A video of what appeared to be the beginning of an alien invasion, filmed by a Florida resident and shared on TikTok, has turned out to be the lights from a nearby Taylor Swift concert.
In the 47-second clip, which has been viewed over one million times, a bright light moving back and forth above a series of apartment buildings can be seen.
The woman filming the clip can be heard exclaiming in disbelief at the apparent UFO, with fellow residents heard offering their thoughts on the matter.
Taylor Swift was performing one of her Eras tour shows at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium at the time the video was recorded.
After the clip went viral, users on TikTok had differing opinions about what was captured.
Some confidently claimed that it was the stadium lights, while others thought it was a result of an unexplained phenomenon.
Those who thought the lights were from the concert pointed out that the woman lived next to the stadium and that the lights were shining from above, not going straight up to the clouds like the usual concert lights.
Others disagreed and suggested that the lights were from an extraterrestrial source.
Taylor Swift’s US tour is set to end in California on August 9.
The singer has not commented on the video, which has drawn attention to her sold-out concerts.
The incident is a reminder of how easily a video can go viral on social media, leading to widespread speculation and confusion.
