Full Description of event/sighting: In the summer of July 1995, myself and colleague Peter Wilson decided to form a UFO group in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, UK. It all started on the 29th July when Peter asked if I wanted to view the stars in my back garden as we were both very interested in astrology. as we were looking for the constellation of stars known as Pleiades, we witnessed a sphere in the sky (same size as the north star) with a high intensity bright whiteness, moving along horizontally high above my garden. It disappeared for a short while and reappeared at the other side of the gardens view. Both Peter and myself were bemused as to what it was, there was no explanation we could give to its identity, it moved in an unusual way.

Then on the 26th of August, we both witnessed what seemed to be the same object again when in the back garden. At first we thought it was an aircraft or alternately a high orbiting satellite, briefly touching the atmosphere. A little later in the evening, I will never forget it - at 11:45 p.m. we again watched in awe as the strange white object came into view before suddenly disappearing. Then I looked away to view another part of the sky (Orion's belt) Peter shouted "LOOK A SHOOTING STAR" I don't know what made me look straight up, but vertically above me was this half moon shaped object, some parts were obscured from my view probably because of the speed it was traveling, it also seemed to be transparent. The object wavered, more like a left to right oscillation, then it disappeared over my neighbors house. Peter became unnerved but I stayed out staring at the sky transfixed, it seemed time itself had stood still for a while.

After the incident I asked Peter what he had seen, he described an object starting from a dot to a half moon shaped object red/brown in color, although I only noticed it as being red. We gave different logical explanations as to what the object might have been but later, still confused, we had no doubt it was something we had never seen before.

Although I am very good at the identification of military aircraft, I looked through conventional aircraft books to try and identify what we had seen, not one aircraft had the same similarity. It was not an optical illusion or a hallucination because both myself and Peter saw exactly the same thing. Certainly whatever it was, it was intelligently controlled. Made no noise which was puzzling. Days after the incident I started to draw the object and every time I shut my eyes I could see it in my imagination. there have been cases were red corpuscles of blood pass in front of the iris of the eyes to give off these red, strange shapes in front of you. But we both could not have experienced this at the same time during our sighting. Anyway my conclusion is that it was a UFO, Unidentified Flying Object, Peter agrees also.

We began the Lanarkshire UFO Group with that August 1995 sighting in mind. We advertised in UFO Magazine and various places and received many replies. We sent reports of our UFO sighting to others, some wrote saying it looked like the 1947 Kenneth Arnold sighting and I agree, others said that it might be have been the High Agility Low Observable (HALO) Aircraft from British aerospace in the UK. But to me it doesn't look like our UFO.
