Full Description & Details

one summers evening in June my girlfriend ( now wife ) and i were in the car down at the seafront in Largs Ayrshire at around 2am. it was a calm night the sea was almost flat calm save for a slight ripple on the water visibility was good and it wasn t quite fully dark.

My girlfriend suddenly yelled O MY GOD WHATS THAT ( we were in a clinch she was facing the sea) we both looked and could not quite believe what we were seeing , she said lets go i am

frightened i said no lets watch this is interesting we both watched in awe

We sat and watched this bright orange ball in the sky about 500 yards off shore of the isle of Cumbrae(North side) it looked as if it was about maybe 5 or 600ft high and we watched it sit ther for a good 5 miniutes. The distance between Largs and cumbrae is about 1 mile and the object looked from our location in Largs exactly like an orange traffic light both in size and brightness

in on condition from 6 ft. It looked to us as if it was stationary as the size was not deminishing or increasing and there was no change in altitude and no noise.After about 5 miniutes it dimmed quite a bit then rebrightened like a pulsing effect it done this three or four times each pulse taking about one and half seconds then it moved very very fast in three stages of accelleration each faster than the last(without noise) and it was suddenly gone except for a distinct unbroken fading line tracing accross the sky in a huge paralell arc with the earth an effect similar to what you would get if holding a sparkler firework and moving it quickly in an arc on a dark night the line seems to linger for a second from the standing start to when it dissappeared in the southerly

horizon took about 1 second the speed phonominal. we never mentioned this to any one for ages

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Definately not never seen any thing move this fast ever or since in complete silence
