Sherrie Fox was enjoying a picnic when she saw the unusual apparition appear in the sky over the River Severn in Newnham, GloucestershireLive reports.
Managing to pull out her phone and snap a quick photo before it disappeared, Sherrie described her inability to take her eyes off it.
Ms Fox said: “I saw this impressive cloud-like UFO over the Newnham Estuary late yesterday afternoon, Easter Sunday.
“I was absolutely mesmerized. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. Luckily I took some pictures because two minutes later it was gone.

Seen across the country, an orb-shaped formation has left people scratching their heads at the bizarre sight, EdinburghLive reports.

Met Office experts gave an overview of the unusual sightings which they described as lenticular clouds.
A Met Office spokesman said EdinburghLive “These strange and unnatural clouds sometimes form downwind of hills or mountains.
“They are quite unusual in the British Isles but do occur occasionally.
“They look a lot like the traditional shape of flying saucers in science fiction, and true lenticular clouds are considered one of the most common explanations for UFO sightings around the world.”
