It was almost 2 years ago now but at the time didn't know how to or who to report a sighting. I wrote down at the time what I had witnessed and now will share it with you.

15 minutes ago, 2300 hrs, Sat 11th Jan, 2020. Dingwall, Scottish Highlands. Went out to my apartment balcony for a cigarette, was looking towards the West when I saw a bright orange light emerge from the back of the hill about 5 miles away. I at first thought that it was an aeroplane but the light wasn't flashing just a faint pulsing glow. I was waiting to hear the sound of an engine but there wasn't any sound at all. It was difficult to guess what altitude it was flying at, but guessing I would say 2-3 thousand feet. It took about 4-5 minute to pass my view point. I have seen Chinese lanterns before and this was definitely not one, it was travelling at a steady controlled speed. I then came inside to view it from my East facing window for about another 10 to 15 seconds until it just disappeared as if to go behind a cloud, its a clear night and not a cloud in the sky. Really freaked me out. Was very sceptical until now.
