Important Scottish sighting from Kirkcaldy
Segment of the lights taken with mobile phone
Kirkcaldy July 28 2007
It was just around Midnight when Yvonne stepped outside the Railway Club At East Fergus Place Kirkcaldy, for a breath of fresh air.
On looking around she was astounded to see a large array of circular lights that Yvonne described as " ten times the size of the full Moon" The lights were at an elevation of around 60 Degrees and in the direction of Burntisland.
She quickly called her partner Ian, and two members of the clubs staff to come and look. As the four watched they could see the lights rotating both clockwise and anticlockwise.
Ian described it thus: "We saw white lights rotating in sequence, in a circle, in the sky, as if on the circumference of a disc. Being a musician, DJ and, also an electronic design engineer, I have seen similar light sequences using bulbs, projectors or, lasers.
The disc was so large, that I could not focus attention on all of it at the same time. It seemed to be one light at a time, rather than a rope-light effect. The lights appeared to be fixed in position on the disc, one light going off as the next came on.
The sequence rotated clockwise first, at a constant - quite fast speed, which increased to very fast, then gradually slowed down and, started to rotate in an anti-clockwise direction.
The acceleration/deceleration appeared linear. As the light sequence slowed, we could see light shining from the circumference to the centre point of the circle. This light was a bright solid light at each of the segments of the circumference, as if shining from that point and gradually diminishing in brightness towards the centre".
It was at this point both Yvonne and Ian took out their mobile phones and managed to capture (in Yvonne's case) a segment of the lights. Ian tried to capture a video, and although successful, was disappointed with the images.
What they both noted was that although the lights were very bright in the sky, no actual image was visible on the phones at the time!
As Ian stated "not only was the image not visible on the screen, whilst taking the video, it wasn't visible on the screen whilst taking the still photograph either, hence the reason that I didn't take more photographs".
I wish to thank Both Yvonne and Ian for this important report, and would ask if anybody also witnessed this event to contact me (Joe) at Uforth@aol.com
