Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Red and orange sphere with a swirling gaseous looking surface.
Size of Object(s)
Approx 100ft diameter.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was in the middle of the town! Aberdeen is an oil rich town supporting the North Sea oil operations, another thing is that in the central area (the area that the sightings were in) most of the houses are built of granite and a geiger counter will read higher than normal radio activity in this area, safe but definetely higher than normal.
Full Description & Details
Around 1977, middle of town in broad daylight, an orange/red sphere about 100ft in diameter, it was sort of glowing and had swirling gaseous surface to it. It was silent and flying about 100ft which was just over the height of some three storey town houses in my street. I looked over my shoulder and saw it going across my street diagonally, I had to run to see it for a bit longer before it dissapeared over the town houses. I ran to tell this to my parents, but never told them until I remembered it 8-10 years later.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was about 13, I didn't have any specific views before the sighting. After my memory came back I knew that I had seen something extraterrestrial. I have only been investigating seriously though after I heard the accounts of the mass sighting as it confirmed my story. I had read nothing about UFO's before my sighting.
The trajectory was approx SW and if you follow the trajectory Northwards you end up scurting the West coast of Orkney, which is where another sighting by two young guys happened around the same time as my sighting.
