09 February 2007 Avvistamento di ovni sui cieli di Londra
The mysterious lights-WE HAVE extraordinary video footage giving first-hand evidence of the Archway UFO phenomenon which brought the area to a standstill. Here's YOUR chance to decide whether aliens were actually hovering over Archway - or whether there was a more innocent explanation. Amateur camerman John Zimmerman, of Bredgar Road, Archway, filmed the spectacle from a vantage point in Holloway Road.
The "squadron" of around 15 orange lights spread panic among passers-by who witnessed it at around 5.30pm on January 31. People screamed - some fearing it was a terrorist attack. Police received 999 calls within minutes. The lights moved in a southerly direction then hovered above Archway before disappearing and appearing again. The eerie display lasted about 10 minutes.
Mr Zimmerman, 50, said: "I was watching from Holloway Road. I realised I had my camera and started filming. They moved steadily and slowly, all at the same speed."
Experts from the Royal Astronomical Society and Met Office weather centre were at a loss to explain the lights. UFO sceptics insist it was no more than a group of "sky lanterns" or "UFO balloons" - one-off miniature hot air balloons.
But all the eyewitnesses who contacted us are adamant the lights were NOT lanterns - because of the way that they moved. Designer James Zafar, from Palace Road, Crouch End, who witnessed the scene from Bredgar Road, said: "It is something I can't explain but I'm sure it wasn't lanterns."
