Stepps, Campsie Fells-17th May 2009

Location of Sighting: Stepps, Campsie Fells
Date of Sighting: 17th May 2009
Time: 00:30
Witness: Robin Lawrenson

Witness Statement: A large, illuminated red ‘ball’, very cose to me just above trees. I called 2 relatives, and we watched it go higher towards Campsies. Going upstairs, we saw it move very rapidly, seemingly spinning, in a slow zig-zag. We watched it all the way over the Campsie fells, still very bright, as it disappeared into the distance. There is no reflected light here., and none of us are ‘believers’. We cannot think of a single posibility of what it was. It seemed to have definite intention, its movement was not random. Definitely not a balloon, wather sttion, sattelite, helicopter or plane. Amazing.

  1. 6 lights in the sky going over the m80 motorway at stepps. too close together to be helicopters, and this was at half 12 at night.

  2. I saw the same as you have described, orange reddish large object, just above the treeline near the Woodilee Industrial Estate in Kirkintilloch in April this year. I have already posted this sighting in the Lanarkshire folder. Only observed this for about 5 minutes before it moved off at an amazing rate of speed. It was definatly not a helicopter or chineese lantern.


  3. Correction: When I said the Lanarkshire folder to report my sighting, I meant the Dumbartonshire folder. Apologies. :c)
