UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

July 3rd 2008 : Larkhall, Lanarkshire, Scotland


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Over Larkhall (sighted from Wishaw looking over the Clyde Valley), Lanarkshire, Scotland, UK

Date: 3rd July 2008

Time: 1.36pm

Number of witnesses: One

Number of objects: One/ formation of a few flying together

Shape of objects: Too far away to tell

Weather Conditions: Cloudy/ overcast

Description: Sitting at my computer (next to my window) and something moving caught my eye a good distance away, say 2-3 miles. It would be visible one minute, then not the next, probably due to distance, cloud, light. Moving back and forth in a circle. It done this for a few minutes and then I couldnt see it any more. It did occur to me that it may be racing pigeons having been released, as my grandfather used to keep them and the movements where very similar, where they take to the sky and circle for a bit to get their bearings, though whatever it was moved in cicles very fast. Just thought it would be worthwhile reporting it anyway, as due to the distance and speed, racing pigeons, although a good candidate, may not be accurate and I cant think of anything else mechanical that moves and turns that fast. I can see a plane heading in the exact location of the sighting now, private plane. The time is 2.01pm. (same day) please dont print my name/email, but contact me if you want.

Additional information:

Hi, I submitted a report to ufoinfo.com earlier this month. I would like to update a little info to it, which may be relevent, or not.

The sighting was, the way I view it from my house, directly over a windfarm with several turbine windmills, which lie on the horizon from my vantage point. Now, I do not know how far away they are from me, or if the sighting was directly over them, further away, or closer, as it was difficult to judge. I said earlier that it was over the town of Larkhall, as this is directly in the path of my line of view between here, and where the ufo was, but this may not be accurate. Just thought it worthwhile mentioning. Thanks for your time.
