Is it light reflecting off of an airplane? Is it a drone? Or is it something from out of this world?

That's what a whole lot of people are wondering after this clip started making its rounds around the internet. A family was driving near Keokuk a few months ago for a family road trip when they all noticed something.

What looked like a star appeared in the sky during the daytime hours. The individual who shared this with Pen News submitted it under an alias, but in the video, you can hear his six-year-old daughter claiming that what they were seeing, were actually aliens.

Like most parents would, the two adults are trying to calm the child down and let her know that what they are seeing probably aren't little green men.

“Daddy, I swear it’s a UFO,” she exclaimed.

Then this star begins to move and ultimately disappears. The individual who reported this to the online news source is from Hamilton, Illinois, and claims that he still isn't completely sure of what he saw.

Well, what do you think? Is it a UFO or maybe just a drone?

Check out the video down below so you can come to your own conclusions about this strange sighting in the Hawkeye State.
