A mysterious glowing light moving across the night sky sparked fears an alien race was invading us from another planet.

In a series of videos, taken by residents, a large ball of light is seen hanging in the night sky for several minutes.

Gradually, the ominous orange glow moves further away and eventually extinguishes in the far distance.

Many residents managed to film the bright light, with several videos going viral across social media.

At the time, many people were concerned about the ball of light and jumped to the conclusion it was an alien space craft.

However, others were quick to point out that the luminous body could be a flare or some other fired object.

The strange sighting took place in the town of Ocana in Norte de Santander, Colombia.

Local media said the authorities, as well as local residents, are still trying to find out exactly what the light was.

According to witnesses, the orange glow disappeared close to the neighbouring town of Aguas Claras.

Although authorities have yet to comment, netizens have made up their own minds. Some joked that the sighting must signify "the end of the world".

However, there were more sensible suggestions from others.

Facebook user Dixon Florez Castro said: "The light is from a flare parachute used during military actions.

"They illuminate large areas at night, usually for parachute landings and observational operations. Here it looks more dramatic because the sky is cloudy."
