Alien hunting conspiracy theorists after seeing what they believe the be an extraterrestrial UFO over the capital of England. The original sighting was made by YouTube channel Orion and the clip shows a strange oblong object can be seen hovering perfectly stationary over Lea Bridge, in northeast London.
Orion posted alongside the video: “Mysterious object hovering over Lea Bridge, London.”
Prominent alien enthusiast Scott C Waring quickly picked up on the video, claiming it to be an “exciting” find.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “The object has a bronze tint to it, and I can see a black eye like window on one end, possibly the pilot’s cockpit.
“The shape is more like an insect cocoon than anything else.
“Very rare shape of UFO and being seen in broad daylight makes is very exciting.”
While it is not abundantly clear what the object is, there is likely a more logical explanation.
Due to its shape, the supposed UFO could just be a drone.
Alternatively, it could even be a helicopter which is out of focus in a low quality camera.
While there is no proof that UFOs are here, the sightings and claims from conspiracy theorists can lead to bigger questions.
“Extrapolating from these results leads to a projection of 300 million habitable worlds in our galaxy.
“Each of these Earth-like planets is a potential biological experiment, and there have been billions of years since they formed for life to develop and for intelligence and technology to emerge. Astronomers are very confident there is life beyond the Earth.
“As astronomer and ace exoplanet-hunter Geoff Marcy, puts it, ‘The universe is apparently bulging at the seams with the ingredients of biology’.”
