This video and the other one, a clip taken from SkyNews TV's
opening day fireworks show, are the only ones I am aware of that
depict one or more unknown bright lights in the sky (UFOs) over
the Olympic facilities in London.

It is important to note that both these videos were taken far
from the fireworks so as to capture the entire show in a single
panoramic view stretched low across the horizon. Hundreds of
thousands of other people, many with cameras of their own and
much closer (if not directly underneath the UFOs) too must have
taken clearer images of these objects. Where are these other
better images? The reason may be that people recognised these
UFOs for what they appeared to be - blimps, helicopters, etc.
and not something unusual and/or foreign in the sky over London.

With so many anti-aircraft guns and missiles positioned on
London rooftops around the Olympic stadium, if these UFOs were
indeed unknown objects and thus threatening in nature they
would certainly have been fired at.

It is not unusual to observe many such slow moving bright orbs
or irregular shaped points of light low in the sky along the
horizon over a large city such as London, especially in the
direction of distant airports or other huge public events or

Were these unnamed Olympic officials closely associated with
Goodyear blimp people or just expressing reasonable opinions?
What did the Goodyear blimp people and the many thousands of
people directly below the UFO(s) had to say?

>Additionally, the disc-shaped craft lacks the bright, blinking
>anti-collision light of the blimp. What are these aircraft and
>what is their business in our atmosphere?..."

From such a far distance it is difficult or impossible to see or
capture blinking anti-collision lights on video, especially
since the Goodyear blimp is a flying illuminated billboard with
many bright lights that also flash on and off.

While living in Montreal during the 1967 World's Fair I saw a
very similar looking UFO low over my neighbours house at night
that was slowly moving in my direction. My excitement and
concerns were short lived when I recognized it as an airship
with many lights on its sides as it quietly passed overhead...

That said, today I got an e-mail from someone with another UFO
list with a news story that claims UFOs will actually land at
the London Olympics on Saturday, August 4 so the whole world
will knows that they are here!

As this unilateral disclosure event is only a few days away, if
it does happen, then maybe some of those other bright lights or
orbs seen in the sky over London on opening day could have been
scout crafts in advance of the landing...
