Footage of strange lights in the sky over London has generated great interest online this week.
The video was uploaded to Youtube by a motorist who described how he'd stopped for a short time to film the object. "Seems too bright for a boat and looked like it was above water," he said. "It was a very long way off and I was at full 40x zoom hence the shaky footage." Opinions are divided on what the footage shows, with theories ranging from a deliberate hoax to something that is genuinely 'out of this world'.
"Footage of a flickering orb hovering over the Thames Estuary was caught by a passing motorist on February 5."
