The witness was in the Fulham section of London walking to a café when the incident occurred.

“I looked up and saw a star-like object about seven aircraft widths to the left of the passenger aircraft,” the witness stated.“Then noticed several lights to the right of the aircraft. As I looked up: about 7, 12 and 15 aircraft widths to the right. They followed the aircraft and continued to follow it, keeping the same relative distance, as it banked gently toward a more northerly path.”

The witness first thought the objects were balloons.

“At first I thought they were balloons reflecting bright sunlight. I’ve seen some rarely. But these lights remained at a constant speed, had a smooth direction and all turned relative to each other, and at same distance from each other. Also, they seemed to emit a constant light and not reflect it, whereas balloons change intensity as they tilt relative to me/observer and the sun. The aircraft wasn’t landing at a London airport, those are only a few thousand feet above observer-point and the aircraft had a vapor trail and I should imagine it was over 15-20,000 feet above me. Aircraft and light were obscured by city housing then.”

  1. 1. As **(USUAL)** the SUPPOSED / UFO is too FAR AWAY to see what it is, or too SMALL, or a BLURRY picture, or just a LIGHT at (NIGHT) that could be ANYTHING!

    2. CALL me when you get a (CLEAR / DAY) time picture of a UFO!

  2. I live in Paris and I have seen these small Orbs in aircraft vapor trails many times. In broad day light right above the city. The problem is they are quite far up and move (dart) so fast trying to film even with an iPhone 6 Plus is kind of pointless, I would need a much better camera.

    The ease and speed they can move at makes me feel like they are organic, not a machine. They are always moving in and out or around vapor trails from aircraft.

    If you live in or visit Paris I can guarantee you will see one on any day or afternoon.
