ENORMOUS LIGHT CRAFT WITNESSED BY MANY OVER SCOTLAND
JANUARY 14, 1991 …… EDINBURGH SCOTLAND
It had been a cold cloudy night on the 14th of January in 1991 in Edinburgh, Scotland. At the time I was 10 years old living with my father who was a soldier and my mother a Berliner (German). We lived in an army estate overlooking Edinburgh City. It all started when our upstairs neighbor had informed me and the other 10 families in our block of flats that he had seen UFO activity on the night of the 13th and that the lights had returned. I initially dismissed the lights as the spotlights on Edinburgh castle which were occasionally tested and shone into the sky but the lights were indeed different. Everyone in the block went to look out their windows. What I observed was one bright white light that was of considerable height above Edinburgh Castle that gradually split into five lights that formed into formation like of 5 on a dice. As they floated in our direction the middle light turned red and the other lights moved in synchro-nised movements and patterns. Our observation point was about 10 miles from Edinburgh castle itself, which was on the south side of the city. At one point people were getting nervous as I could see from my own parent’s behaviour. The lights closed in on our location. It appeared that whatever the lights were, they had knowledge that we were observing them because as they floated above us they seemed to have grown in considerable size. I judged the object to be larger than a 747. As we gazed out our windows at approximately a 60 degree angle we noticed that nearby animals were alarmed and acting distressed. Dog’s barked excessively and other pets acted strangely. At the age of just 10 I was more curious then afraid. My stepfather went outside and estimated the size of the object as he himself couldn’t explain what the lights were. The object then moved slowly away and my mother and I ran to the bedroom window to get a better look at it. My curiosity got the better of me and I went and got my flashlight that I’d got for Christmas while my mother stood at the window. When I returned, I pointed the flashlight at the object and then turned it on as if to signal. At exactly the same moment I switched the flashlight on the hovering lights went out and immediately disappeared in front of my eyes or so it seemed. My mother and I were confused and bewildered that it had suddenly disappeared at the moment I shone my flashlight at it. The whole encounter lasted approximately 25 minutes and as far as I am aware the incident was never reported to the base Commanding Officer and nothing was heard about the incident again.
