A flying saucer made of clouds has been sighted over Wellington's Lyall Bay. When Alex Greig headed to the beach to an enjoy an early morning Milo about 7.50am, he was stunned to see the giant orb looming in the sky above him. "It was phenomenal," he said. "Just absolutely amazing. I've never seen one like that, so perfectly formed. "It looks like there should be a UFO inside it - a big steel disc, like in the movies." Unfortunately the stunning formation was soon obscured by surrounding clouds, he said. MetService meteorologist Emma Blades said it was a lenticular cloud, which are common in New Zealand as they are caused by waves generated by air rushing over mountains. "This is a stunning example though," she said. The formations are often described as "UFO clouds" due to their unusual circular shape. In Texas in June, there were 56 reported sightings to the Mutual UFO network when the clouds appeared after a spate of severe weather. UFO enthusiasts believe that lenticular clouds are actually flying saucers in "disguise".
