Footage, which was filmed on May 16, shows a bright ball of light moving across the sky.
Around 30 seconds later, it seems to change direction.
Melissa was left baffled as she tried to work out what the ball was.
She said: “It does move with intent it seems. Still don’t have a clue what it is.”
Dozens of apparent UFO sightings have been reported across the US in recent months.
She told Fox26 that the disk may have had a hole in the middle.
Her friend Victor Chavez claimed it was a spaceship.
The 23-year-old was on a night shift when he reportedly saw a streak of light.
He said he felt compelled to film the lightning storm that was unfolding.
Conner admitted he didn’t know what the streak of light was.
He said: “Best case scenario it was a meteor because I’ve never seen one. And worst-case scenario, an alien invasion.”
He shared the footage online, prompting ufologists to speculate about what the clip showed.
Some compared it to HG Wells’s famous science fiction novel The War of the Worlds.
In the book, a meteor carrying hostile aliens crashes towards the earth.
Others believe Conner saw a meteor but they were left stunned by the speed it moved across the sky.
She said she had her first encounter with aliens in November 2020 after taking up astrophotography to help cure her lockdown boredom.
She described her first encounter with aliens and UFOs as “very intense”.
Last summer, Pentagon officials investigated unidentified aerial phenomena after dozens of alleged sightings had been reported by military pilots.
The topic, which was restricted to the fringes of politics just decades ago, is now a national security issue and has left intelligence officers in Washington scrambling for answers.
Nick Pope, who previously investigated UAPs for the British Government, believes this year could be crucial for the UFO movement.
He said: “I think 2022 is going to be critical.”
In May, security chiefs in Washington DC were forced to admit there have been 400 unexplained sightings reported by the US military.
They also confessed there have been 11 near misses with unidentified objects and US military aircraft.
And, officials admitted that they are probing incidents where crafts may have tried to jam US aircraft.
