Dozens of people have now contacted us about Sunday's night's strange lights - including a teenager with video footage.

Aaron Rhys Jenkins from Osterley saw three lights hovering above him at the Ashford Roundabout on New Year's Eve at around 3am and recorded them on his camera phone as he watched in awe.

After reading about the recent sightings in the Chronicle he was reminded of the hair-raising experience and handed over this amazing video footage that we have posted in the Your Videos section in Video and Pics.

The 16-year-old said: "It was like two of them flew up and then the other one kind of came and joined them, then they all came into the middle - I think these sightings are the same thing."

Other calls from people who saw the strange lights include:

Rosina and David Wells, of Beavers Lane, Hounslow, called in to say they spent a long time watching the lights and were convinced there were no beams.

Linda Chester, from Feltham, said: "I heard a rumbling noise and when I looked up I saw these blue, grey lights."

Mr Morrison, of Southville Road, Bedfont, said he thought he was seeing little clouds until they started moving.

John Holland, from Heston, drove from Feltham to Hanworth and then back to Heston on Sunday night and said the lights were clearly visible that whole time. "It was pretty strange," he added.

Michelle Baxter, of Raleigh Road, Feltham, said: "We thought they were lights from the funfair at Hanworth Carnival, but I'm really surprised people could see them from the other end of the borough."

Gulsheen Kaur, of Jersey Road, Hounslow, said: "My husband and I didn't think anything of it at first we just assumed it was a spotlight. But later we realised there had been no beam and we got scared."

On Wednesday Mr A Singh from Southall emailed us about his experiences on July 7:

"This is not a joke, I'm sure other Southall residents can confirm the following I saw with my own eyes from my garden.

"Around 12:30 am: 5/6 lights going anti-clockwise to the left of the blue gas tower near the bright star, they were faint like small bright clouds going in formation anti-clockwise, joining into one and coming out again, looked like spotlights but who would have spotlights up at this time?

"A bright laser kind of light shot out for a second or two the vanished, people saw this from all sides of Southall, some sort of light did fire out of the middle of the formation from in the cloud, not under it, people in old Southall reported seeing a bright flash at around 12.55am."

And Rosa Hawkes emailed us with her explanation:
 
"I saw the lights from my back garden in Hamiton Road, Feltham, and know exactly what they were as I watched them for about 20 minutes or so.
 
"When I first saw the main light, I wondered what on earth it was, as it did look very spooky. It was then joined by two smaller lights from the side. The lights came together and merged before splaying back out and seperating again. I saw this for at least 20 minutes or so, and having seen the exact same shows in Las Vegas and Florida, can confirm that itwas nothing more than a light show with a high powered laser light typebeam.
 
"I called my husband out to watch it and I said to him that he must seeit as somebody is bound to claim a UFO sighting, when it was clear forall those who've experienced these light shows before, exactly what itwas."

But we have already contacted nearby stadiums, including Twickenham, and none reported any shows.

Meanwhile the web is buzzing with news of the sightings.

And balls are fire have been spotted on the Gatwick and Heathrow flight paths

Recent sightings across London have made it onto the international news circuit , with the most common explanation the growing popularity of releasing chinese lanterns at weddings and festivals.

On Monday Bedfont gran Lynne Martin, of Beech Road, appealed for fellow witnesses after spotting a trio of mysterious lights 'swooping and merging' in the skies above her home at 11pm on Sunday night.

Within minutes Isleworth mum Kimberley Eliadef contacted us, adamant she saw something she could not explain in the night sky on Sunday.

"My neighbour thinks we're all barmy," she said. "But four of us saw itand so did two dog walkers I met in the park. There were threedisk-like lights following each other and moving away, then meeting inthe middle."

Ms Eliadef, of Tolson Road, was so intrigued she contacted TwickenhamStadium to check they were not responsible. But a spokesman insistedthey had no major events or lighting checks scheduled on Sunday.

Hounslow resident Harmeet Sethi also spotted the unidentified objectsflying through the air and was so alarmed he contacted the police.

"I saw them with my friend," said Mr Sethi, of the Great West Road. "Wechecked to see what it was but couldn't find anything and the police weren't interested.

"I tried to take a picture but it wouldn't come out on my camera phone. I just don't know what they could have been."

A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Defence said she was 'not aware' miltary operations going on in the area at the time of the sightings. She said: "The MoD examines reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity.
 
"If required, sighting reports are examined with the assistance of the Department's air defence experts. Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, there is no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported."

A spokeswoman for NATs, the main air traffic controller for Heathrow, said: "There wasn't any unusual activity at that time of evening."
