Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object was round in shape and was lit up inside. It had windows all round and the underneath part of the craft flashed green lights.

Size of Object(s)

Possibly three hand widths if I held my hand up in front of my face. It looked like a steel girder inside which was leaning against the inside of the craft so how long is a steel girder.

It was in the country with fieldssurrounding our house. Behind our housea about 200 yds.away was an electric pylon from The national grid

Full Description & Details

My father who had been a bomber pilot during WW11 was out with our dogaround11am when he noticed high in the sky a V shaped constellation which he did not recognise. I heard him call out to my motherto come and look as this starry V shape was moving. My brother and I were awake and heard him call out so we ran downstairs to watch. One of the stars came down and flew towards our house at great speed. It stopped over our house. There was no sound and it had windows all roundand was saucer shaped. It was lit up inside and I could see what looked like a steel girder leaning against the side of the craft left to right. The base of the craft flashed greenlights.

I can't remember how long it stayed above our house but we were able to rouse a couple of our neighbourswho also witnessed this craft. Eventually, it flew off at incredible speedsoundlessly. My father went indoors and called Renfrew Airport to ask them if they had seen anything on their radar screens. That airport is now known as Glasgow Airport. They said that nothing had been spotted.

The following morning there was an article in the Bulletin newspaper describing this UFO which had been sighted by many witnesses.


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

Absolutely not. The speed, monoeuvreability and silence of this object could not be consistant with anything seen today.

Witness Background

I am a retired chartered physiotherapist

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I knew nothing about UFO s before the sighting. I was 13 yesrs old at the time. I feel pretty sure that this object did not fit in with any technology existing today.Is there a government cover up....I don't know
