Subj: Fwd: UFO Sighting in Scotland 16-7-2002 Date: 7/18/2002 9:51:17 AM Pacific Daylight Time From: ((e-address deleted)) Sent from the Internet (Details) Cumbria, England, UK Greetings from the Lake District, Mary and I are visiting here with her folks and having a very nice time while we wait for Illusion to sell in Florida. We have two months to go here in England visiting castles and such. Below is an a message I sent out after a ride we took through southern Scotland. Its for real! I left out that I'd sailed around the world for fear they would think me some sort of nut case.

I am an American visiting the UK for a few weeks.I have borrowed my father-in-laws computer to make this report.My email address is ((e-address deleted)) I was the passenger in a car on July 16, 2002 at 10:30am traveling along hiway B936 near Fruechie, Fife, Scotland. The sky was mostly clear with unlimited visibility. I spotted a silver spherical object in the sky approximately 2/3rds of a mile north of the road over a farmers field. It was approximately 200-300 feet above ground level. At first it was stationary with no apparent movement in any direction. I thought it might be a ballon, although it was perfectly round with no protruding parts of any kind, such as a gondola. After a few seconds it began to move towards the east at a speed of perhaps 70-100 MPH. It passed over the village of Kettlebridge moving below the line of hills east of that village and I lost sight of it. It was clearly not a conventional aircraft and clearly not a ballon. The grid reference on your UK Ordnance Survey map for the initial sighting is NO 2907.I am 47 years old. I am a pilot and familiar with estimating distances and altitude. I am a former US Army Captain and a retired California Peace Officer. I am excited and wanted to pass this on. There were three others in the car with me and they all saw the silver object in the sky too. So there you have it. Please pass it on to whoever in the UK keeps track of such things. Thanks >From ((names deleted)) the wanderers
