UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

December 24th 2008 : Uddingston, Lanarkshire, Scotland

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Uddingston/Lanarkshire, Scotland

Date: 24/12/08

Time: 8.00pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 6

Shape of objects: round orange lights

Weather Conditions: frosty night, clear sky, some very high cloud.

Description: saw 2 orange lights in sky quite far apart but on same trajectory and travelling at same speed. Odd as it was cutting across flight path to Glasgow airport. Then another 3 similar lights followed in perfect triangular formation. All kept same distance apart and on same course as other 2. Then the 6th object moved over a good bit bigger than the rest. All 6 stayed on same course same speed, same distance apart. Moved higher in sky until disappeared. I was driving with my 21 year old daughter - stopped the car, turned radio off - no sound from engines etc. We were totally freaked out. Have since spoken with 4 more people who also saw this in Christmas Eve in our area.


UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:


Thank you for sending me this website. I have had a good long look at it. The lights we saw were orange and round shape, They were all travelling at the same speed, keeping perfect distance between them, They were not 'jiggling' around like the balloons on the website. The formation and speed seemed to be very precise. I really haven't got a clue what they were. Don't knows if you have had sightings in the middle of a local authority housing estate in mid Lanarkshire before. I don't think they were like the balloons on the clip. I have also bought the local newspapers and nothing recorded there. I cant believe more people didn't see them and report this.
