Hi,

I don't want to post a sighting as I don't want to be branded a lunatic, but about 3 years ago outside Elgin, Scotland, UK, myself and my fiancee saw what you would call a UFO. We used to live 5 miles from a major Air Base in Scotland (Lossiemouth) with a great view as we had the last place on the outskirts of town, so no streets lights or roads.

To the point, a huge, bright light hovered above the tree line next to the base and moved horizontally so fast that I knew it was no coventional craft. I got such a scare that I shook my fiancee up (as she was asleep) and she saw it too... (It stayed in the area for about 1/2 hour)

A Tornado (fighter aircraft) squadron is based there and we used to watch them take off - what we saw was no conventional aircraft or helicopter taking off...

I also called the base the next morning to report it and got a bit of a "We didn't see anything, thanks for calling anyway..."

I told a couple of friends about it - they thought it was a big joke which is why I don't talk about it anymore.

As far as I can see, the military are either testing a secret new form of travel, or we've had a couple of
visitors...

If you want any more info, give me a shout.

Cheers, ((name deleted))
