8th july ,23:20hrs.South of edinburgh.triangular with a front.minutes.witnessed a ufo at close quarters.

driving with wife 11.20 ish in Scottish Borders when we both commented on a intense light off to our left, through the trees,when we turned the corner there was a ufo ahead,it was positioned around tree height above a electricity pylon.as i stopped the vehicle the ufo moved off,towards us,the time it took my wife to get the camera,out of it,s protective case etc put the window down,i had the oppertunity to closely observe this sculped craft.half a dozen photographs were taken in total,hanging out of the window,only one picked anything up,3 white lights.another motor vehicle appeared behind us so i moved off pulling in seconds lster to observe the ufo disapearing over the tree line,i thought the man in the car was going to stop,but he never,he saw it also as it was almost directly overhead,slightly off to the left, heading in a general southern direction.Looking at the object straight on or directly ahead it had a fixed wing appearance,bright mirror like appearance,curves rather than a flat panel like that of a modern stealth bomber,large,no windows,a dull drone was audible as it slowly moved off overhead.Minutes later i drove to the highest point within the immediate location 340m and within 5 minutes a object in the form of lights in the sky appeared over the tree line,real low on the horizon,moved along the horizon only and minutes later it slipped over the trees,no pictures were posible with camera but observations were made with binoculars,3 white lights with a possible flashing red light central.drove back to original sighting,enroute a further sighting of lights but when we arrived back it was,nt long before an object,the lights,showed up again,no noise was heard.After the ufo had gone my wife pointed out that there was 3 bright objects in the sky,and that there moving,so i watched one of the lights with 30x50 bino,s for 10 15 minutes,it was moving,seemingly struggling to hold it,s potition in the sky and shooting back.the sky at initial sighting was a clear twilight,few stars,later on a few more stars but not many,tiny wifs of cloud.As my wife and i were back to back,looking up,a vast streak of light,from sky to land appeared for one or two seconds with the intensity of a thousand lightening strikes,we drove home.For one or two weeks after my wife was,nt well esp her eyes,my left eye felt like it was scratched,i slept alot after the event,little bumps are still present on both our necks.
