triangular UFO seen hovering above the motorway by four
passengers in a car, in Stirling, Scotland in 1997. The
object had a small rectangular "bar" at one
apex. The object was an equliateral (or very close) triangle
with sides of possibly 30 to 40ft. The sighting took place
on the M9 (M80) motorway near Stirling in Scotland, a
very rural area of Scotland.

sighting took place on the M9 (M80) motorway near Stirling

only small towns dotted either side of the motorway. I
am unsure whether there are any military bases nearby,
but the oil refineries at Grangemouth would have been
Description and Details:
Sunday, 6 July 1997, at about 18:30, we were driving back
from a volleyball tournament in Perth. It was a beautiful
clear summer evening. There were four of us in the car
(I was sitting in the front passenger seat), and I think
we had just passed Stirling when I noticed a strange object
directly above the motorway in front of us. I asked the
driver if he could see it and he said he could. I then
asked him if he'd ever seen anything like it and he said
he hadn't. It was hard to tell exactly how big the craft
was or how far away. My best guess is that it was a bit
wider than the wingspan of a small two-seater aeroplane,
and that it was flying at no more than a few hundred feet
above us. It certainly wasn't anything like as high as
a passenger jet - more like the height you see helicopters
flying when you can still see the pilot inside. Because
it seemed fairly close, we were able to get a very good
look at the craft as we approached it and then passed
underneath. It appeared to be very flat as we couldnt
really see any height to it at all - all we ever really
saw was the triangular underside of the craft. (Diagram
1 shows how the object looked as we approached it from
"behind".) It must have been either hovering
or travelling very slowly since we appeared to catch up
with it and pass underneath it in much the same time as
we would have if it had been standing still (we were probably
travelling at about 80 mph). I remember actually asked
the driver if he knew which way it was moving and he said
no. (Diagram 2 shows how the object looked from directly
underneath.) I remember the shape very clearly and apart
from the "T-bar" at the "front", the
rest of the craft was completely uniform and triangular.
The craft was totally black, there were no markings of
any kind that we could make out, there appeared to be
no source of propulsion, and we couldnt hear any
noise at all as we passed below (although being in the
car, its not clear whether we would have been able
to hear anything anyway)."
four people in the car saw the craft, although the driver
and I probably got the best view as we were sitting in
the front. The whole sighting would have taken no more
than a minute or so, from the moment we first saw the
craft until we had driven so far past it, we couldnt
really make it out anymore."
was a fair amount of traffic on the motorway at the time,
so I would guess that many others must have seen it as
sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or
object was certainly not a natural phenomenon of any kind.
I suppose it could have been some sort of stealth aircraft,
the black colour and triangular shape are probably the
best evidence for this. However, the stealth aircraft
I have seen still look a bit like conventional aircraft.
This was, or appeared to be, completely flat, it was completely
triangular - we couldn't even really tell which end was
the front, it had no visible source of propulsion, it
had nothing, not even joins, underneath suggesting anywhere
that landing gear could be stowed, and it appeared to
be hovering or travelling very slowly - I heard somehere
that current stealth aircraft have a minimum air speed
of around 100 mph (?)."
the time of the sighting described above, I was just about
to start my final year at university. I would have been
31 at the time. The occupations of the other witnesses
in the car at the time were a policeman, a teacher (I
think) and the other, I don't know. The reason I don't
know for certain is that these were friends from a volleyball
team (I had been playing at a tournament in Perth in Scotland
on the weekend in question) who had offered to give me
a lift home after the tournament."
on UFOs, before and after sighting:
had an open mind before but didn't think much about them,
although I still probably knew more about them than the
average person. I have always had an interest in "fringe-scientific"
topics but UFOs were nowhere near top of the list. Since
this sighting, my interest has grown considerably and
I have become an avid watcher of the skies. I have also
had four subsequent sightings (2 daytime, one dusk, and
one nighttime, all with other witnesses and 3 in the same
place oddly enough - above the Oval Cricket ground in
London) and while each was a bit odd in its own way, none
were anything like the clear sighting of an obviously
structured craft seen at close quarters describd above."
