There's something strange flying about in the night sky over Inverness. An Inverness father and his 10-year old daughter became the second local family in a fortnight to see an unidentified flying object over the area.
And it seems that air traffic controllers at Inverness Airport have also had some sort of close encounter, but they are not saying very much about it. A spokesman would only confirm that a report had been filed with the MoD, about a possible UFO sighting during the week of Feb 5.
On Wednesday, Feb 7, journalist Paul Breen and his daughter Susan believe they spotted what could have been a mystery object at 9pm when travelling home to Westhill.
Mr. Breen added: "I haven't a clue what it was. At first I thought it might have been a balloon, but it was far too luminous."
The sighting by Mr. Breen and his daughter comes days after the Courier reported that a Black Isle family had spotted a UFO and tried to capture the craft on video.
Pauline Mackay of Drumsmittal said the object seen by her, her husband and two sons in the sky near Inverness had three lights and stayed in one place. "We could see circular lights on the outside. It seemed to pulsate."
Meanwhile, the Edinburgh Evening News reports a spate of strange sightings in the sky over Edinburgh. The chairman of Scottish Earth Mysteries Research, Mr. Ron Halliday, is absolutely astonished by the reports. "People have seen strange objects in the sky all over the Edinburgh area," he said.
One witness was a City official, Dave Pickering. He said, "I saw red parallel lights travelling fast over my area on Sunday evening."
Other witnesses have described a "red ball-shaped object", three lights "chasing across the sky," or a "triangular object."
Air traffic control at Edinburgh Airport reported a strange object last December. Two RAF fighters were scrambled from nearby Leuchars, but no findings have so far been released.
