The oddly-shaped light in the sky was captured by Catherine Stuart and her mother Susan, who were in the queue for Saturday’s late-night Tattoo, just before 10.30pm. Ms Stuart, who lives in London but is originally from South Africa, said she had no explanation for the strange apparition, which disappeared soon after they photographed it. The 31-year-old said she thought the “weird” object was a bird at first. She added: “It was very strange to see because when we looked at it again it didn’t look like a bird.

I saw two strange flying objects when I was traveling on the train from Edinburgh to London Kings Cross. The train left Edinburgh at 2.00pm on 16.01.14 and I spotted the two objects at approximately 2.10pm. The objects seemed to be tube / disc shaped. At first I only saw one object, then a second object came into view – it was some distance behind the first but caught up with it very quickly.
It was a clear day – there were no wings to be seen on the objects. I tried my best to video them and eventually managed to do a close up shot of one of them – very tricky on a moving train. I watched them for approximately 3 minutes and then they both rose up into the cloud and disappeared from view. I have used slow motion, close ups and an ‘x-ray’ on the video – as well as highlighting where to look at the start of the video with two ‘red rings’. This was a really puzzling but amazing experience – please leave a comment if you saw these objects on 16.01.14. Thanks for looking.
Recorder states: The craft was above her moving so silent she didnt see it until until the last minute and also didnt realise her finder touched the screen and stopped recording, the sighting near Craigton Wood had her heart pounding and its not the 1st time she saw a UFO, she recalls a UFO on November of last year that fell from the skies and hovered over the area.

The pilot in shock contacted the airpot’s control tower saying: “We just had something pass underneath us quite close. Have you got anything on in our area?” The tower replied: “Negative. We’ve got nothing on radar.” The pilot later said there had been a “high” risk of collision as the object “loomed ahead at a range of 100m”.
Then both he and his co-pilot described the object that they saw as “bigger than a ballon” with a small frontal area.
He then told the investigators: “We seemed to only miss it by a couple of hundred feet. It went directly beneath us — wherever we were when we called it in it was within about ten seconds. We couldn’t tell what direction it was going but it went right underneath us.”
The Airprox report included a transcript of the conversation that took place between the aircraft and the controller at 12:55:
