At 21:00 (16/09/2009) my wife and I were walking our dog near our home (Edinburgh west side).
The sky was starry, crisp and clear of clouds which I thought was quite weird in an awesome way. There were no clouds and the sky seemed to have a
mixture of purple throughout it. I even mentioned this to my wife as we walked something quite unreal about the colour that I could not put my finger
I was looking out toward Costorphin hill (Edinburgh zoo is situated there) To the left of that is Edinburgh airport and I was looking at several
aircraft moving about in that direction as I am a bit of a plane nerd. I was watching them drifting over there, strobes blinking when my wife who was
just behind me said, 'What is that?'
I followed her gaze back the way we had come and was perplexed to say the least to see a very bright whitish blue light above our house at a height of
roughly two to three thousand feet. It was moving slowly in the direction of Saughton prison and watching it I was stunned... There were no navigation
lights, no strobes and no noise as would be expected had it been an aircraft, I should know.
If aircraft fly over my house I am enough of a nerd to go out and watch them.
I chuckled as we both stopped walking to look up at the light. 'Do you believe me now love?' I was of course referring to the event of the 8th of
may last year when I had seen two UFO's above our home and been more or less ridiculed, castigated and pretty much dragged over the coals for it by
everyone I knew.
The events of last year had caused us to split up and I had even lost friends over it because I had been quite vocal about the events and had even
gone to see a doctor because peer pressure had thought it would be a good idea.
My wife did not respond, she silently continued to stare as the bright light continued to move, arching round to the left on a path that seemed to
take it in the direction of Edinburgh castle on the distant skyline.
Across the other side of the road two ambulance crewmen were helping a man I recognised as a chef who used to work with my wife. He was on a gurney
being loaded into the back of the ambulance. The two ambulance men were glancing up at the strange light as they worked but they did not seem to
realise that we were standing on the other side of the road watching them, watching the UFO.
I was enjoying this moment so much let me tell you (a confirmation to myself that I was not a wacko after all) and was so intent on enjoying the open
mouthed look on my wife’s pretty face, the frowning looks on the faces of the ambulance men’s faces that I missed the part in the sighting when
the light winked out and became a pinprick of light.
'It's a triangle,' my wife breathed, her eyes going wide. I looked as the light had gone out but forcing on the spot I realised that the light had
not gone out, it had just turned into a very faint pinprick that was almost impossible to spot. Had I not been looking straight at it I probably would
not have spotted it against the backdrop of stars.
At that point I remembered that I had left my camera phone in the house but I did not care. I have never been interested in proving to the world that
what I believe to be true is that visitations are real. My wife was the only person I wanted to believe me and the look on her face told me now she
was much closer to believing the UFO phenomenon is real. She is the biggest sceptic you could ever meet so that fact was a great realisation to me.
We both continued to gaze at this now very dim light that had turned now into a pinprick against the dark sky and suddenly like something from a film,
the light picked up speed, disappearing completely before it reached Edinburgh castle that stood nestled atop the extinct volcano, as if winking out
'Don’t be scared babe. Are you sure it was a triangle you saw?' I asked still enjoying the amazed look on her face. I was laughing and chuckling
and I felt like a kid. I did everything but punch the air and slap my thighs.
‘No I didn’t see a triangle shape and I'm not scared; I saw three lights come together into a single point in the centre. Didn’t you see it?'
'No love, I was too busy watching your reactions to the UFO sighting'.
She looked at me for a bit then just like that, we carried on walking.
My wife was a bit quiet for a few days afterwards but I think it was just her way of assimilating the fact that her world had been turned upside down
and that there were actually strange things going on in the skies.
Here is an update from my original log which the above is copied and pasted from.
My wife is in her mid forties, she has smoked nonstop every single day since she was thirteen years of age.
She no longer smokes and has had no cravings since one morning just “quitting”. I cannot explain it and neither can she and this is weird because
for years she has tried to stop smoking and never lasted longer than a few days.
This feels permanent, it is incredible and she has started going to the gym three times a week! a very happy about this because just hapen to be a
