My Close Encounter With UFOs Over Islington

Surreal photos capture what one man believes are visitors from
outer space darting through the skies above Islington - the
second UFO spotting in the borough this year.

Dennis Gray, 33, a car dealer who lives in Sebbon Street,
Islington, has told of the "deep sense of calm" he felt after
capturing the startling images from his front window.

He claims he saw a floating orb and a triangle shaped craft
hovering above the Angel in broad daylight.

Though initially worried about speaking out in case he became
the "laughing stock of Islington", Mr Gray has decided to tell
the world about his "close encounter".

He said: "I looked out of the window and saw this sphere pop out
from behind a cloud and start zooming across the sky. It was
like it was watching me, but I was not scared at all. It looked
a bit like a meteorite, but then it started drawing pictures in
the clouds.

"I never believed in all this sort of stuff before it happened
to me. I told my friends and they thought I was having a laugh.
But when I showed them the photos they were all amazed."

It is the second time this year that mysterious objects have
been seen above Islington. In February Archway was brought to a
standstill by a "squadron" of floating lights, although many
believe they were no more than glowing balloons.

Mr Gray said: "When the Archway sighting happened a lot of
people thought they were lanterns and I can accept that. But
what I saw was no lantern. I had contact with an alien being -
 I'm sure of it. I felt a comfort like no other."

One of the photos appears to show a meteorite-like streak of
flame in the sky, while Mr Gray says two figure-like shapes in
the clouds were the result of the craft's artistic endeavour.

Paul Southcott, of the Islington-based UFO and Supernatural
Studies group, has over 30 years experience in the field and
thinks the sighting should be taken seriously. He said: "Amber
orbs are often followed by a triangle in the sky. That makes me
know he is not mucking about. It sounds like a proper sighting
to me."

But he admitted that a UFO doing "paintings" was completely
unheard of, adding: "I have never heard of them painting
pictures - that's a new one. I would be happy to talk to him
about his experience though. Sometimes people get a bit stressed
out after a sighting and would like someone to help them through
