The footage was captured while Officer Tiffany Vanzant was driving over a viaduct.

They wrote: "Officer Vanzant had a front row seat to a truly spectacular sight and thanks to her in-car camera and a little movie making magic, we want to share it with everyone.

"It is important to note that there were no space aliens hurt in the making of this video!"
