A British witness at Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland, reported watching and videotaping a disc-shaped object, according to testimony in Case 92499 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The incident occurred at 3:10 p.m. on June 2, 2018.
“There was an approaching thunderstorm from the southeast,” the witness stated. “I looked out of a window as I was at home. I noticed an object in the distance which did not look like a bird, drifting in the sky. I then went and grabbed my camcorder - Panasonic HC.V250 10.0 mega pixels 90 x zoom - to see if I could zoom in on it to see what it was.”
When the witness returned with the camera the object had moved some distance in the sky.
“My view of it was blocked as it had passed the town clock and I lost sight of it as it passed behind a rooftop. I then ran to another window in my house so I could see it again. I opened the window as I did not want to film it through glass. I managed to film it for about 30 seconds, maybe actually only 20 by the time I focused in.”
The witness described the object.
“Puck-shaped, or a disc with an edge. I was viewing it moving from my left to right. It does appear cigar-shaped as it moved horizontally. There were clouds above it and below it. It approached some lower level clouds, then banked. As it did this, you could clearly see it was circular when viewed from underneath. In brief, it traveled at a constant speed, approached a cloud formation and then banked and went into the cloud and that is when I lost sight of it. I have only basic computing equipment, so have not had the chance yet to try and enhance the images in Photoshop. The film is a bit shaky, but when slowed down and screenshots taken, you get some better images. I only noticed afterwards looking at screen shots, that as it approaches the cloud to descend into it, there appears a green doughnut-shaped light underneath it. Have attached the film clip and a couple of screen shots, and hopefully someone out there may be able to enhance them a bit more than I can. Was filmed in Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland. View for yourself.”
Robert Young for UK MUFON closed this case as an Unknown Aerial Vehicle. The witness provided four still images and one video with the report, which was filed on June 5, 2018.
“The only possible rational explanation that could account for the video is that it is either hoaxed or the object may be some sort of drone, but seems unlikely,” Young stated in his report. “My own conclusion is that it is a real object and not a hoax, an unidentified flying object whatever it may be.”
