Clips of the natural phenomena show what appears to be a second, smaller object entering the Earth’s atmosphere during the event on Tuesday.
The American Meteor Society (AMS) has since confirmed a second object was present, but says it was just a smaller fragment of the meteor as it broke up in our atmosphere.
However, the seemingly satisfactory explanation, has done nothing to dampen speculation from die hard alien chasers looking for evidence of extra terrestrial visitations.
The most popular theory is it was an alien craft dispatched to destroy the meteor to prevent an impact.
The meteor was caught on webcam entering Earth’s atmosphere
At the time, most eyewitnesses saw only one object enter the atmosphere, steak across the skies and then burn up.
The AMS had more than 700 reports from witnesses with the fireball also seen over New Hampshire, New Jersey, Vermont, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, and in Canada.
Nemesis Maturity explains the crazy theory in its YouTube video
What a bunch of b*lls**t, that was just a fragment of the rock that disintegrated during entry. The ‘extraterrestrials’ are very far away and have better things to do.
The second, smaller object, then appeared to strike the bigger one before a huge explosion.
The footage was taken from a security camera at Burlington International Airport, South Burlington, Vermont and uploaded by AMS.
According to Nemesis Maturity, UFO researchers analysed the footage, before taking the leap that the second object could have been an alien UFO that shot down the speeding meteor.
The video said: “The meteorite that exploded over Northeastern US was hit by an unknown object causing it to explode before it crashed down.”
Some viewers supported the out there theory, with others ridiculing it.
One viewer posted: “What a bunch of b*lls**t, that was just a fragment of the rock that disintegrated during entry.”
“The ‘extraterrestrials’ are very far away and have better things to do.”
But it is not the first time conspiracy theorists have claimed UFOs are watching from space to prevent asteroid strikes and even nuclear war.
