EPPING FOREST: UFO pictured over forest

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: UFO pictured over Epping Forest UFO pictured over Epping Forest

AN 11-year-old boy has sparked debate between sky-gazers after snapping a UFO hovering over Epping Forest.

On Sunday, May 27, Jack Brody was playing in the garden of his family home in Loughton, when he noticed a tiny silver object glittering in the clear blue sky far above.

Jack ran inside, grabbed a camera and took a photograph of the object.

Jack’s father Simon, 39, said: “I got back from a walk and Jack ran up to me and said ‘you will not believe what I got a picture of.

“He pointed at this thing that was so small that you could barely see it. It was up there glimmering in the sun.

“When we zoomed in and looked at the picture closer I said to my friend, who was visiting, ‘you have to come and see this.’ “ “We just could not work out what it was. It is a kind of silver circular thing. It is very odd.

“We have heard some people say that it must be a weather balloon, but the way it moved I just don’t think it could have been.

“When a plane came close to it it was there one minute and the next minute it was not, you could not hear it fly off, you just could not see it again.

“It is funny, committed UFO spotters who spend years trying to get pictures would not be able to get one that is that good.”

Probably some sort of micro drone. The Police are using them for surveillance now.

More likely to be an inflated rubbish sack.

Look at it upside down and it looks like an irregular toilet seat.

I'm afraid that's not an alien space craft. That is one of the UK's new survelliance drones. GOOGLE them and you'll see pictures and information. The Orwellian nightmare is finally here.

Yea, unfortunately they don't look anything like this. The object here is missing the propeller blades & pylons to hold them. Also according to the report, the craft took off at very high speed which is unlikely to be a drone. They are slow and very noisy.

I did, and it looks nothing like this?!? (Where's the propellors? The pylons to support them?)

Certainly interesting and who knows? But it would be nice to see the original unenhanced photo too. It's NOT helpful from a credibility standpoint to see ONLY a cropped/enhanced version. And no, it doesn't look like one of OUR surveillance drones.

By definition it is a UFO.
Until we understand what it is, it will remain classified as such. If no identification is possible, it is either some military secret or not of this Earth. If forced to make a choice between the two, I would choose the second option.

Looking at google earth, this 'Epping forest' is nothing but a small patch of woods. The farm I grew up on in Indiana had a patch of woods nearly that size. To me 'forest' connotes a contiguous patch of trees of more considerable size than that. Next thing they'll call it Epping wilderness area!! Good grief....

Epping forest is 12 miles long and 3 miles wide. You must have lived on a big farm!
