‘What is that?’ An unknown “huge” object was filmed flying “straight up” over London – or is it just an optical illusion?
- An unknown object was seen flying vertically over Tooting, London, today
- Graphic designer Gabriella, 26, spotted the strange thing from her window
- The strange figure flew straight up and left a trail of smoke
At least two witnesses reported seeing an unidentified person flying over southwest London earlier today.
Video footage recorded around 4.27pm this afternoon appears to show a gray object flying straight up over Tooting.
A long line appears behind the object in an area of the sky often crowded with aircraft approaching Heathrow
People on the ground could have seen an optical illusion created by a plane flying in the sky, but a witness claims the object was flying ‘straight up’/
The bizarre sighting was made by 26-year-old freelance graphic designer Gabriella, who requested that her full name not be published.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 trailing behind the unidentified object as it moves
She claims she was working on a project in her apartment when she peeked out the window and saw the unusual view, which she said looked like a “rocket”.
In the video, Gabriella can be heard saying, “What is this f**k?”
Gabriella talked about how she caught her eye for the object, telling MailOnline: “It was a mixture of the two, a pastel yellow-orange color – but then this really weird huge object, southwest of Tooting.
There was a long streak of smoke, like a strange cloud rising upward, and then I spotted something massive, dark gray… It was flying straight up to the top, something I had never seen before. I mean, I’ve never seen planes go straight to the top like this. If you see planes, you will generally see that they go through them, not straight.
Gabriella, 26, claims she was working on a project in her apartment when she looked out the window and saw an unusual sight.
“The other thing is the sheer size. I saw about seven or eight planes in the sky at the same time, often flying in the sky here and there near Heathrow and Gatwick.
Some of the planes were obviously closer to my window…but the planes were obviously smaller as well. This means that the UFO in the sky must be enormous. leaked. It was very far away and the planes were very small in comparison.
I think the whole thing lasted for about 2 minutes, I shot it for about 20 seconds, took a picture, and it disappeared after about a minute and a half, so it must have been moving fast.
No one has seen it, as far as I can tell… but I have the video and photo as evidence: I didn’t imagine it. I would like to know what it was. It was very worrying.
