VIDEO: Evidence of UFO captured in California?

Fact checked

This UFO video was shot by somebody on their way home from work in southern California on Monday 5th January. It was uploaded to YouTube and Reddit and immediately left users baffled and wondering if this could be the real deal. According to the video’s description:

I was driving home after work when this UFO or whatever you call it caught my eye. I pulled over in front of somebody’s house to film it. I would have got a better shot but I didn’t want to jump these people’s fence. Anyway I don’t know what the hell to make of it. Couldn’t have been a plane cause there was no noise. And I never heard a crash after, either. The orb thing flew straight up into the sky and disappeared. Sorry I didn’t film that. I didn’t know what to focus my attention on.

Unlike other videos purporting to be UFO’s when they can usually be explained away as meteors or other such natural phenomena – this one has one (as yet) unanswered anomaly …

At the 0.17 second mark you see you see what looks like the UFO ejecting out a bright orb object which flies into another direction. What do you think it is? Is this video a clever hoax or the real deal?
