Xmas Night Sighting

Submitted by colwilson on Sat, 01/31/2009 - 07:51.

Returning from Xmas Day festivities at my parents house, my wife and I were returning home around 7:30 to 8:00pm, and as we entered Linlithgow on the A706 we saw a large bright light in the distance coming in our direction.

At first i just thought it was a helicopter with a search light, but couldn't see any flashing tail lights associated with such aircraft. I stopped the car near the Rugby pitches as it got nearer, and got out the car.

Orange ball in night sky Scotland

I was outside my folks house on Christmas day 2009 having a cigarette and saw an orange ball moving north east towards Aberdeen. As it approached Aberdeen the ball changed course slowly to travel north west of Aberdeen toward Westhill... no sound, no change of light source or colours as it changed course, no flashing.

Thought it was all very strange. At first I thought it might be a helicopter as it moved about the same speed but as it got closer I could not hear the normal helicopter noise. If it was a plane/helicopter there would have been flashing lights and noise.

Please tell me if there is an explanation.

I was driving towards Hallville travelling South when I saw up in the night sky a bright light.  It was a light amber colour, and real close.  At first I thought it was a big light at the top of a tall tower, but out here in the farmer's fields...there are no towers.  So I kept watching it trying to see if it was something and began to slow my car.  As I watched, a second light (looked just like the first) appeared slowly right beside it.  Now I wasn't sure what it was...so I watched even closer.  All of a sudden, the first light slowly went out and the second

I am an anthropologist based in Tanga, Tanzania. I was on my duties taking photos with a family on the 9th of January [7:17pm] when one of the family member pointed to the skies to show us a ‘comet’, but it was an unusual  ‘comet’ so I quickly switched my Samsung to a recording mode and recorded it for about 30 seconds. Though not a powerful recording I was able to record it as it passed by the full bright moon, glowing almost like the moon.

On the same day as an English windfarm was apparently struck by a mysterious object, a resident in the Scottish town of Bonnybridge, already notorious as the UFO capital of Scotland captured this remarkable video as shown on stv.

A friend and I were coming home from another friends house in Mundelein, she was driving and I was shotgun- as we were driving on Buffalo Grove road, I noticed a stationary object in the south east skies. I exclaimed "whats with the UFO?" jokingly, as we both look at the object it begins to morph into diferent colors-  these were not lights that you would see on a plane helicopter blimp or anything- not strobe lights and not LED's.

Hi, we live in the country here in Australia and often watch the jets as they fly over us. Tuesday just gone I was outside with my hubby walking around and looked up as a jet was flying over us heading towards Adelaide(our closest city) flying south east when I noticed a silver round object flying behind the plane back from its jet stream. We could see the plane very clearly , the silver round object followed along and moved off to the left and then moved slightly to the right and then back to the left and disappeared behind the clouds.

More in 2008.

I live near a small airfield. Looking west from my backyard, there are radio tower red flashing lights, to guide the planes.  In 1996 I seen the six lights that were seen in Phoenix ,"The Phoenix UFO Lights," but I seen the lights in Tucson.  Those six lights were near the radio tower as are many I have seen. Usually they light up one at a time, slowly, then all together, and very amber, low in the sky. But this summer I have seen different lights. Flashing brilliant lights, like shooting stars.

532nm Light From Skky

On Dec 6th, around 20:00 me and my wife were sitting in our apartment building when the power flickered. This went on for about 15 sec. before I went to balcony to see what was going on. Then I noticed something I cannot explain. A very wide aqua green light coming down from the sky. Let me note here that I live on putty hill which is one of the highest points in the city. There was also a low cloud coverage. This light  seemed to be powering up cause I could here a humming sound, and then a very bright beam would illuminate the sky.
