I had been sitting in my house on the evening of the 9th of September, when i heard a low pitched rumbling sound lasting around 4/5 secs.
Over a period of around 3 hours i heard this sound around 5 times, each time i went into the garden to see if i could see where it was coming from, it
The last occasion i went out, it had become dark and the sky was clear of clouds, as i looked out towards Cairn Artur for this noize that had
tormented me for the past 3hours, i noticed a constant white light being closely followed by another light. One followed the other for thirty or so
seconds before the following light broke away and flew directly over my location.
As it passed over i distinctly saw a non saucer shaped outline with a solid illuminated green circle and a red circle within its boundary. As it moved
away i lost sight of the green and red and could now only see in what i could best describe as a white bank of twinkling/flashing lights.
I ran into the house to get my wife who had fell asleep putting our son to bed, when she eventually made it outside i pointed out to her in the
distance the thing that had passed over us. Not interested in the least she went back into the house as it did only look like a plane at that
I continued to watch it as it started to turn left from the straight course it had been on. As it turned it started to descend at angle of about
45degrees and disappeared behind a bank of trees a mile or so away in the location between, i would guess, Roslin and Rosewell.
I shouted to my wife who came back out moaning "what now" blah blah blah.
As i was describing what i had just saw i heard again that low pitch rumbling, then not far left of the location of the thing that descended behind
the trees, the sky lit up in an shallow arc of white light, it lasted around 5/6 seconds before it turned from white to red lasting a further 5/6
seconds before fading out.
My wife thought there had been an explosion, i phoned a friend who lives 10 700ish smoots away to ask if anything was going on in his location. He
explained the annual firework display was underway.
To my mind a firework display 11 miles away could not explain what we had just witnessed.
I jumped in the car and drove a mile or so to gain a vantage point from where i could film this firework display taking place.
The likely hood of that firework display which i witnessed and also filmed, could cause the effect we saw is NIL.
I will finish telling of the event tomorrow.
Take care till then.
