UFO spotted over Bannockburn – with woman claiming it was 100 foot long
The ‘spaceship’ was spotted over Hillpark by a local resident.
A Bannockburn woman who spotted a UFO flying over the town says she has been left unable to sleep at night.
The Stirling Observer reported last week that the eagle-eyed stargazer spotted the unfamiliar craft hovering between houses on Thursday, March 16 this year and reported it to UFO authority the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) — an American-based non-profit organization that investigates cases of alleged UFO sightings.
The 42-year old contacted the Observer to detail her jaw-dropping sighting in Hillpark, Bannockburn.
She said: “The size of it was unreal. It was about 20ft away from and I’d say it was about 100ft in diameter.
“I love looking at the sky, I do it all the time.
“For about a week, I could see lights in the sky. I could see that it had windows and had red lights flashing.
“Even if it was a military thing, why was it coming down a quiet street?
“I know it sounds crazy, but I would say it was a spaceship.
“I thought it was an aeroplane at first but when it tilted forwards it was a circular shape.
“I could see writing on the top of it as well, like Egyptian hieroglyphs.
“It has been a few sleepless nights for me since it.
“I was kind of in to UFOs and that sort of thing a bit before.
“When I saw it in between the two houses, I had to run in to the house because I was a bit scared.
“I went back out for another look and it wasn’t moving very fast and there was no noise coming from it.”
A second man contacted the Observer to say that he too has spotted an unexplained sight in the sky over Stirling.
He says that he spotted a black triangular shaped object in the sky looking north from Stirling.
Another sighting was spotted in Carron near Falkirk in April this year.
The eyewitness told the Observer: “Almost immediately I saw two lights which appeared in a slight ‘puff’ of something. They were quickly joined by another three of the same,and started to fly erratically in a southerly direction. They flew like swallows do at their most agile, ducking and diving, and looked like they were having fun. They did not look like they were here to take over the planet or impose any threat.
“They were squashed horseshoe shaped with a translucence around the horseshoe shape with yellowish light.
“I’d estimate they were about a kilometre away — perhaps above the Kelpies. I watched them for about 12 seconds until they disappeared beyond the range of my vision and may have been joined by a sixth craft from seemingly out of nowhere but by that time it was difficult to tell because they were moving so fast and weaving in and out of each other, then they were gone.
“I picked up the binoculars in case they came back. I waited for a while and then left them on the window ledge to remind me that it wasn’t a dream.”
