Even second hand, such things are well outside my price range, otherwise I would probably be an awful lot more snap happy! Im stuck with my compact camera, until or unless I win the lottery or some nonsense.

Lololol...!! Me too..! I have been looking into getting some ex army gear. I have found a few things including proper night vision goggles and night vision cameras but they start from £150 upwards which is well out of my price range. The work season for me has ended. And the wages I have left have to tide me over til next April when work starts again. I am keeping my fingers crossed for my birthday..!

My friend has got a pretty good camera and it is not a compact but she lives on the mainland and I am not sure if she would let me borrow it for a couple of months.

I will find a way though and keep everyone updated..! Hopefully my partner will join in on this thread tomorrow eve...

Both myself and my partner have seen some pretty weird things up here..!! For most of them we have no logical explanation of what they were. But at some point we will be getting some decent recording gear...

Well I will keep that open as an option..! We do wonder... I am amazed not one of us that saw it had any idea of what it could be. Considering one of our neighbours is a 70yr old man who has an incredibly broad spectrum of knowledge. He knows lots about technology, the military, electronics, energy and so on... He was just as clueless as we were. He has never seen anything like this either...

My favorite part of the story was about the drunk girl

That light sounds really strange I hope someone will have an explaination for the event.

Lol..! Well she had a bottle of wine, but me and partner and our 3 other friends only had half a beer each.. I saw her this afternoon when she came over for a coffee. She thought it was really funny that she didnt notice it and said she was too busy putting one foot infront of the other..!

She doesn't have any idea of what it could be either. But she did say at least we were not the only ones to see it thankfully..! She has also seen weird stuff up here too..

You write a good story . I have no patience to write so much . But story telling is important .
Where I live , near to a smaller airport on Gold Coast Australia , I have seen many glowing clouds and beams , but figure it comes from airport lights at night . Not every night has glowing skies .
Then the other daytime the skies were really bizzare . It was actually divided in a straight line . Dark side , light side .
I have also seen this mentioned recently on here or some forum .
They are doing all sorts of experiements and playing with this stuff to do with electromagnetics and ELfs etc , so just put it down to the boys playing with their toys somewhere out there .

Oooohh..!! Yes it was kind of like that but much much thicker. That is probably roughly the size of the smaller one beside it. And also the light we saw didn't have as sharp edges as the light in that photo. Not sure if that means anything or not. Also the light we saw was 'denser' than the light in the photo. You could not see the stars or the sky through the beam of light..

I will be showing this to my friends...!!! Great find...! I have been searching all day and come up with nothing - this is why I like ATS...

Thank You very much astra..! Maybe it was some sort of pre 'Northern Lights' phenomena. We did not see any kind of lights after the beam though. But to be fair my science of Northern Lights isn't the best..!

Thanks again...

Thanks Anusuia...

There are many possibilities as to what the glowing clouds and beams could be. Who knows..! Tis all very mysterious to me...!

It might have been some kind of pre Northern Lights phenomena. My partner says the beam was kind of similar to the first time he saw the lights. But the two weren't the same and there was a different..

It was a good experience..! We wondered too whether it was the boys playing with their toys somewhere. But it was just so strange. And the sky seemed brighter than normal...

Hopefully you will be able to hear more info from my partner tomorrow..

I still do not know if they were Northern Lights.. In many of the images I have seen of them, it seems you can usually see the stars behind the lights. I do not know if this is always the case, but the beam we saw was very dense and you could not see anything through it..

I am off to the dream world now. It is late here and there is nothing but pitch black cloudyness out there tonight. Thank you for all the replies and feedback.. Will be updating tomorrow..! Sleep well peeps..

Interesting thread! I had a little search around online and found this page at :

About half way down is this report from British Coloumbia in 2003 which has some striking similarities with your sighting.


Jaffray, British Columbia

Date: July 27, 2003
Time: approx: 2:00 a.m.

I contacted a person who resides in Jaffray, British Columbia tonight as I heard they were witness to something pretty darn strange. Not only did she see what I am about to tell you, but so did 7 other witnesses. Bringing the total number of folks who observed this to 8.

Why I have found this to be an interesting sighting is due to Mr. Peter Davenport from the NUFORC receiving a report from a witness which took place on July 27, 2003 at St. Mary's Lake, 12 miles east of Kimberly, British Columbia. Due to Mr. Davenport receiving the St. Mary's Lake sighting, and myself helping in following up on this case, more witnesses names have come to light. Tomorrow I will be talking with another witness who was in another location who saw the same object pass over head. The one reported to the NUFORC.

The Jaffray, British Columbia Sighting below: Does these two reports hand something to do with one another.

As I mentioned above in my opening statement I talked with one of the witnesses who observed something strange on July 27, 2003 with seven others.

So at 2:00 a.m. one of the guests who were at the ladies home I chatted with tonight went outside and looked up into the night sky and saw a strange ray of white light which went right across the clear night's sky from the northwest heading southeast running in a straight line. The guest called everyone out to have a look due to it being very strange. Some of the thoughts people had who were observing this mentioned they first thought it may have been the northern lights. But all soon ruled out it being the aurora. The witness said the ray of light was so brilliant that many of the witnesses could see it rotating within it's self. Also it was noted due to the brightness of this light that they could see a black line running the whole length of the white light. The black line stayed in the same spot as the rest of the light rotated as mentioned above. She also said it looked like a jet stream to give a good example of what it looked like. Also the total length of the ray of light was all the same brightness. There was no portion of it brighter or dimmer. It remained constant right across the sky. (HBCC UFO Note: I did bring up the question, did anyone see any aurora at any other time that night? I was told no, none was observed).

The witness said the ray of light stayed in the same position for an hour before it started fading away. I also asked if any of them saw any other strange lights in the sky that night, and she told me no. They only observed the ray of light running across the sky. She also told me that the light was rather wide, meaning it wasn't just a small point of light. No sounds were heard at all. Jaffray, B.C. is directly southeast from the original sighting at St. Mary's Lake.

Looking forward to the photos.

It ok our friend with the iPhone was outside when he was trying to take pics. He is back tonight so will ask if he managed to take a pic or not..

Your sighting immediately made me think of this wild video filmed by a traffic camera and it's baffling people. I don't think it would be impossible to hoax this event. If someone can debunk... Debunk away. lol

Did the beam look anything like this? There's also a video doing the rounds of a beam picking up a cow. I'm not sure how that analysis came out.

I have got to ask as this been proved to be fake or real and who was in the car right next to the lorry.

surely they would be good witnesses

and is that news reporter a real reporter i know a lot of questions sorry

either way it looks very odd to say the least

starred just for the wow factor before the brain kicked in

You live in the far North of Scotland, in Northern Europe, with unobstructed views of the horizon and no light pollution.
Doesn't take much to figure out that you saw the Northern Lights.

Thanks for your reply..

As I have stated previously this beam of white light was constant. It did not move, flicker, pulsate or fade in and out. It did not act like the Northern Lights.. I have seen them before and know what they look like. This was similar but definitely different. My partner who is a member here will be home in about 3-4 hours. He is pretty good with his atmospheric phenomena and he agreed that this beam was not the Northern Lights... All 6 of us that saw it have all seen the Aurora lights in the flesh. And all of us agreed this was not what we were looking at..

Since you are out on the Atlantic Ocean could be a lighthouse light/tower light or something like that. Maybe it's not used much.
