'Pink jelly-fish' in sky sparks UFO speculation in Merton

Your Local Guardian: An artist's impression of what the hovering jelly-fish above Merton may have looked like An artist's impression of what the hovering jelly-fish above Merton may have looked like

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 notice 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?”

The author of the post, who responded to our story questioning whether there may be a link between wind turbines and UFOs, claimed the sighting took place at around 8.05am.

On January 4 a 290ft turbine near Louth in Lincolnshire was badly damaged in what enthusiasts claim was a “UFO related incident”, and witnesses reported low flying objects and unusual nights near a wind farm.

The claims of alien activity led enthusiasts to suggest a link between the energy generators and alien craft - and that the turbine at the Merton Abbey Mills shopping centre might be attracting extra-terrestrial visitors.

But a spokesman for the centre, which installed the turbine in March to power the Colour House Theatre, said that no UFOs had been seen recently.

Peter Wallder said: “I can honestly say we haven’t seen anything at all - but I will keep an eye out.” He promised to let the public know if any alien activity was spotted.

In April last year UFOs were reported above Wimbledon, and further sightings were muted in Wandsworth three months ago.

Have you seen any UFO activity?

I reported a UFO sighting in 2006 to UFOinfo, It was also reported in my local Guardian.
This is the report....
Description: I was driving home through Tooting on my way to Micham from work at 8.40pm last night (15th Feb) when I saw 2 lights which I thought were 2 Aeroplanes flying dangerously close together along the same flight path. The second one started to catch up on the first and I though there could be a mid air collision. Then a third light appeared and flew along side them. They all flew together for a few minutes and every so often one would disappear for a couple of seconds and then re appear again. Then they flew closer to each other and appeared to hoover for a while and then all of a sudden they all shot off in different directions. I pulled over to try to take a photo with my camera phone but it was dark and I couldn't as the street lightings glare filled the screen.

I haven't got the guardian article though.
