Location: Darvel (UK/Scotland),
Shape: Disk
Duration:All day
saucer shaped object with point seen above Darvel at time of Halle Bop

The object was a dark, saucer shaped object with a small point at the top. I have researched the shape and it is much like the Rouen, France sighting in 1957. It appeared one day before the sighting of the Halle Bop comet. Many people thought the sighting was the comet, however it hovered over the town for the full day, and was too far west to be the comet (from Darvel) and too far east (from close town Newmilns). The object was visible for a short time the next day, before dissapearing.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. Hale-Bopp was first visible in March 1997. PD))
