A woman said she was "mesmerised" after spotting a UFO-shaped cloud hovering in the sky.

Sherrie Fox saw the strange formation over the River Severn in Newnham, Gloucestershire, on Easter Sunday (April 17) afternoon after a picnic.

Sherrie, an avid photographer, said she "couldn't take [her] eyes off it" and managed to pull out her phone to get a quick snap.

The cloud, which bares a striking resemblance to a flying saucer used by aliens, could be a type of lenticular cloud, often comparable in appearance to a saucer or lens.

Ms Fox said: "Saw this awesome UFO like cloud over Newnham Estuary yesterday late afternoon, Easter Sunday.

"I was absolutely mesmerised. I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Luckily I took a couple of shots because two minutes later it had gone.

"We had been to Lydney Harbour for a picnic. Then on the way back we stopped off for an ice cream and ate it by the river at Newnham.

''And during this time that’s when the cloud appeared in front of us."

She added that she thought the sighting was supernatural and it was wonderful to capture such a spectacular sight.

She said: "I look for fun things to share which I think is even more important than ever with all that is going on in the world.

"We need more fun light hearted stories to share to keep us motivated in life."
