Hi, I am a new member of this Forum and wanted to tell you about some kind of ufo sighting that I experienced.
My wife and I live just outside Glasgow in Scotland. While out walking on a cloudless summer June day 3 years ago we saw an object best described as a rectangular shape that looked like a black metalic 6" ruler, if held at arms lenght, floating horizontally about 1000 ft in the sky above and in front of us. We watched it for around 20 minutes hovering stationary in the sky, then it then slowly folded in the middle to form an inverted V shape and rapidly and soundlessly accelerated away from us until it became too small to see.
When we got home we later listened to the 6 pm news on our local radio station and could not understand why people had not reported this unusual event, as we were sure that hundreds of people must have seen it.There was no coverage in the national newspapers the following day either.
Given the exceptionally clear viewing conditions, I am convinced that any cable tethering a balloon ( ? ) that had snapped, would have been very visible, not to mention the dangers of flying such a balloon at that height so close to Glasgow Airport which is less than 10 miles away as the crow flies.
Just my personal experience, and I wondered if any of the members of the forum had any thoughts on this ?
