Marie Mela from Vienna was celebrating the New Year with friends in the Mostviertel region of Lower Austria.
At a certain moment a friend lets off a firework, which heads into the sky. As the rocket explodes a white object becomes visible between the clouds being struck by lightning.
Marie Mela surprised by the strange occurrence in the sky, wrote: “Not sure if this is a UFO over Lower Austria or some bizarre weather phenomenon. Anyone any idea what it is?”
