Spooked Pete Burford was chopping wood when the face of the alien in Steven Spielberg’s hit 1980s blockbuster stared back at him.
He quickly called shocked wife Sylvia after making the discovery in the trunk of a poplar tree at his yard in Elderfield, near Tewkesbury, Glos.
Pete, 72, of Staunton, Glos., said he was completely stunned when the image stared right back at him.
He said: ”It’s probably just one of those things in the tree, but it so looks like E.T. I couldn’t believe it.”
Wife Sylvia, 73, quickly remembered seeing what looked like a UFO 40 years ago and now the couple believe extra-terrestrials are trying to get in contact.
Apparently Jesus and the Virgin Mary are on vacation so the aliens are picking up the slack. I’d better keep a look out lest a yeti try sticking its face in my toast.
