Scottish mum snaps '˜flying saucer' shaped cloud formation
A mum has captured a stunning picture of a cloud formation - that looks just like a flying saucer.
Nature lover Fiona Pagett, 49, headed out to Biggar, South Lanarkshire, on Sunday evening to photograph the beautiful sunset.
But the mum-of-two got the shock of her life when she spotted a strange flying saucer shape in the sky.
Fiona, from Edinburgh, took out her Nikon camera to capture the UFO-shaped object only to realise it was actually a lenticular cloud - stationary clouds that form in the lowest region of the atmosphere.
The personal trainer says she did not expect to capture “some sort of spaceship”.
She said: “Well I had headed there to try and take some pictures of the beautiful sunset but I noticed some sort of spaceship cloud.
“It was a bit surreal especially considering we had the most beautiful weekend with beautiful blue skies.
“When I did some research regarding the type of cloud it was, I noticed they are unusual clouds and some people have got them mistaken for ufos.
“I put the picture on Facebook, it was pretty cool to get a positive response.”
Fiona enjoys doing photography in her spare time.
She added: “I’ve always been doing it. It’s a hobby of mine.”
