A holidaymaker claims to have caught the moment a giant hovering ' UFO ' appeared in a red cloud in the sky.
The scene stopped people in their tracks and has been described as like something straight from the latest Avengers film.
Darren Blakeley, 53, captured the bizarre video of the red bowl-shaped cloud formation above where he was staying on holiday in Laguna, Phuket, Thailand on April 22.
The eerie footage shows passersby stood open-mouthed at the solitary floating mass ominously lit up as what appeared to be forks of lightning flashed inside it – in an otherwise clear sky.
The intriguing 54-second clip has racked up more than 1.7million views on social media and 37,000 shares – with many likening it to a scene from box office smash hit Avengers: Endgame.
Online fitness guru Darren, from New Zealand but currently living in Singapore, said: “I started filming as I remember thinking ‘this is crazy interesting’ and that I’d never seen anything like it.
“I believe the off things in the sky are UFOs. Everyone was entranced by what they saw, no-one was talking – they were just awestruck.
“A single cloud formation with no other clouds in the sky drifted through the area, it had lightning appearing within the cloud with occasional thunder.
“This was the only cloud in the sky at that time and it was moving quite quickly.
“It wasn't until after I filmed it and watched the video back that I saw all the strange light activity. It [looks like] it could be something out of a movie.”
Darren said he was thrilled with the reaction he’d had after sharing some of the five-minute spectacle – though some pals living nearby were upset to have missed out on the action.
He said: “Everyone who has seen the video are amazed [by it] and my friends in the area are disappointed I didn't alert them to it at the time.
“It’s really cool knowing the video has gone viral.
“The amazing thing was the weather was calm all around except for this one cloud – otherwise the weather was still and clear.
“When the cloud moved away it was just still and clear the way it was before the cloud arrived.”
Comments on the video quipped it was an alien encounter with an 'alien masking device' and likened it to scenes from the final Avengers film.
Janet Mitchell commented: “Definitely a visitor from outer space.”
Mike Rehu posted: “UFO recharging batteries in electrical storm.”
Jamie Amber commented: “Never seen any cloud formation like this before! Amazing but scary too! Could be a portal and things flying around UFOs.
