HERALD reporters have been in contact with the MET office, Prestwick Airport and other agencies in an attempt to discover the origins of these unusual lights.
Further exclusive pictures have been obtained from quick thinking eye witnesses, who used their high tech camera phones to capture the strange phenomenon.
News of the sightings has also spread across the Atlantic and been discussed on air on an American radio station, and featured on several International websites.

My friends and I saw one light on Saturday night towards the top-end of Saltcoats and on Sunday night at the same time, me and my family saw four of them above Corsankell wynd. I thought it maybe weather balloons with the sunset reflecting off them but after their movement pattern, I was left unsure of what they were.

Looked like large white birds (swans?), reflecting the sunset light.
So far there has been no logical explanation for the strange sighting but there have been suggestions of a meteor shower and Chinese lanterns.
Anne Duff, 45 of Auchanshangan Drive, Saltcoats believes it could have been a meteor shower and said: “I only caught the tail end of the lights. When I saw them, four of them were fading away and then one light appeared brighter than all the others. I think it could have been a meteor shower as they sort of disintegrated into the sky.
“My daughter and her friend had been driving home and spotted the four lights before I did. She said they looked like a meteor shower as they broke up rapidly and sort of burned out but she isn’t sure as they came from the earth rather than going from the sky to the ground.
“I really don’t know how to explain them myself. They were very different and definitely not an aircraft but it was really nice to see.”
However, another local resident, Allison Thompson, who took pictures on her camera phone, is convinced that they are not a meteor shower but could well be aliens.
She said: “I saw five lights in the sky near my house on Dykesmains Road. They were very high up and were like orange balls of fire. They didn’t fade away at first but three of them turned into squares and flew off into the clouds.
