'UFO' video - mystery lights caught on camera

Published: 21 Sep 2011 11:409 comments

VIDEO: West Fife couple, who had earlier claimed they saw strange light formations over Cairneyhill, now have footage to back this up.

A CAIRNEYHILL couple, who were shocked to see strange lights appearing over the village , captured the sighting on camera.

A Press reader contacted us about the light formations he claims he saw with his girlfriend at around 10.30pm on Sunday.

"There were four lights came over in a formation, then another four and there must have been over twenty by the time they all went over," said the man, who was spending the night at his girlfriend's home.

Initially, he thought he had been too late in getting his camera and filming the incident but he later discovered he had caught the last of the lights heading off.

He said, "There was no sound from an engine, they weren't helicopters and at first I thought they must be Chinese lanterns but it was strange that they were in these formations and they glided off into the distance.

"When the last lot appeared one was lagging behind then it moved up very quickly ahead of the rest and stopped dead so I knew a Chinese lantern couldn't do that.

"I had been going to bed when my girlfriend went out to the car to get something. She came back in shouted 'Come and see this'.

"I was all over in about five or seven minutes I'd say. I went back in to get my camera but by then they had all gone. I'm sure other people must have seen them.

"It was a clear night. I couldn't make out what shape they were but my girl says they were triangular. The lights were orange like a lamp-post and they went right over the middle of the village, over the petrol station there.

"I feel a bit daft phoning up about this but I've never seen anything like it before," said the caller who did not want to be named.

    He didnt leave his name because the cops would have came round to take his stash of illegal drugs from him and lock him up.

    Of course they are lanterns! They're everywhere, one even landed in front of my car when I was driving home over the forth bridge a week or so ago.

    I too saw them from my back door in Kirkcaldy...but by the time I got the binoculars out they were gone - the wife said 'they're probably Chinese Lanterns' but I tend to be more romantic than her and I say they were doffo UFOs. Orange blobs in the sky over towards Inverkeithing then, woosh, gone out like a light!
