Location: Glasgow (UK/Scotland),
Shape: Circle
Duration:approx 1 1/2 mins
Circular object, red/brown colour with fiery glow at base, traveling very low and at speed !

We live in a top floor flat in Glasgow, Scotland, U.K., a flat that stands approx 60 to 70 ft. in height from ground level.

The curtains were opened wide on the living-room window as usual, a humid Saturday night, clear blue skies and virtually no wind or breeze whatsoever.

I was lying on the sofa watching television, when suddenly something caught my eye outside the window. It was approx 1945 hrs.

I looked up and was amazed to see a " Circular shaped object, deep red or brown in colour with a fiery yellow and orange glow at its base." I immediately called in my fiancee to view the object also, which she did. It was travelling at speed from a Southerly to a Northerly direction and seconds later, it was over the building.

We then both ran to the back bedroom window, and noticed that it had already passed the building, zipping through the sky at speed, leaving no trails behind whatsoever.

We also noticed that it was unusually low, standing out from what was a clear blue sky.

We observed the object darting speedily through the sky, stop dead in its tracks, hover, and then seem to fall straight down a few feet, stop suddenly once more, then shoot away, fading to a small pin-prick size, eventually disappearing altogether from sight. All this happened in the space of around 1 to 1 1/2 mins approx.

It came as a big surprise to us that no news of the sighting was neither on the television nor in the newspapers the very next day, as we were sure it would be.

This object is definately the most curious and unusual thing either of us has ever seen. Absolutely AMAZING !
