A mysterious object spotted sailing across the sunny skies of Purley has left residents and a UFO expert scratching their heads.

The blurry entity was snapped by John Barrett, 48, as he was walking across Higher Drive Recreation Ground at about 1.25pm last Friday.

His wife Claire, 42, then sent the picture to the Advertiser.

She said: "My husband was taking a walk and looked up at the trees covered in frost from the ice and snow lately, then spotted something moving steadily in the sky.

"It basically kept moving and eventually disappeared in the distance and faded away."

A sighting of "a pink jelly-fish" in the skies above Wimbledon has prompted speculation that UFOs are visiting the area.

On January 9 a visitor to wimbledonguardian.co.uk said: "I looked out my flat window this morning, over towards Merton way, and to my surprise noticed a large bright pink jelly-fish looking object surrounded by a pink haze. It appeared to be hovering over or above the pylons in the distance.

"It hovered for about five minutes while I frantically searched for my camera. Did anyone else in Wimbledon see it? Any explanations?"


UK: UFO sighted in Chorley

Is it a bird, is it a plane or is there something more sinister out there?

They're among the questions amateur photographer Lisa-Marie Fairclough - and several other Guardian readers - are asking after more possible sightings of UFOs above the roof tops in Chorley.

The 16-year-old, from Hallwood Road, Chorley, says she has twice seen a mysterious orange light hovering near her house - with the most recent one being on Friday.

Here is his video:

Indonesia: UFO spotted over a lake by multiple witnesses

Recently we reported a UFO sighting in Argentina involving a number of UFOs seen rising from a lake in the province of Entre Rios on January 2 2009 by numerous witnesses. (Also go here) Now we have received reports of a very similar sighting in Indonesia. The parallels are striking and raise many questions.

A group of eight friends planned to go to a concert in the centre of the regional city of Jember in East Java on December 20 2008. Tickets to the concert were sold out so the group headed back to one of their homes in two cars. Heavy traffic in the centre of the city forced the group to go an alternative route past a lake on the outskirts of the town. One of the cars halted as the driver spotted a remarkable sight above the small lake that they were passing.

Perfect ice circle rotating in the River Otter
An unusual rotating ice circle, normally found in the cooler rivers of Scandinavia or North America, has formed in the UK waterways.

The cause of the rare phenomenon is unclear, with very little scientific evidence available to explain the formation of the discs. UFO-enthusiasts claim that, like crop circles, the perfect discs are created by visiting aliens, but scientists believe the extreme cold weather combined with an unusual current is the more likely reason.


UK: Mother and daughter's 'serene' UFO sightings

"It had been so quiet," said Tessa. "There hadn't been a sound all day. There was an incredible stillness in the air. As I watched, the lights started to become larger and brighter - really dazzlingly bright - as one light moved on top of the other, forming a bell-shaped object, the size of a largish house, with what looked like a thin, shiny metal base.

A woman from Polruan spotted a UFO hovering over Fowey around the same time as other myserious sightings were made across the country.

UK: UFO spotted over Dumfries

Boxing Day became a night to remember for one young local and his family when they spotted two UFOs over Dumfries.

Macaulay Moodycliffe was setting out to the nearby chip shop from Preistlands Drive where he lives when he spotted strange lights in the sky. He was so awe-struck he ran home to get his family, who also claim to have seen the objects.

Macaulay, who is 16, told the Standard: "They were large orange balls with a circle of orange glow around them that was given off by the light. They appeared to be moving slowly but when I looked closer and I could see a plane in the sky and it was clear they were moving very fast indeed, a lot faster than the aeroplane in the sky."
