“What the hell is that?” Unidentified ‘huge’ object is filmed as it flies straight up over the London sky
‘What is that?’ Unidentified ‘huge’ object is filmed as it flies ‘straight up’ over London – or is it just an optical illusion?
- An unidentified object has been spotted vertically over Tooting, London today
- Graphic designer Gabriella, 26, saw the strange object from her window
- The strange shape flew straight up and left a trail of smoke
At least two witnesses have reported seeing an unidentified flight over south-west London earlier today.
Video footage recorded at about 4:27 p.m. this afternoon appears to show a gray-colored object flying straight up over Tooting.
A long contrail appears behind the object in an area in the sky often crowded with aircraft approaching Heathrow Airport
People on the ground could have seen an optical illusion created by a plane flying over, but a witness claims the object flew ‘directly upwards’/
The bizarre sighting was made by 26-year-old freelance graphic designer Gabriella, who requested that her full name not be published.
A long stream of what appears to be smoke can be seen behind the unidentified object as it travels
She claims to have been working on a project in her flat when she looked out the window and saw the unusual sight, which she said resembled a ‘rocket’.
The video clip features Gabriella saying, “What the f**k is that?”
Speaking about how the object caught her eye, Gabriella told MailOnline: “It was the combination of the two, the yellow-orange pastel – but this really strange massive object, southwest of Tooting.
“There was a long trail of smoke, like a weird cloud going up, and then I saw a huge dark gray thing… It flew straight up, something I’ve never seen before. I mean, I’ve never seen planes go straight up like that. When you see planes, you generally see them crossing over, not straight up.
Gabriella, 26, claims to have been working on a project in her flat when she looked out the window and saw the unusual face
“The other thing is the sheer size. I saw about seven or eight planes in the air at a time, you often see planes in the air here, Heathrow and Gatwick are close by.
“Some of the planes were clearly closer to my window… but the planes were obviously smaller too. That means the strange object in the sky must have been huge. Enormous. It was so far away and the planes were minuscule in comparison.’
“I think it all took about two minutes, I filmed it for about 20 seconds, took a picture and about a minute and a half later it was gone, so it must have gone fast.
“No one else had seen it, as far as I know… but I have the video and the photo as proof: I wasn’t imagining it. I’d like to know what it was. It was quite disturbing.’
