Full Description & Details

It was about 11pm and I was walking down the road from Waterloo to my home village of Overtown. The sky was cloudy but the clouds were a steely grey colour due to light pollution from three close towns, Hamilton, Motherwell and Wishaw. I saw, in the distance, over a town called Larkhall which was about 3.25 miles away, what appeared to be a light moving from left to right and back again. It did this several times before starting to come in my direction.

It wasn`t travelling very fast and it was several minutes before I really saw what it was. It appeared to be following the line of an old colliery railway. What struck me as unusial was that there was no noise coming from it, until it came closer, then I could hear a faint humming like that which comes from an electricity transformer.

By now it was so close that I could see it`s shape against the clouds. It was shaped like a black boomerang with four white lights along the front of each "wing". At this point I was on the railway bridge and stopped to observe the craft. It was perhaps 200 yards or less from me, accross a field, how high was hard to judge due to the fact that it was dark, but it was less than 100 feet, and I would estimate that it was about 40 to 60 feet from wing tip to wing tip. It was travelling at perhaps 10 to 15mph

What happened next was amazing to me. It turned to follow the main railway line, away from me, but it was how it performed the turn. Whereas conventional aircraft bank when they turn, this stopped in mid-air and pivoted through 90 degreeson it`s port wingtip before following the main line until it was out of sight to me.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

This was no natural object nor was it I believe, a conventional aircraft.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I remember as a child, seeing a dayglo orange disc shaped object hovering over the valley at the other end of Overtown, so I believe there is something to the phenomenon. I had not read any books on the subject before, but have since.
