of a mysterious UFO appearing over the Iranian capital before soldiers fire shots.
One video shows a strange white orb that appears to speed up and change direction.
Another clip shows a similar object in the sky while shots are fired from a building roof.
An anonymous report filed with the video said the incident happened on January 17 at 5pm local time.
This has called the report into question because the same clips have been uploaded to YouTube a day earlier on January 16.
It said: “Iranian Airforce defence started shooting heavily to many UFOs.
“At the centre of Tehran Enghelab square thousands of people were seeing this unbelievable incident and many pictures and videos were captured.
“After the shooting, many airforce aircraft started flying above Tehran searching for these glowing orbs but they couldn’t find anything.
“Then they said they were UAVs (drones) to censor and debunk this incident, but as you see in videos UAVs can’t fly like that and can’t change their direction suddenly – just UFOs and alien technology can fly and move like that.
“And for UAVs they don’t start to shoot that heavily at the centre of Tehran like it’s a war, and they don’t use the airforce aircrafts just for finding UAVs!”
The report writer said they were the administrator of the “biggest UFO disclosure page on Instagram”.
MUFON is investigating the claims, but the organisation admits it receives many reports and video or camera footage that is deliberately hoaxed.
