Fast Moving Glowing Orange Ball Over Stenhousemuir Near Falkirk Scotland
Time: Approx: 10:45 p.m.
Dear Brian, just writing to tell you of a strange experience I had tonight in Stenhousemuir near Falkirk, Scotland.
The local news had reported that the northern lights would be visible in Scotland tonight (5/8/10) so before I got into bed I decided to look out the window into the sky. It was around 10.45pm and everything looked fairly normal and calm however I decided to keep watching for a few minutes.
Suddenly a glowing orange ball appeared in the sky from behind a tree line. It was moving what seemed to be very fast yet wasn't moving like a plane or helicopter. It continued in a southward direction towards Falkirk town centre before changing direction and heading east towards Edinburgh.
I thought at first that it was a meteorite however when it changed direction I began to be a bit more suspicious. It then disappeared into thin air after about 10 seconds of changing direction to the east.
Needless to say I was pretty shocked at witnessing such an event but the true amazement set in when I decided to do a quick Google search for "orange ball of light over Falkirk" and numerous hits were found. The first was a link to your site which had a post from 25th July 2010 describing exactly what I saw tonight. There are also sightings of the same object dating back to may 2010 and beyond.
Anyway, I read your site entry and the comment to email you if a similar event was seen so I'm just sending this email your way. Hope it helps.
