A spherical cloud was seen hovering over Fujisawa, Japan last week. Some claimed a 'Death Star' UFO created the cloud to hide from humans. Experts say it is a small bit of a larger cloud that was separated by strong winds

A bizarre spherical cloud was spotted hovering over a city in Japan last week. 

The phenomenon has since sparked the curiosity of conspiracy theorists who believe a 'Death Star' UFO created the puff as a shield - allowing it to observe humans without being seen. 

However, experts have been quick to respond to these claims, saying the sighting may be a small portion of a larger cloud that was separated by strong winds.

HAT COULD IT BE? 

Todd Lane, an atmospheric scientist from the University of Melbourne told Science Alert that the bizarre shaped cloud is most likely some form of a cumulus fractus cloud. 

These small, ragged cloud fragments are usually found under an ambient cloud base. 

They form or have broken off from a larger cloud, and are sheared by strong winds, giving them a jagged, shredded appearance. 

The clouds form between 8,000 to 20,000 feet and they usually appear when warm air from the ground rises to meet cooler air in the sky.

The peculiar cloud was reported earlier this month in the city of Fujisawa, which is just south of Tokyo, Japan. 

Images snapped of the strange sighting have caused a frenzy across the internet, as many want to know what was floating in the sky. 

Scott C Waring, creator of UFO Sightings Daily, weighed in on the discussion on Wednesday. 

'This sphere cloud was seen over Japan last week and it's holding together especially well,' he shares in a blog post. 

'Cloud like this are often made by UFOs that want to hide, yet come especially close so they can scan and observe the humans on the ground.' 

Waring continues to explain that since this cloud was formed by a UFO, it has the ability to stay together for hours, whereas natural clouds change shapes 'second by second'. 

However, the photographer who captured the puff in the sky said it started to lose its shapes while they were taking the pictures – then it quickly faded as if it never existed, reports Science Alert. 

'When I looked out of the car window I saw a round ball-shaped cloud. I gazed at the cloud for a while then I rushed to take the photo,' Twitter user @pmxpvrtmx (Poppy) told local Japanese news outlet, Rocket News 24. 

'When I saw the cloud it was an even more spherical shape, so I regret not taking the photo more quickly.'

This theory coincides with another picture that claims to be of the same sighting, but just of a different angle. 

In this image, the cloud seems to be less spherical and more like a jagged piece.

Others have suggested that it was nothing more than a roll cloud (pictured) – a type of arcus cloud-low horizontal formation that is a result of a cold front and is usually associated with thunderstorms

Others have suggested that it was nothing more than a roll cloud – a type of arcus cloud. 

These are low horizontal formations that result from a cold front and are usually associated with thunderstorms. 

And depending on the weather conditions, this type of cloud, 'can last for several hours and extend for several hundred miles,' Stephen Corfidi, a meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), told National Geographic. 

Although this theory may be more believable than it being a hidden Death Star, roll clouds are usually cylinder shaped and not spherical.
