Orange Fireballs In Sky Over Glenrothes Fife Scotland UK

Date: November/December 2010
Time: Evening.

I just came across the website and the reports of the fireballs/Chinese lanterns viewed flying over Fife in Scotland. I have seen these objects on several different occasions over the last couple of months.

I stay in a town called Glenrothes in central Fife. The objects are orange, spherical and travel around the same speed as a plane. Not sure about height, 1000 feet, perhaps more (I'm not very good at judging height).

Always seen them at night only. The strangest thing is, no noise at all.

First time I witnessed them, one flew over from Northeast to Southwest. After approx 5 minutes, another passed on exactly the same course, 10 mins later another 2 flew over (half a kilometre apart) and then 10 mins later another. All following the same direction. It looked like they were travelling from the direction of Leuchars RAF base in North East Fife heading towards Edinburgh.

The following week I saw a single one flying this time towards Leuchars in the same line/flight path.

I've saw a single one on two more occasions since.

Hope this helps.
