When considering the advances associated with today’s modern visual effects technology, not to mention the draw of potentially instant Internet fame and ease of access, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to get excited about UFO sightings.

Still, the following display that reportedly illuminated the skies above London earlier this month is certainly worth watching at least once—before then dismissing it as just another slick piece of sensationalist click-baiting.

Posted to clip-sharing service YouTube (of course) by user ‘alymc01’, the following video reveals a number of unidentified objects whizzing through the clouds high above the home of BBC Radio 1 on a beautiful June day.

“Right—took over a week to get it… but finally managed to get these critters on camera on a clear day, and even get a close-up,” the video’s accompanying explanation outlines. “It seems to be attracting quite a crowd now when they appear. Can anyone explain when on earth these lights are please.”

The clip also shows a small gathering of people watching a much larger (or closer) disc-shaped object that seems to dip and dive closer to the camera a couple of times before accelerating from view. It’s all very impressive.

Suitably sceptical yet? If not, it may be worth noting that the footage was captured in close proximity to The Mill and Framestore, two of the world’s leading special effects houses for the movie industry.
