Hi there peeps...
I live on an island off the West Coast of Scotland on a small peninsula which juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. It is the most Northern Westerly
village in Europe. Many people have seen strange and unexplained phenomena up here. I have had quite a few bizarre experiences so far in my life. And
I have experienced quite a few in the last year or so. But last night was something else...!!!
My partner (who is a member here) and I had 3 friends round last night.. As one of our friends was leaving my partner called me outside. It was about
10:30pm GMT. As I looked directly West and up at the sky, there was a completely straight and MASSIVE beam of white light streaking right above our
heads and across the sky. It had a smaller beam running along side it. It looked to us to be coming from a light source which was higher than the
clouds. It was so strange..! All 4 of us saw it. We stood gawping there and wondering what the hell it was. My partner said he remembers when he first
saw the Northern Lights that it kinda started as a straight beam of light. But he was adamant that this was not. It was clear to all of us that this
beam of light definitely had a source. But what the hell that source was we do not know...
We decided to have a walk around to see if we could see anything. We walked North for awhile but it was completely typical that you could see this
beam of light against a clear night sky yet where the light source was, it was covered with cloud.
Our two other friends left. And myself and my partner went to get our next door neighbour. Who also had a friend round. As we looked at this beam from
our neighbours house the beam looked curved. It looked like it was following the curvature of the Earth...
Neither of our 2 neighbours knew what this was either. But they saw it..!! We must have been watching if for 40mins or so and the clouds covered it.
We said goodnight to our neighbours and decided to do another walk.. We kept watching and waiting and the clouds cleared and we saw it again. That was
when we decided to get our friend who left early and show her this. She was slightly drunk and my partner was trying to show her but she wasn't
So we start walking down, both of us keeping our eyes on this beam of light. And I kid you not. Just as we were rounding the road towards our friends
house. As I walked round the curve of the road, the beam of light disappeared as I walked. I shouted to my partner to wait whilst I ran back up the
road again to see if it was just some weird angle were we could not see it....
But no it was gone...!! So we walked back home and the clouds well and truly covered the sky. We could definitely still see some sort of glow in a
thin patch of cloud, but I can not be sure if that was the beam of light again or not...
Today and tonight I have been trawling the interwebz looking for anything similar to what we saw. And I have not found anything...!!!! I have no idea
what this was. But it was just SO big. I could not even hesitate a guess as to how big. It must have been hundreds of miles long. As the source of the
light came from above the clouds way way way off the West cliffs and well out to sea. And it reached right above our heads across the sky. It was like
a giant torch light and we could not understand the smaller been to the side of it either.
We have ruled out it was not the moon. It was not any kind of light from the land mass we were on. There are no street lights here.. There is no way
that was a helicopter or a plane purely because this beam was so unbelievably big and it did not seem to move or flicker or fade in or out. It just
stayed there. It could not have been a moonbow as there was no rain. Maybe it was the Northern Lights, but having just spent hours looking for an
article or picture similar to what we saw and finding nothing I do not think it was the Northern Lights...
So in total 7 peeps saw this - and I am glad they did. Many of the things I have seen up here have been when myself and my partner are together. We
have seen orbs, shadow figures, had bizarre things happen in the house, heard really really weird noises in the house, seen bizarres shapes and light
in the sky and on the sea. But when we tell our neighbours and the locals most people think we are mad...!! But the fact that it was not just me who
saw these things. My partner did too. If I had seen these things on my own I would doubt myself..
Also I did not even bother trying to take a picture. My camera is not good enough to take photos of the night sky. One of our friends tried to take a
photo with his iPhone. But I am not sure if it came up. He is back tomorrow so I shall see what he has got...
There is also a military base literally 3mins from our house on the top of the peninsula. We live on an ex RAF Camp..
Has anyone ever seen a huge beam of light in the sky..? Does anyone know what this might be...? If not I thought I would share our interesting
experience with you anyways..
ETA : I just wanted to add that whilst the beam was in the sky, the sky seemed brighter than our average night sky... Will be updating tomorrow...
