London, May 16 : A woman in London claims that she has seen an alien spaceship hovering over Golders Green.
Her claim comes at a time when the Vatican has conceded that aliens may exist in space.
The woman who introduced herself as Roberta also clicked pictures of the mysterious object.
"I saw this thing, which looked like a jellyfish, from my window between 8.30pm and 10pm one day last week," British tabloid The Sun quoted her as saying.
"My first thought was that it could be a kite or a balloon, but it didn't move like a kite. It completely defied gravity," she added.
The paper revealed Roberta contacted its official website with the spaceship sighting claim, and even emailed it the pictures she had clicked.
The Ministry of Defence has declined comment on the spaceship-sighting claim.
"We examine reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity," said a ministry spokesman.
"Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, there is no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported," he added.
Meanwhile, Pope's astronomer Gabriel Funes has agreed that aliens may exist.
"The search for forms of extra-terrestrial life does not contradict belief in God," Father Funes said in a Vatican newspaper article.
The respected scientist, who is also the director of the Vatican Observatory near Rome, said that the existence of intelligent beings created by God might be possible in outer space.
He said that some aliens "could even be free from original sin".
