  • Weird ‘Death Star’ in Japan: a Fractus Cloud or a UFO

Alien hunters saw a spherical cloud in Fujisawa that sounds suspicious to several people.

A story about Death Star emerged this month. Alien hunters saw a spherical cloud in Japan’s city Fujisawa. A few claimed that the cloud was created by UFO to get invisible or hidden in the cloud. But, experts had different views about the spherical cloud.

Social media talked about this phenomenon and had picture posts of this cloud. Thousands of people tweeted and commented on social media about the incident.

A person named Poppy discovered the cloud first and captured it. He said in his tweet that he was looking out of the car window, and suddenly saw a round cloud like a ball.

Poppy disclosed the news to Rocket News 24, a local Japanese news channel. He said that, after a while the cloud became more spherical, so he found it weird and took the picture.

People gave different names to the cloud, like Dragon’s Nest and Death Star-style UFO. The phenomenon is not new to spot, because such mysterious cloud was also discovered in North Wales, Tremeirchion, according to BBC. There was also a picture of another spherical cloud on twitter last year.

However, the above views are from general public, because experts don’t believe in such theories. Experts say that sometime a part of large cloud gets separated because of strong winds.

These small clouds are called cumulus Fractus clouds. Experts also say that, the cloud looked spherical due to the angle that was used while taking pictures, because another person took the photograph of the same cloud that looked different in shape.

According to Todd Lane, atmospheric scientist from the University in Melbourne, ‘I can’t detect the origin of the cloud that looked spherical only from one angle. It was lucky for the photographer to capture awesome picture of an unknown cloud.
