UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

Early 1980s : Stromness, Orkney Islands, Scotland

Stromness In The Orkney Islands Of Scotland Deep Red Glowing Sphere

Date: 1980's
Time: Evening.

Hello Brian, Whilst surfing the web I discovered a UFO site that mentioned Glowing Red Spherical UFO. This is a subject close to my heart as in the early 1980's I saw a deep red glowing sphere of light swoop down over the town, this had a smaller sphere rotating around it in an orbit fashion. It was around and 100 feet in diameter (guess) and the small one may have been 5-10 feet. I remembered seeing it after reading the book "Communion" by Whitley Streiber and as I read it I had a flashback type memory of the incident. The strange thing is, I have no recollection of the moments prior to the sighting or after the sighting and I did not remember anything about this until almost 10 years after the effect! My pal remembers it being dark orange. Drop me an email if you like.

Hi again

I saw the large, deep red glowing Sphere when I was a young lad over a town called Stromness in the Orkney islands of Scotland. At a guess, the thing was travelling at around a couple of hundred feet and like I said, was silent. I think it was headed in a south westerly direction. I did not mention/or remember seeing this thing until approx: 10 years after the event. I don't know what it was, but I was left shaken and paranoid after the flashback memory. My Father has seen several UFO's over the Orkney Islands since we moved there in the mid 1970's. I never mentioned this sighting to him until after the memory, my friend was there too and he remembers seeing a deep orange light. I try not to dwell on this too deeply as I get trouble sleeping so I better sign off for the night. I get up at 5am to work at 6. I will endeavor to try and remember anything else and make a drawing using Microsoft Paint. Speak soon.

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
