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.

Yesterday evening whilst taking my dog for a walk I saw a large brilliant bright light in the sky to the east of Dunoon.
It was stationary and wasn’t a normal shape (looked square or rectangular).
I watched it for over 10mins whereby it just sat there…i put the dog indoors and returned less than 2mins later and it had vanished.
It definitely wasn’t a plane helicopter etc as was far too high and really was the brightest thing I’ve ever seen in the night sky.

Multiple Dim Orange Lights In The Sky, Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales, 27th April 2020

I was putting the bins out when I noticed a single small dim orange light traversing the night sky. I initially assumed it was a satellite, then I noticed another similar light following it…followed by another…then another…then another! In the approx. 5 – 10 minutes that I noticed and observed them, there must have been in the region of 20 – 30 lights passing over, all travelling roughly, in my estimation, from NW to SW (I couldn’t see exactly where they were going as a bank of cloud had rolled in and obscured my vision). What struck me was how constant and uniform these lights were – they appeared to be travelling at the same speed, the same altitude, in exactly the same direction and all appearing to have the same distance between them. I can’t say with any certainty as to the altitude of these objects, save to say that my impression was that they were high up. I couldn’t determine their exact speed other than they didn’t appear to move very fast – these lights were visible for about 10 – 15 seconds from their first appearance to disappearing behind the cloud cover. They were observed at an azimuth of about 40 – 50 degrees. I couldn’t make out any noticeable sound. Of course, one possibility is that they were Chinese lanterns, but having observed these in previous years their flight patterns appeared to be much less uniform (some flying higher than others), whilst it could’ve been satellites although the ones I’ve seen have always appeared individually rather than in a group. My towards space debris e.g. booster rocket breaking up after re-entering the atmosphere. It would be interesting to know if anyone else saw anything, or might be able to provide a rational explanation.

We saw a bright white light that seemed to stay stationary then spin, it darted around quickly in different directions. Night was very clear and it was definitely not a satellite, meteor etc… it moved very quickly up and down then side to side, was far away and not a plane. Watched for about 30 minutes then it went.

While sat in the garden during the lockdown and enjoying the sunshine, just randomly took photos with my iPhone to alleviate the boredom. When reviewing them later, discovered a strange object in only one of the shots. It was in a westerly direction.
