Is it the work of a holy being, or a homely prankster?

A security video taken on Sept. 11 last year -- reportedly at the Cilandak Town Square in Jakarta, Indonesia -- appears to show what YouTubers describe as an "angel-like spirit" flying into view and leaving in a burst of light seconds later.

People with flashlights then storm the area where the winged being appeared, seemingly to investigate the strange occurrence.

Some are saying that the video shows an angel -- others think the "humanoid" figure might be a visit from another dimension.

"You can see the pulsating. ... I think it's an extraterrestrial," says the narrator of another YouTube video who dissected the images.

United Press International is reporting this week that the video could be a hoax, basing its findings on YouTube comments.

"First of all, we have one static picture, on which picture of alleged 'light being' is mounted," the news site quoted a commenter as saying. "Nothing in that lobby moves except it. And then suddenly, after it disappears, we see a man in lower right quadrant of video who is walking by, who has suddenly appeared in almost middle of frame, coming from nowhere, apparently un-baffled by appearance of huge winged light creature in front of his undisplayed path. And creature illuminated entire floor of that building. Eh."

UFOs? Maybe They're Just..
