Location of Sighting: Ayr
Date of Sighting: September 2011
Witness Name: Anon
Witness Statement: I saw a large orange ball of light stationary above the water out towards Ayr bay before it moved very quickly in a straight direction towards Arran before it looked like it disappeared high into the sky. We look over Ayr bay so get a good view towards Ayr, Prestwick and the sea towards Arran.
I know the difference between Chinese lanterns and it definitely wasn’t one. It was also definietly not a plane, with Prestwick Airport so close by, you know the difference.
I have seen these lights on more than one occasion and will start recording the dates and times, the one in September last year was the first one I saw. I have also seen two similar orange objects above the Carrick Hills in Ayr, with the same stationary behaviour before moving off high into the sky at very high speed.
The way they move so quickly as well as being stationary for long periods is really strange and much too big to be lanterns.
On a holiday to Arran my mother claimed she saw orange balls of light dancing along the Firth of Clyde early in the morning as she couldn’t sleep…..this was over 20 years ago and we thought she was talking nonsense.
Having seen these strange lights myself makes me question what she saw.
Definietly some strange going ons!
