Speaking to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old said:

"I was flying back from a work ski trip in Austria, I was on the window seat with two work colleagues beside me.

"They were talking like crazy and I was gazing out the window, as you do. I could see this figure in the distance in front of us and then as we flew closer this shape appeared.

"I asked the ladies beside me to look at it too in case I was seeing things. They too were amazed! I then took some pictures and then the aircraft slowly passed it.

"It was in view for about two minutes as it was a good bit away in the distance. To me it looked like the Michelin man but to be honest I have no idea what it was."

Most commenters believe O'Donoghue's spot was simply an intriguing formation of clouds.
