O.K. I just got this google alert and I don't know whether or not the publication is reputable or not. Possibly not because I think our friends across the pond would have posted this tidbit on ATS already.

Here's the link with a picture possible. Apparently, a "squadron" of ufo's were spotted over the Archway/Islington area and caused enough stir to stop some traffic for gawkers. Is this a suburb of Greater London?

Somehow the word "squadron" and "ufo's" in the same sentence gives me the jeebies.....

Like I said before, please feel free to let me know if this news rag is trash or if the story has already been discussed!

Peace to all!

There's been no word on the topic here in Europe.

hope this isn't some fluke.
I'd like to see them.

Interesting pic from your link, no doubt.

I'm sure the experts will soon be checking this out.

Why does the Phoenix Lights come to mind over this?

The picture looks like some of the activity that was documented in Mexico, but to a lesser degree.

Here's the thread.

I'll be honest. From the picture alone i'd make the assumption it's a couple of stars and nothing out of the norm.

Probably a websites/newspaper or w/e it is, looking for publicity.

Until there's a video that's going to be my 2 pence on the wholet hing.

The "Contact International" UFO reporting outfit quoted in the story has NOTHING about this sighting on their webpage so I doubt this is for real.

I don't know if the ufo report is true or not, but since when have you seen stars shine that bright through clouds, when it's not even 100% dark yet??

Squadron of UFO's over London and I bet all we get are a few hazy images.



Continually confounded how UFOs escape the media trap from which nobody else may find freedom.

Cool...

I'm near there and my office window faces that direction.... so I've turned the lights out and I'll keep an eye out while I'm working this evening. (camera and binoculars at the ready!)

FWIW that has been pretty much on the approach path to heathrow the last few days. Planes have been flying south over islington before turning west over central London to land.

edit: but today it seems they're going east west..

Iv'e just shot a movie of a plane going by as a reference, on my little canaon digital camera. It's not v clear at all but i was able to leave the camera stable so frame averaging should reduce the noise...

All ready now for my Third Encounter (I've a fresh mug of tea and everything!)

btw, yes this is an area of north london, around 2-3 miles north of the centre.

I haven't but it's easily edited without ANY distortion

Feather around the sky with the polygonal lasso tool.

Image > Edit > Selective colour ... Choose the 'colour' white, and slide the bar to the left side of the screen.

And that's it, you have 'bright' stars.

Springer...



The front page of their site says they are having a "refit" currently to update new sightings. Since this sighting just happened yesterday, it's quite possible they just need time to get the story on.

Come now, Mr. Springer, not all websites can compare to the standards you have set for yours.

How odd.... I was referred to this thread, by this one:

D4rk Kn1ght's Picture Taken by His Wife on 25/1/07.



Similar event?

He claims it was also taken in London.

hmmmm...With all these different sightings starting to pour in I would say the 2007 is really getting off to a wonderful start. I hope these sighting will be exponential and then we will all be in the know.

Thanks for posting this info.

I wonder why the conflict with the witness' statements? Not a good sign, IMHO.


Unidentified flying orange objects stopped traffic and left residents staring skyward in disbelief at around 5.30pm on Thursday.

"He said he saw between 12 and 15 orange lights travelling across the sky."

Oh yes, indeed a horrible, horrible sign, since historically UFO LIGHTS haven't been known to change color or anything like that.

Hi Springer,

Like several other established UFO groups in the UK, Contact International has not been very active in recent years.

Nothing can be inferred from the absence of details on Contact International's website, which is not updated that frequently.

This does not mean that I consider this event anything to get excited about. The description of the orange lights travelling across the sky together without making any sound is a fairly classic description of prank fire balloons (or balloons with lights attached) - which have become increasingly popular in the UK in the last few years. See, for example, the news report (in relation to a previous "UFO" incident) on the BBC website at the link below:
news.bbc.co.uk...

Prank "UFO" fire balloons have traditionally been made by using transparent, lightweight plastic laundry bags with birthday candles propped at its base by drinking straws, wires or balsa wood structs. When the candles are lit, the hot air makes the bag rise.

More sophisticated fire balloons / thai lanterns can now be purchased from commercial suppliers, such as the one below:
www.weddinglanterns.co.uk...
www.ribbands.co.uk...

The duration for the current sighting (said to be about 10 minutes) is consistent with this explanation. Ufologist Allan Hendry (author of the very informative book "The UFO Handbook") refers to 14 reports of UFO caused by prank fire balloons, stating that those 14 sightings had durations of perceived flight from one to 15 minutes.

Fire balloons have been discussed by the authors of several UFO books and several skeptical books.

They are also discussed in some detail in the Condon Report.

See, for example, the discussions of Case 45 at pages 605-606 (in Section 4, “Case Studies”, Chapter 2) and pages 458-465 (in Section 4, Case Studies, Case 18) of the version of the Condon Report available online at the links below:
ncas.sawco.com...
www.project1947.com...

Please note: Since they are a fire hazard, I understand that such products are illegal in several states in the USA.

Kind Regards,

Isaac Koi

The picture's too low res, but I'm pretty sure those aren't stars. What they look like to me is a reflection in a window.

Looks like stars in the sky. But it helps that there are so many witnesses that they spread panic.

I have to say that the left end of that first photo looks suspiciously like the handle of Ursa Major.

Sorry, but I'm pretty certain some of those lights are UM.
