Now that Russell Crowe is done with his "Les Miserables" award season duties, he's turning his attention to stars of a different kind.

The Oscar-winning actor uploaded videos to YouTube of a bright, orange-red object that appears to be flying through the sky near Crowe's office in Woolloomooloo, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. The footage, which lasts 23 seconds, begins with the following wording:  “Time lapse photos outside RC’s office in Woolloomooloo…These are real…UFO?”

“A friend and I set camera to capture fruit bats rising from Botanic Gardens, this was a big surprise,” Crowe tweeted alongside the link to the video.

The YouTube posting has garnered more than 300 comments, the majority laced with skepticism over the validity of the footage. 

One viewer posted a message reading: “I don’t understand, if this was time lapse photography then that could just be a plane? What am I missing here?” Another: "The camera is pointed at the glass window!!! The lights are indoors and behind the camera and reflecting in the window!!!!!!!"

One even praised the actor's attempt at an "X-File" moment:  "Its a heli. if you look very close you can see the blades all he did was blur it out. But all and all good effort."
