‘UFO’ caught on camera by bloke watching King Charles’ Coronation flypast

A photographer claims to have caught a UFO on the camera while taking photos of King Charles watching the Coronation flypast.

Yesterday (May 6) millions around the world watched as Charles was crowned King at Westminster Abbey.

The day was well celebrated by the Brits across the city as more than 10,000 people gathered at The Mall for the famous balcony moment and Coronation fly-past.

However, during the flypast, a 'strange' phenomenon was caught on camera by one of the photographers taking pictures of an aerial display of the Red Arrows.

Simon Balson, 59, spotted what he believes to be a UFO with a 'red top' in one frame after he didn't check the celebration photos due to bad weather until today (May 7).

The images show the Red Arrows aircraft flying towards the Mall in London – but slightly overhead a red object hovers above them.

Simon confirmed that he had 'no idea' what the object is, and also that there have been a 'lot of unexplained sightings' in the area.

He said: "I was shooting some photos from the 13th floor of my apartment building in Limehouse while the red arrows did their fly-over.

"The weather was bad so there were no birds in the air, and I couldn't really see the planes so I didn't check the photos until later. When I did though I spotted this weird object and just thought 'what the hell is that'.

"I enhanced the image and tried to increase the spec to see what it was, it looks like a floating acorn or something. All I could get is that it had a little bit of a red top, but I just have no idea what it could be.

"There have been lots of strange 'UFO' sightings recently, so I thought other people might be able to guess what it was."

The military flypast over Buckingham Palace was scaled down due to low clouds and continuous rain.

The flypast was meant to include 14 waves with 60 aircraft, such as F-35B Lightning and Typhoon FGR4 jets, as well as Spitfires, Hurricanes and a Lancaster.

Later, the Ministry of Defence confirmed that their fleet will be composed of helicopters and the renowned Red Arrows display team.

However, the Red Arrows 'waited until the last minute', and then eventually the plans were modified.

Tom Bould, the squadron Leader, told ITV News: "The whole flypast will be 1,000 feet, so we need the cloud base to just be above that and right now the forecast is on those limits.

"We will get airborne, we’ll go down to the hold and then we will make those weather calls right up until the point where we’re due to be over the top of the palace.

"It’s the British weather, and you never know what’s going to happen."
