Woman stunned to see cloud shaped like Angel of the North in Sandwich Bay

By KentOnline reporter

This is the astonishing sight of a single cloud in a clear blue sky in the shape of The Angel of the North.

Ruth Crowley, 52, captured the remarkable image at around 4pm yesterday as she strolled along Sandwich Bay.

The cloud image, which bears an uncanny likeness to the iconic landmark, is astonishingly clear against the blue sky.

Ruth was enjoying a coffee on holiday with mum Sheila Crowley, 82, and sister Sarah Davies, 50, when she looked up to see the angel form in the sky.

Ruth, an occupational therapist, from London, says that the beautiful image "remained in the formation for around five minutes" before it disappeared.

She said: "Yesterday we were walking along the Sandwich Bay when all of a sudden I looked up and saw the Angel of the North.

"While I have never seen it in real life, I knew exactly what it was straight away.

"Me, my sister and my mum were in awe, it was such a beautiful sight.

"While the world goes through these dark times, it was just something positive. We were so lucky to spot it."

The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture, designed by Sir Antony Gormley, and is situated in Tyne and Wear, north east England.

It is said that the sculpture was designed to serve as a focus for society's evolving hopes and fears.

Every year, Ruth and Sarah take elderly mum Sheila on a holiday in the Kent area.

This is the first time they have ever seen the clouds form into anything.

Ruth said: "I've never seen anything like this before, I was absolutely stunned."
