Shape: Light
Bright red --orange balls in the night sky


I live in the north east of Glasgow Lanarkshire Scotland. On the 8th.of August 2010 I looked out of my window and saw in the sky, a light, travelling in a SE. to NW. direction. I went outside and looked up at the light, it was red to orange in colour and in a figure of eight configuration with the two balls of the eight off set. I watched this light and when it was almost directly overhead it slowed, stopped, then faded into two little white dots, and disappeared. I realised that what looked like a single figure of eight shaped light was actually two separate round red lights.

On the 14th.of Aug, my wife and I saw a red ball of light come over the Campsie Fells (which are 10 miles distant to the north) and fly towards us in a N. to S. direction. When at a distance of approximately one quarter of a mile to our left it slowed, stopped, then disappeared. About 30 seconds later another red light appeared over the Campsie Fells and travelled towards us, it slowed then stopped at exactly the same spot as did the first. This went on at very regular intervals for some time, red lights travelling towards us, stopping and then disappearing. Although I didn't time them, the lights took about one and a half minutes to travel the 10miles from the Campsie Fells.

Later that night I looked over towards the Kilsyth Hills which are really a continuation of the Campsie fells and saw a red light, then another come over these hills and disappear at some distance from us.

There is no way these lights could be Chinese lanterns. They travelled at speed in the same trajectory, stopped, then disappeared in exactly the same place.

On the 17th.of August we saw two more red lights travelling in a NW. to SE. direction then disappear.
