Hello mr.munns, I am dropping you an email as I saw something on sunday night I can't explain. I am ex military and a bit of an aviation enthusiast so am quite familiar with most of the aircraft in our skies.
On sunday evening my girlfriend and I were travelling home from my sisters in stirling, along the m9 southbound en route to glasgow. At the same time my girlfriend and I became aware of a large gold light above the Gargunnock hills. Living under the flight path to glasgow airport I am familiar with aircraft landing lights and am fairly positve they are seldom gold and don't remain in the same location. Or shine with the intensity these light were shining with. We watched these lights for 30 seconds, then from left to right, anti clock wise they blinked out. One after an other. We could see the silhouette of the hills below so can be sure they weren't from the ground. Whilst illuminated the lights were in an almost disc configuration although quite flat at the bottom and were angled up, at what appeared to be almost 45 degrees to the ground. The gold light seemed to twinkle, as if there was more than one and they were shinning in succession before blinking out over a 5 second period. Very strange.
Anyway, felt compelled to report it as I have never seen anything like it. I spend a lot of time looking at the planets both through a telescope and without, it was way too early for venus. The sighting occured around 19.30pm.
