A flying saucer shape was spotted in an Arizona sky — and it left TikTok users wondering if it actually was extraterrestrial.

The 11-second TikTok video posted on July 15 that now has 3.5 million views captures a strange shape in Tempe’s blue sky.

“What is that?” a person in the video is heard saying.

TikTok users took no time to suggest it was something from beyond this world.

“That my friend is a mothership,” one user commented.

Another user wrote, “I would’ve stood under it bc I’m done with this planet rn.”

Others wondered if it was part of an ad campaign for a new Jordan Peele movie called “Nope.”

But many users also pointed out that they thought the UFO-shaped figure was just a cloud.

“That’s a lenticular cloud. They most often form around mountains but can be found pretty much anywhere. They look like UFOs,” another user wrote.

An Arizona meteorologist agrees.

“It’s hard to tell, but I think what it is is what we call a lenticular cloud,” Marvin Percha, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Phoenix, told The Arizona Republic.

Lenticular clouds typically occur when “stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains,” creating a UFO-looking shape, according to EarthSky.

“But they can occasionally occur in other situations if you have an unstable layer in the atmosphere,” Percha told The Arizona Republic.
