Woman Spots 'Amazing' Cloud That Looks Like Shape Of UK

A sharp-eyed Brit has shared a spectacular photo of a cloud in the shape of the UK, which she spotted from her garden yesterday.

A Facebook user called Rachel Louise shared the photo to the Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas page, and later it was shared elsewhere on social media and soon went viral.

If you look closely at the outline of the cloud, it bears a strong resemblance to the outline of the UK, which includes England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Rachel told LADbible she clocked the unusual cloud in her back garden in Ipswich, Suffolk, yesterday in the late afternoon.

After it was posted on The Manc's Facebook page, many people commented to say they thought the image was 'amazing' and 'cool'.

Someone joked: "Looks like Wales has decided to leave."

Others said it reminded them of something else, with one saying: "Looks more like a T Rex after standing barefoot on an upturned electrical plug."

Referring to the recent thunderstorms, a third added: "If that's not a sign that the weather has it in for us right now then I don't know what is."

Recently there was another spectacle in the sky - though the remarkable cloud spotted that time wasn't caused by nature, but by SpaceX.

The aerospace manufacturer launched another 58 Starlink satellites the other day, and the rocket's exhaust created an incredible rainbow-coloured cloud over the sky.

On Saturday morning at 5.21am Eastern Time (9am GMT), the skies over Florida were still dark enough to catch a Falcon 9 rocket beaming more satellites into space as part of the Starlink-8 mission.

Elon Musk's space exploration company is putting the satellites into orbit in an bid to deliver high speed broadband to the whole of the earth before the end of 2020.

Starlink-8 was the eighth batch of satellites to go up, also marking the company's 540th satellite that has been put into space.

The rocket could be seen taking off from Cape Canaveral in Florida, then ascending up over the Atlantic Ocean, creating a glowing cloud, which people in multiple states, as far as Alabama could see.
