While there are many foreign guests attending the Olympics, was there a UFO at the 2012 London Olympics?
UPDATE: The alleged UFO was the Goodyear Blimp according to Goodyear.
According to the Huffington Post, during the opening ceremony with a fantastic display of pyrotechnics, a clearly seen unidentified flying object was videotaped making its way over London’s Olympic stadium. The object appears to come from the left as the firework show begins over the stadium.
While people are speculating the object is a blimp, as NBC Olympics has chosen Goodyear blimps for all of its 2012 Olympics aerial coverage, the object does not look very similar to a blimp at all.
According to Ministry of Defense UFO desk officer Nick Pope, the Olympics would be a prime opportunity for otherworldly crafts to show themselves, “With the summer of mass events, we are all on high alert for terrorism. But we must also cast our eyes further afield and be prepared for even the most seemingly unfathomable.” Pope also wrote of a conspiracy theory rumor earlier this year that suggested a fake alien attack would be staged at the London Olympics, “A combination of special effects and holographic technology will be used to create the illusion of an alien invasion, the rumor claims. If aliens have studied our psychology, they may choose to appear in our skies on a significant date — the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games is one date being widely circulated by conspiracy groups.”
