UFOs over Sidcup? Stunned family film mysterious five donut-shaped objects hovering in the sky over south London
- Mark Banks, 38, and girlfriend Victoria Andrews, 33, saw the flying objects
- They were in top floor when they saw 5 donut-shaped objects floating in the sky
- Mark told MailOnline he has been racking his brains about what they could be
This is the moment a stunned family spotted five mysterious UFOs flying above the south London skyline.
Mark Banks, 38, was at his girlfriend Vicky Andrews’s home near the A2 in Welling with his daughter Aimee, 13, when Vicky spotted the donut-shaped objects out of the window.
They filmed the five objects, which were round with a hole in the middle, hovering in the sky in the Sidcup area at 6.40pm yesterday.
Mark, a postman, said they watched the objects for around 10 minutes, although they might have been there longer.
He said that as the time went on they went up and floated into the distance and wants an expert to look at the video to offer an explanation as to what the objects are.
In the video, the family are gathered by the window, watching the objects as Vicky said: ‘I told you I saw something the other day.’
Mark is filming the objects floating in the sky as he said: ‘They’ve got a hole in the middle of them’, added: ‘Well, that is f***ing weird.’
Vicky, 33, who is a carer, and Aimee spot five of the mysterious objects in the sky, while Mark can only initially see four, before spotting the last one.

As Mark zooms in on the objects, Vicky asks whether he remembers the one they saw the other day – which he had thought was a seagull.
A few days ago, Vicky saw something else in the sky and didn’t know what it was.
Mark said that this looked different to what they saw last night and explained that it was like a ‘shining light’.
He said that he thought this sighting was a seagull or another bird as you can see the shape changes when the seagull moves, although Vicky didn’t think it was.
Aimee can be heard in the video saying that the objects are ‘definitely drones’.
She said that they ‘look like they are coming closer’ as Mark says that the objects are ‘flipping around’.

Towards the end of the clip, Mark said: ‘That is the weirdest thing I have ever seen,’ while Aimee added: ‘We’ve got some aliens coming.’
Mark told MailOnline that he is racking his brains to figure out what the objects could be, as he is not someone who believes in the extraterrestrial.
He added: ‘I would always like to look for an explanation for what something could be. It was definitely not an airplane, definitely not a helicopter. It definitely wasn’t a drone. They were too high and it wasn’t a lantern because they were black.’
He thought they could be helium balloons with the number zero printed on to them, but said: ‘They seemed far too big to be balloons and obviously if there were five helium balloons with number zeros on, would someone have let five of them off?’
Mark said he is racking his brains to figure out what the objects could be, as he is not someone who believes in the extraterrestrial, but said they weren’t drones, airplanes or helicopters, offering helium balloons as a suggestion but saying they seemed too big to be balloons
‘I don’t really – it doesn’t make any sense. I’ve been racking my brains, I would rather try to explain it than not.
‘But they were far too big to be balloons and they all went off in separate directions so I don’t really see how that would have worked if it was a balloon.’
He added that the objects didn’t strike him as drones as it ‘wasn’t moving in a way that a drone would’, he explained that if a drone was driven with a propeller, it probably wouldn’t be able to flip upside down because of the waiting.
Mark said that it is hard to explain how it felt when he saw the objects floating in the sky and said that straight away he was just ‘trying to justify it’.
He added that he is not someone who would usually film something like this and said that he felt he had to take his phone out to document the sighting and ‘so someone else would believe him’.

He continued: ‘I’m not someone who sort of believes in anything like that anyway so I just wanted clarification as to what they are but it was definitely surreal.
‘It was a weird feeling, it was a feeling that I’ve never felt before because I’m looking at something that you know I never expected to see and it’s changed my opinion now which is quite a strange thing.’
Mark said that the objects in the distance were in the direction of south London and looked like they were flying over the Sidcup area.
