More UFOs over Wimbledon?
This is the latest sign of alien activity in the skies above Merton.

The picture was taken by Nicholas Fitter, from his flat on the Broadway last week.

Mr Fitter said: "I was doing my laundry when I saw it.

"I thought it was a balloon at first, but it was as big as a house. I went out on the roof and took some pictures.

"It had tentacles that appeared squid like and even mimicked a squids movement at times. I am sure other people would have seen it too since this jellyfish appeared rather large in broad daylight."


UK: UFO Sighted Over Ravenglass

Strange orange lights in the sky have been reported off Ravenglass - and the North West UFO Research is investigating.

The unexplained lights were seen offshore from Ravenglass on Saturday night (Jan 24) at around 7pm. A man "who has extensive knowledge of the area'' said it wasn't flares and noted there was no noise.

Apparently there were two lights together, then one veered off to the north. He kept watching this light which then dipped down to sea level then up again, before heading off at speed northwards.
