Chrome Sphere Flying Next To C172 Plane – Fife, Near Scotlandwell, Scotland – July 2014

Location Of Sighting :
Near Scotlandwell, Fife
Date Of Sighting :
July 2014
Witness Name:
Steve Boston
Witness Statement
I saw a very strange flying object a few years ago while at the gliding club near Scotlandwell. A summers day, July (I think) 2014, almost cloudless sky and about 11:30 AM. (My last year before retiring!).
I was in one of the glider launching winches and looked up, amazed to see a c172 flying past at about 1100 feet and flying East away from us slowly – only 80 knots or so. But next to it and keeping perfect formation was what looked like a ‘chrome’ sphere. It looked solid and as reflective a brand new ball bearing. You would almost think it was connected by an invisible rod so perfect was the station keeping. Impossible of course but there it was. I didn’t have my phone on, so no photos, and after watching it for 20 seconds I got a radio call for another launch so my attention had to be 100% on that. After that (about 40 seconds until launch finished, cable pulled in and machine stopped) it was too far away to see properly.
The aircraft must have arrived from my 5 o’ clock position so those at the launch point should have seen it first. But with no glider actually ready and with everyone else flying over to the north I don’t exepct they were looking that way and I would only look all the way around if preparing to launch or if a passing aircraft called me. So nobody seems to have seen it approach the area.
To make sure it wasn’t a reflection (it didn’t look like one anyway) I moved about and opened a door seeing it ‘out in the open’. It certainly looked like it was in perfect formation. The Cessna flew smoothly – no turbulence – and didn’t change course or show signs of knowing about the sphere (but it must have been visible had the pilot looked beyond their left wingtip). In that ~20 seconds my viewpoint changed from the Cessna pilot’s 8 o’ clock position round to near to his/her 6 o’ clock. That showed me it was a sphere and not – say an oval shape. I waited during the rest of the day to see if anyone else mentioned seeing it but no.
I made a rough sketch of what I saw and a map showing where it happened.

Multiple Lights-Lochgelly, Fife-22nd April 2017

Location of Sighting: Lochgelly, Fife
Date of Sighting: 22/4/17
Time: Approx 22:35hrs
Witness Name: Karen Q
Witness Statement: Last night, I was in the back garden with my dog when I noticed these lights flying across the sky. There were approximately 9; hard to count as they were moving so fast. They would congregate at a point near distant in the sky eastwards and dance amongst each other…so fast and no sound. Then they clumped in a formation of three; 3 sets at that point, move in a semi circle like search lights then would break away and fly towards the different points in the compass before coming together again after about 5 seconds, at that point in the sky and repeat flying patterns. I watched this for about 15/20minutes, when the lights met at that point again and formed one shape then disappeared…they didn’t come back. These lights moved so fast, soundlessly and precisely. I tried to take pictures on my mum’s phone but will need to check them.

Dunfermline-5th December 2013

Location of Sighting: Dunfermline
Date of Sighting: 5/12/13
Time: 5.45Ppm
Witness Name: John Millar

Witness Statement: We were having our tea last night around 5.45pm and I noticed the Crescent moon and then I noticed a really bright light that we thought was a UFO although with a little bit research learned was Venus as despite having a slight knowledge ,of the night sky, I am no Patrick Moore .
We got out basic binoculars and had a closer look at Venus .
To our amazement ,and only through binocs we could see a saucer shape object hovering horizontally ,just left of Venus that was grey in colour and illuminated and sat stationary in that position for at least 5 minutes as we all took turns with the binocs.

As I took about a minute trying to take a photo using my iPhone through the binocular lense “Attached” when I returned to observe the object again through binocs it was now on the right hand side of Venus and was no longer stationary and now moving ,still horizontally ,about the same speed as an aircraft appears to fly through the sky ,and then disappeared or fizzled out about the same distance we had first observed it left of Venus but now on the right.

Strange thing is ,as when I looked at the picture on phone ,and as can be seen ,the object appears to be pointing vertical and it definitely was sitting horizontal and stationary whilst I was trying to ready the camera as my wife and daughter confirmed.

We are not UFO hunters and our attention was mainly drawn to Venus as it was really bright last night in the southern sky .
My wife suggested that it may appear vertical in the picture if I maybe took pic at wrong angle ,although the tree line is visible so that can’t be explanation ?

1 pics Taken on iPhone showing Venus and said object to the left and is also in focus quite well as we seen.
Two other close up captures of the original pic also attached.

Any help would be great to possibly explaining this for us .as you couldn’t see this object with the naked eye and I think I was lucky to capture the image through a basic binoc lense with the IPhone too as it is clear as looking through the binoculars .
