I'm posting to see if anyone else saw what I saw yesterday. I would have posted about it yesterday but I could not get on to ATS to do so. The site
appeared to be down.
I was driving along the M876 in Scotland heading north and just near the end where it joins the M9 I noticed a large object in the sky in front of me.
It was less than a mile away. It was not high up, maybe 500 feet. It was moving to my right, ie eastwards and dissappeared behind a tree line.
I only saw it for a few seconds and I would say it was silver/grey colour. Round with a flat top. It was big, maybe 20 or 30 meters diameter.
My main hobby is birdwatching so I know what things in the sky look like and it was not a plane, helicopter, balloon or bird. I didn't know what it
was and as I was driving on a motorway I couldn't stop.
After it dissappeared behind the trees I didn't see it again although I was looking all the time through any gaps as I drove along. After about a
mile there is clear view all around and still I could not see the object again.
This area is very close to Bonnybridge which was for a period considered a hotspot for UFO's.
Personally I have never seen a UFO before, nor reported any sighting. This is my first.
Using google maps the location of the object was 56.047624,-3.818979
ps this was at about 3pm
