Bo'ness, West Lothian, Scotland Bright Flickering Orange Colored Light

Date: January 15, 2006
Time: Approx: 9:30 p.m.

Message: I live in Bo'ness, a small town in West Lothian, Scotland. My house stands in an elevated position overlooking, northwards, the beginning of the estuary of the river Forth, which at this point, is about 4 miles wide.

Yesterday evening at about 9.30 pm my wife and I noticed a bright flickering orange colored light in the sky. (we do not close the curtains). It seemed as if something was ablaze but not exactly similar to a fire. At fist I thought of a hot air balloon but the flame (if that's what is was) was not concentrated upwards. It appeared to be about 400 yards away (but that's a guess). I went out into the garden. There was no noise, no engine sounds. It seemed to be falling in an uncontrolled fashion but then moved upward, again, unevenly. It did this several times but then I noticed it was rapidly moving northwards away from us. across the river, and over the county of Fife. As it was moving directly away, it was not possible to get any real idea of speed, only due to the diminishing size did I assume if was moving away. It rapidly disappeared. The sky was black with a light cloud cover. There were no light on the river, no ships. We had a good clear uninterrupted view.

Anyone else in West Lothian or Fife see this ? Any guesses as to what it might have been ?

Thank you to the witness for their report.
