Residents in Islngton and Archway (London) spotted dozens of mysterious lights in the sky on Thursday evening, which appears to have caused a bit of panic.
A story in the Islington Gazette reports 10 to 15 lights were seen moving in a southerly direction before stopping, hovering for about ten minuets and then moving up into the sky and out of sight.
Local Police contacted the Oxford-based Contact International UFO Research group who said they had had other witness call them reporting the same thing.
Was this a formation of planes, UFOs or just a elaborate prank made out of illuminated balloons?
