Case 105453: Situated in the very northern most of Scotland, the Shetland Islands are surrounded by the North Sea. Directly east of the event location in the town of Lerwick is Norway. It was a mixed night with very clear skies, a full Moon and intermittent hail and rain showers. A couple and their two dogs were walking at 8:35 PM when they saw what was apparently a bright “star” moving from the eastern horizon above the cloud cover. As the “star” moved closer, they could see three points of bright light in an equilateral triangle configuration at a very high altitude. The three white lights came directly towards them, and they could see that the triangle object was accompanied by two smaller, triangular-shaped objects with identical light configurations. Both of the smaller triangles were approximately 20% of the size of the large craft. The three triangles came to a complete stop and “appeared to suspend, motionless in the night sky.” There was no sound and no emissions. The large craft appeared to be greater than 300 feet on each side. Then, the three craft quickly started to move again on the same flight path at a constant speed. See witnesses’ sketch left.
