UFO mystery on Plaistow’s Greenway?

11:43 16 June 2011

East London isn’t usually associated with sightings of UFOs or alien craft but there’s a first time for everything and a quick thinking teenager captured these images.

What they show is anybody’s guess though. Harry St Louis was on his way home in the Greenway on the night of June 8 when he saw the large, bright light. At first he thought it was a firework but quickly discounted the theory as it continued to weave across the sky.

Harry, 19, who lives inMemorial Avenue, Stratford, then recorded the object’s movements on his phone and put the resulting video on YouTube, where unsurprisingly, it has scored thousands of hits, including one from the occupant of a Stratford flat who also witnessed the sight and another from Ilford.

He told the Recorder: “It was silent but considering it was so far away it was quite big. I must have been watching it for 30-40 seconds then I got my phone and recorded it for about 26 seconds. Then the flame disappeared and there were just these two dots with one coming in from the right hand side and then they went off at about 45 degrees.”

And although he has researched the sighting, he is still without anything to explain it, leaving him to conclude that it must be a UFO which as he points out, stands for an Unidentified Flying Object.
