Picture of the Day 03.08.12 - UFO's

The last few days I have been hearing noise above my house every night, which I thought was helicopters.  I wondered why the police had helicopters out every night and why my neighbourhood suddenly turned into some kind if crime capital.

I finally bothered to look outside this evening and realised the noise wasn't a helicopter, but the strange glowing object in the pictures below.

It was only a giant balloon (for the life of me can't remember what they are called, but had great fun winding the kids up with all sorts of theories about what it might be.


  1. ASA, it may be a blimp maybe? We get a couple of them only during the day rarely, though never at nighttime. Kids are quite gulliable aren't they? ;) Ramadan Mubarak.

  2. I was going to say 'blimp' too, but somebody already did ^

    Allah knows best :)

  3. It could even be a parachute.

    Allahu A'lam.

  4. Zeppelin! But more likely to be a blimp cos they are smaller
    Tell the kids they're flying pinatas :D

  5. That's what I meant! Zeppelin, although it probably was a blimp.

  6. it looks like the same one that was at the Olympic Park the day we went - i've got pics and the colours are the same
