Orange Light Over A71 To Whitburn UK

Date: October 22, 2010
Time: 2:45 a.m.

Hi, I was heading to work this morning 21/10/2010 at 2.45am, I travel along the A71 to Whitburn from the west, as I went past the mines to the west of Briech I saw an orange light in the sky towards the airport (maybe over it it's hard to judge the distance) Anyway I thought to myself I don't normally see a plane landing at this time ( you get to notice planes at the same time every day) and it was brighter and the light was larger than a planes landing lights.

So I watched this object looking for a red or blue light too, but there was definitely none.

I watched this all along the road until the traffic lights at Briech and it didn't move at all which would be unusual if it was an aircraft. I couldn't see it again until I got to the lights at Whitburn because of houses etc. But when I got there it still was in the same place, I then arrived at work and managed to sneak out about ten minutes later and it was still there, not appearing to have moved.

PS - I was looking for the Hartley comet too last night/early this morn, but couldn't see any stars because of a light cloud cover so stars are ruled out.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential. website:
