Close Encounters Of The Blurred Kind: Russell Crowe Films 'UFO' Footage (Video)

Look! In the sky! It's a plane; it's a blur, no wait! It's actually a picture of a 'UFO' taken by Russell Crowe himself! The Oscar winner has posted a movie on YouTube filmed near his home in Sydney that he claims shows an unidentified flying object, with the actor posting the footage on his Twitter soon after.

Crowe and a friend of his had apparently set up a stop motion camera in the Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens to capture images of fruit bats, but when they checked the reel they got a little more than was expected. "UFO? Time Lapse Photos Outside RC's Woolloomooloo Office (THESE ARE REAL!)" Crowe posted to his Twitter account with the YouTube clip, with the actor adding in a later post, "Canon 5D, No Flash, can't be a lense flare because it moves, camera is fixed."

Unfortunately for Hollywood's latest UFO enthusiast, three grainy shots of a red blur does not constitute as proof of intelligent life making a pit stop on Earth, as many of the Twitter comments agree. Still, Crowe seems pretty sure and was so far posted five Tweets in the space of eight hours about the alleged UFO incident, and yes, for those of you still wondering, there is a place called Woolloomooloo.

Russell Crowe captures three images of what he believes is a UFO whilst trying to capture images of bats in Sydney, posting his find on Twitter soon after.
