Description: Walking into my dark unlit bedroom, a very bright light caught my eye, as I looked out I could see a long oval shaped craft extremely brightly lit, it had a halo of light all around it, it was an unusual white light, not like a light bulb and not like a fluorescent light, it was different to any light I had seen before. The craft was completely still, I could hear no noise, but then I had no windows open.
The craft was huge, I would say at least 20 times bigger than a jumbo jet, it started to move to the right but quickly stopped sharply, then again moved slightly to the right and stopped again [from west to east]. After about 40 seconds it moved like a bullet, going east towards Wembley, but it went so fast I couldn't see it anymore, it was like watching something from Star Trek, it moved so fast.
During that time I was trying to call my husband without me moving, or taking my eyes off of what I was witnessing, but he had the radio on downstairs and so could not hear me. As the craft went from my sight I ran to my landing side window, looking in the direction it was going, but I could not see any sign of it because of the speed it was going. I could see no one in the street at that time that witnessed it also.
