UFO Sighting Report


July, 2006


carlisle scotland, United Kingdom


brilliant blue cylinder rounded at both ends, never luminated anything around it, looked like it was below the height of the horizon, seemed to drop a little then shot straight up and seemed to dissapear behind something

Date Reported:

11/15/2011 5:32:45 AM

Sighting Time: 

2 - 4 am



No. of Witnesses: 



5 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

the object was brilliant blue from top to bottom, was a cylinder rounded at both ends, no markings, holes or other lights, completely blue in colour, found it strange that it was'nt luminating anything around it, may not have been on the ground but was below the height of the horizon as I could see where the sky started and was sat below that

Size of Object(s)

I would estimate its size to be around 15 feet wide and arround 30 - 40 feet high

Description of Area / Surroundings

we were travelling north on the M74 after Carlisle and before Lanarkshire, it was pitch black, cant recall any cloud cover, there were no street lights, no houses or industrial works, nothing, just a motorway carving its way through the countryside, only other lights were coming from other cars using the motorway, no landmarks around as its just miles of fields although I could probably find the exact spot as I travell that road a lot

Full Description & Details

a friend and I were travelling from coventry in England back home to Falkirk in Scotland after he bought a car from a friend there, we had left Carlisle and were travelling north on the M74 for about a half hour(ish), the road was not luminated and there was no houses, street lighting or any other light source for miles other than the cars using the motorway, the time was early am, around 2 - 4 am, I was travelling in my car and my friend in the car he had just bought. I noticed a odly luminated blue cylinder below the height of the horizon on my left about 100 - 200 yards away, never lit up anything around it, it was the kind of blue on your toolbar of any windows pc (brilliant blue), it sat there motionless for about 4 seconds then seemed to drop a little then shot upwards and dissapeared from sight, the way it dissapeared was strange as it seemed to dissapear behind something which I never saw, bearing in mind Im still travelling along the motorway at about 70 mph and never pulled over. I grabbed my phone and called my friend travelling behind me and said "Oh my god did you see that" to which he replied "The blue thing" "Aye" I said "that was f***in mental what the F was that". Never got a picture of it as I was driving and kind of awe struck at the time,

We never reported it as at the time I was unaware how to go about it but both my friend any I agree that it was NOT anything that we have ever seen before and both believe that what we seen was not anything that we could explain other than it being a "ufo"

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

absolutely positively not
