'Pear-shaped' UFO spotted in East Kilbride
Motorist spots mysterious object in the skies of South Lanarkshire.
A motorist on the East Kilbride Expressway has reported spotting a mysterious object in the sky.
George King reported the mystery on the UK UFO Sightings website, following his unexplained sighting on Sunday, January 2 at around 8pm.
He said: "I was sitting in my car, facing west, when I noticed two orange lights - one smaller than the other - flying low.
"I thought it was a police helicopter but it kept coming with no noise and suddenly shot up skywards right in front of me.
"I jumped out of car to phone my son and to the left of me I saw a large, pear-shaped, bubble type thing heading towards Hamilton/Strathaven."
UFO expert and author Ron Halliday said: "There have been a number of sightings in the East Kilbride area, certainly since the beginning of this Millennium. It is somewhat of a hotspot for UFO activity, with a regular series of sightings.
"It is an intriguing sighting. There have been a number of odd objects seen in that area, strange things such as a coffin shaped UFO. Lights in the sky and moving off at a high speed both fit the patterns of a typical UFO report.
"Pear shaped is a new one to me, although ‘bubble’ shaped things are often described as looking like space crafts."
