Ive Just seen the most bizarre series of lights high up in the sky literally 20 minutes ago.. Spotted at 5.14pm
I live in a town call Livingston which is between edinburgh and glasgow. Livingston is directly in Edinburgh Airports flightpath.
I was just driving home from work and heading accross almondvale boulevard ( a shopping mall ) when i spotted a very bright series of lights at high
altitude which i would say was roughly over the town of broxburn which is in between edinburgh and livingston.
At first i thought nothing of it as i see planes taking off and flying over this area all the time though at that altitude it made me ponder. I pulled
over and observed the light for roughly 30 seconds, they never moved and i would say where as bright as lights at a football stadium.
If this was a plane heading out from edinburgh I would expect the lights to be heading towards me, as they remained stationary I jumped back in the
car and proceeded to drive along the boulevard to get a better vantage point at the top of the hill.
I passed 4 high shopping buildings along the boulevard which obstructed my view and when i got the crest of the hill which is literally a 15 second
drive the lights had gone.
I have to say ive got some serious goosebumps typing this ( after i spent another 10 minutes in my street looking all over the horizon to try and spot
them again )..
Has anyone in the Edinburgh / Livingston region spotted anything of this nature tonight?? Give me a few postives here and im right on to Edinburgh
airport air traffic control.
I did notice there where no planes for about 30 minutes and edinburgh usually has planes landing every minute or so.
Another unusual point is that there is a parallel airstrip to edinburgh airport which is owned by RAF Turnhouse and is a base for tornado fighter
Jets, I did not see any fighter Jets scrambling??
The sequence of lights looks as though they where an offset saucer shape, more of an elongated boomerang shape.
Im no davinci, but heres a quick photoshop of what i seen
As soon as the wife comes back from work im out in the car with my infra red camera to the highest vantage point i can find to scour the skies.
Ill keep you all up to date on any findings and local press monitoring over the next few days..
Phew... What a sight.
