1996

Cleland, North Lanarkshire, Scotland, UK; 1996

Name: Baz

Date of Sighting: Mid 95 or 96? Think it was 96

Location of Sighting: Cleland, North Lanarkshire

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): Looking towards Newmains/Carluke from Cleland I seen a huge, bright, orange object , almost looked like a fireball, descend from the sky at a rapid speed… fast but slow enough I know it didn’t just appear but it came in rapidly from my right. Distance wise it was between 3 – 5 miles away but was still huge. As it shot into view so quick it actually hung in the air for a couple of seconds and then disappeared below the horizon.

By that time I said to me 4 mates… ‘did any of you see that’?

None of them did but as I was talking to them about what I’d just seen it shot back up… hung in mid air again for a few seconds and shot up at incredible speed and out of sight.

I pointed and said ‘there it’s back’… and luckily enough a couple of my mates caught it this time. Had they not I might have thought I was seeing things. I never seen any craft of sorts, just looked like a huge fireball but 100% it was under some sort of intelligent control as it stopped in mid air and then shot off. It also made no sound whatsoever so thinks like comets, meteors, planes, helicopters etc I know it wasn’t.

Told my teacher at school on the Monday and he noises me up all the time after that asking in class every Monday I’d id seen any wee, green man. Lol

All laughing aside… what I saw has stuck in my head since and I’ve tried searching online to see if others in my area may have also spotted it but can’t find anything.
I have seen/heard descriptions of basically the very thing I encountered but in different parts of the UK and even around the world.

Thought I might as well post about it now as I was thinking about it again tonight (2021)

Would love to know if anyone else seen it.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: 3-5 miles away

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Shot down diagonally… from up high and from my right…. hung in mid air and then shot down out of sight.

Further Description of Sighting: Huge, bright, orange ball. Looked like it was a ball of fire or a ball of light as the edges were feathered or slightly lighter than the centre of the ball.

If I try to estimate it’s size… given it was 3 or so miles away it was definitely larger than a detached house.

St. Cloud, Minnesota, USA; 1996

Name: A.G.

Date of Sighting: 1996

Location of Sighting: St Cloud, MN, Stearns

Further Description of Sighting: I was standing on a deck early evening and notices lights in the eastern sky. The only reason it kept my attention is because it was traveling so fast. I can not remember if it was one or more objects.

Then, it stopped for a while and seemed to be hovering. Which I thought was really odd but because of the distance I wasn’t sure so kept watching.

This was high in the sky and at a great distance away so I didn’t see shapes or anything but what made me feel like I saw a UFO is that once it began to move it appeared to go practically straight up like a bat out of hell.

Im no physics expert but the way the object departed at an angle that did not seem consistent with modern aircraft as I understand them. Until the day I die I’m convinced I saw either one of mankind’s fastest, most advanced plane or something from another planet.

This is coming from a guy that grew up in San Diego near Mira mar air station where military planes come and go at all hours.

Bayou Chicot, Louisiana, USA; November 22, 1996

Name: Chris

Date of Event: 11-22-1996

Location of Event: Bayou chicot, louisiana

Message: I was inside my girlfriends house, her father was outside sitting on the ca, this was about 8:30 pm and it was a clear night.this was just south of turkey creek, louisiana, in a place called bayou chicot,, which is thousands of acrea’s of woodland.

Her father called me outside, he told me to look up at the stars,, i thought he was kinda nuts, he pointed out a star that seemed to be very bright, orange and red with some blue in it. there were 4 or 5 of these lights, they were very far away it seemed.

I told him they were probally sattellites, he said watch,, all of a sudden one of the lights that was in the very east side of the sky, travelled to the opposite side of the sky in a smooth motion, and reached the complete opposite horizen in about 3 seconds, at the distance the light was, to travel this fast they would have to been going around mach20, because i have watched fighter jets like f-16 and f-14’s practing over the gulf of mexico breaking the sound barrier,and thats just mach 1 or 2, and this thing was 10 times that fast and without sound.

well the other lights then each moved like this, two of them went to the other side of te sky then kinda zig zag up and dow and side to side probally covering 100 miles. then they would stop in midair, they were extremelyy far away and we could not see any shape to them but we were both sure that this was not any technology that our USA had at that time.

i went home that night and though about it, well about 3 hours later he called my dads house, whom i lived with, at about midnight and told me that 6 military helicopters flew over his house and were circling the area in thw woods around his house( there are 1,000’s of acrea’s of woods, and it is extemely thick and hard to navigate.

since then i have belived alot of stories i here.i know it is hard to belive but on several occasions since then when i am offshore working on a platform if i look up in the sky,, sometimes you can see these same lights, the reason not many people notice them is because they dont move alot,, they might sit and hover where they are for twenty minutes but when they move you will see it,, it is very smooth and doest leave a streak like a meteor, then it just stops suddenly and hovers
