Duration:20-25 seconds
U.F.O (ORANGE IN COLOUR) VANISHED FROM SIGHT AFTER 20-25 SECS, SPOTTED OVER MIDLOTHIAN, SCOTLAND, SUMMER OF 1996

WHEN I WAS RETURNING FROM WORK ON THE DATE ABOVE IN 1996, I WITNESSED A U.F.O IN THE SKY ABOUT A MILE UP. IT WAS FROM WHAT I REMEMBER ROUNDED IN SHAPE AT THE BOTTOM WITH A POINTED ROOF, ORANGE (AND POSSIBLY SOME YELLOW AROUND ITS OUTER SHELL) IN COLOUR BUT AT THE SAME TIME APPEARED TRANSPARENT AS THOUGH I COULD SEE THROUGH ITS SHELL, THE U.F.O MADE NO SOUND. THE SIGHTING LASTED AROUND 20-25 SECONDS AND I HAD IT IN MY SIGHT AS I WALKED TOWARDS MY HOME. THIS U.F.O THEN VANISHED, IT DID NOT FLY AWAY, IT WAS STRANGE IT WAS LIKE IT NEW IT HAD BEEN SEEN AND QUICKLY HID ITSELF (LIKE THE SKY HAD SWALLOWED IT UP IN FRONT OF ME). I WAS 19 AT THE TIME OF MY SIGHTING AND I HAVE NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT POSSIBLY DUE TO THE WORRY OF OTHER FOLKS THINKING I WAS MAKING IT UP OR THAT I WAS CRAZY. HAVING READ SOME OF THE REPORTS ON THIS WEBSITE I KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS WITNESSED SOMETHING THEY CAN NOT RATIONALLY EXPLAIN AND IT IS A RELIEF TO FINALLY TELL ABOUT MY SIGHTING. ON THE NIGHT IN QUESTION IT WAS STILL DAYLIGHT AND THE SKY WAS CLEAR (A SUMMERS EVENING).
