Archway UFO Video: You Decide

We have extraordinary video footage giving first-hand evidence
of the Archway UFO phenomenon which brought the area to a

Here's your chance to decide whether aliens were actually
hovering over Archway - or whether there was a more innocent

Amateur camerman John Zimmerman, of Bredgar Road, Archway,
filmed the spectacle from a vantage point in Holloway Road.

The "squadron" of around 15 orange lights spread panic among
passers-by who witnessed it at around 5.30pm on January 31.

People screamed - some fearing it was a terrorist attack. Police
received 999 calls within minutes.

The lights moved in a southerly direction then hovered above
Archway before disappearing and appearing again. The eerie
display lasted about 10 minutes.

Mr Zimmerman, 50, said: "I was watching from Holloway Road. I
realised I had my camera and started filming. They moved
steadily and slowly, all at the same speed."

Experts from the Royal Astronomical Society and Met Office
weather centre were at a loss to explain the lights.

UFO sceptics insist it was no more than a group of "sky
lanterns" or "UFO balloons" - one-off miniature hot air

But all the eyewitnesses who contacted us are adamant the lights
were NOT lanterns - because of the way that they moved.

Designer James Zafar, from Palace Road, Crouch End, who
witnessed the scene from Bredgar Road, said: "It is something I
can't explain but I'm sure it wasn't lanterns."
