As fireworks lit up the nighttime, London sky Friday during the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games, perhaps only a handful of the millions watching around the globe managed to catch a glimpse of a very odd object hovering over the stadium.

As the above video clearly shows, there was an unidentified flying object in the midst of the pageantry, but there's no word yet as to whether it was a blimp in the distance, or in fact, alien life forms trying to get a peek at Hope Solo. Sure, perhaps it's just an unmanned, aerial camera, but dismissing it as such sort of ruins the fun, doesn't it?
