The viral video, which has been watched more than 116,000 times, was allegedly filmed by the NASA probe as it entered the gas giant’s orbit this month.
An article published alongside the video claimed: “First pictures captured by Juno revealed a mysterious UFO hovering over the giant red spot during few minutes before leaving in deep space.
“In February 2016, an enormous alien structure was seen moving in the direction of Jupiter’s moon Europa which, according to some UFO hunters, resembles an ‘interstellar mothership’ or ‘an intergalactic cruiser’.
“There has been a lot of scientific talk about alien life likely existing in the vast oceans that currently exists under its icy surface.
“Are aliens hiding behind jupiter?”
But unfortunately for alien chasers hoping for news of a real UFO video capture in deep space, this is unlikely to be the case.
The video was produced by website and YouTube channel Section 51 2 which a string of UFO hoax busters have claimed create footage using CGI animation.
It also blocks comments on most of its videos.
Genuine UFO investigators loath hoax videos and sightings because of the “damage” they say it does to the credibility of genuine research.
They also accuse them of cashing in on advertising revenue from the number of views on YouTube.
Express.co.uk has contacted Section 51 2 a number of times and so far it has failed to respond.
