A bizarre spherical cloud was spotted hovering over a city in Japan last week.
The phenomenon has since sparked the curiosity of conspiracy theorists who believe a ‘Death Star’ UFO created the puff as a shield – allowing it to observe humans without being seen.
However, experts have been quick to respond to these claims, saying the sighting may be a small portion of a larger cloud that was separated by strong winds.
The peculiar cloud was reported earlier this month in the city of Fujisawa, which is just south of Tokyo, Japan.
Images snapped of the strange sighting have caused a frenzy across the internet, as many want to know what was floating in the sky.
Scott C Waring, creator of UFO Sightings Daily, weighed in on the discussion on Wednesday.
‘This sphere cloud was seen over Japan last week and it’s holding together especially well,’ he shares in a blog post.
‘Cloud like this are often made by UFOs that want to hide, yet come especially close so they can scan and observe the humans on the ground.’
Waring continues to explain that since this cloud was formed by a UFO, it has the ability to stay together for hours, whereas natural clouds change shapes ‘second by second’.
However, the photographer who captured the puff in the sky said it started to lose its shapes while they were taking the pictures – then it quickly faded as if it never existed, reports Science Alert.
‘When I looked out of the car window I saw a round ball-shaped cloud. I gazed at the cloud for a while then I rushed to take the photo,’ Twitter user @pmxpvrtmx (Poppy) told local Japanese news outlet, Rocket News 24.
‘When I saw the cloud it was an even more spherical shape, so I regret not taking the photo more quickly.’
