A UK man has spotted a tree that looks clearly out of this world.

Matt Smith, a reader of The Sun, has taken a picture of a tree that bears an uncanny resemblance to ET, the alien hero of Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster.

Smith sent the picture to the newspaper’s online edition after reading about other bizarre tree formations.

"You have to go round the side of the tree to see it. But if you catch it at the right angle it is ET,” he writes.

The picture appears to show a big trunk knotted into the shape of an alien face and Smith says “the rest of the tree is missing”.
