HOUNSLOW is known for it's large amount of aeroplane activity however it seems more mysterious types of flying object have also been visiting the borough.
A number of people in Hounslow West have reported seeing a UFO with five lights travelling across the sky, shortly followed by military crafts, and a young woman from Brentford spotted an unnervingly bright light.
Michal Czyz, 28, was barbecuing in his garden on Sunday evening when he and his four friends spotted five unusual lights travelling across the sky for about 10 seconds, before simply disappearing.
"It was really strange, I've never seen anything like it before," said the bar tender from Avvisom Avenue. "Living in Hounslow I know what a plane looks like and this was definitely not a plane. I tried to film it on my phone but my hands were shaking too much."
Mr Czyz's two friends who were on their way back from the corner shop also spotted the lights at around 9pm and saw others filming it in the street. The lights were followed by three military aircraft which Mr Czyz said patrolled the skies for about 30 minutes.
A woman from Brentford, who wishes not to be named, has also had a recent brush with paranormal activity in the borough. While driving home from work on March 20, she saw a strange light descending upon the part of the Great West Road where it first meets the M4.
She told the Chronicle: "The light was so intense and bright that I was momentarily blinded and disorientated. It lasted about five or six seconds and I was too shocked to look again to see if it was indeed a vessel or another object."
The Brentford woman told how the UFO descended vertically and hovered, before either disappearing or zooming off at high speed. The woman says the UFO experience, which is her first, has had a "profound effect" on her and took her over a week to recover from the experience, suffering from regular panic attacks.
"I feel better about it now," she said. "But it would be reassuring to hear if someone else might have seen the same thing."
