UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

1978/1979 : Balgay Hill, Dundee, Scotland


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Above the field beside Balgay Hill in Dundee Scotland.

Date: Around 1978-1979

Approach Direction: It was static above the field at Balgay Hill in Dundee

Departure Direction: Over The River Tay Then Just Vanished

Witness Direction: In The Field Facing The Hill

Description: I was only about 11 years old but remember it very clearly. I had been in the field with friends, they had ran a bit ahead of me and couldn't hear me shouting to them to look up. They went down towards the garages to hang out where the sky wasn't in full view but I stayed where I was just staring up because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was round and greyish in colour with just a few tiny white lights on the edge. It was totally silent, and it was very low in the sky as I was able to see some sort of lettering on the underside. It then shot towards the direction of the River Tay then totally vanished into thin air. None of my friends ever believed a word of it. Next day at school another boy in my class at Ancrum Road Primary had said he had seen the same thing but nobody would believe him either. I had gone on about it so much to my parents that they phoned Leuchars and were told it was just my imagination and there was nothing up there or they would have picked it up on their radars or whatever they use. It has been a source of amusement for may years with my friends and I am still teased to this day about seeing UFO's. I doubt anybody will ever believe me on that one. I know what I saw though and I have never seen one since, however I always do still look up to the sky when I'm walking the dog through the field.

Color/Shape: Round, greyish in colour with a few very tiny white lights on edges and lettering on underside, totally silent.

Height & Speed: Wouldn't like to say but it wasn't very high up, maybe as high as a helicopter usually is. Departure was slow to start then it just shot off and vanished.

TV/Radio/Press: I don't know if it was reported in the press etc as I was only 11 year old and really didn't read newspapers etc, however I was always told it was my imagination but I know it wasn't.
