massive increase in UFO sightings in Scotland, but gov close the UFO hot line.
14 February 2010
By Jenny Fyall
Scotland saw a massive increase in UFO sightings last year – just as the Ministry of Defence cut off its UFO hotline.

Figures released under the Freedom of Information Act show there were 28 reported sightings of UFOs in Scotland last year. In the previous year, there were only ten, with nine in 2007.

Although some have an obvious ambiguity – the flying object seen near Edinburgh airport (it was white) or the one in Aberdeenshire reported as travelling "at the speed of an airliner" – there is a hard core that defy explanation.

But we can no longer rely on the MoD for early warning of a build-up in alien activity, as the only official hotline was closed last year to save money, and these will be the last figures published.

Malcolm Robinson, a UFO expert who founded Scottish research group Strange Paranormal Investigations, believes the hotline was crucial in finding a small number of sightings that may suggest truly bizarre objects flying in the sky.

He said: "I'm sad they've closed the desk. It's up to people like myself and my colleagues in Scotland to continue to investigate what is going on."

Among the callers in 2009 was a panicked man who reported a "bright orange bulb" in the sky in East Kilbride, which "came towards him like a tornado, then disappeared". Another told how a "bright orange light approached at low level… then it turned red".

The MoD says there is no defence benefit in investigating UFOs, so the hotline is an "inappropriate" use of resources.

Hopefully another organization can take over the job. The military may not be the best source to report anyway, as they may have motive to cover up some reports. If you think about how slow bureaucratic red tape is, a civilian organization geared to exposing sightings is the better option if properly funded with access to expert analysis'.

Red orange balls of light, ufo's?! I don't like this at all. I've seen one of these hovering up very close too back in the late 70s near the Scottish borders. Didn't know what to think, but it scared me a bit I suppose. But, I heard of someone driving up over the border northwards towards Castle Douglas.. at night via the country roads to find some of these orange balls had landed in a nearby forest. When they went closer, they saw 'small ugly beings with large eyes' with oblong boxes, who put them down & started running towards the car, till they got to the window. They said they reveresed out of there very quickly indeed.. abandoned their journey.. they were so scared! I suppose if the aliens had been really un-friendly.. they would've attacked I suppose, but still.. bit of a head fuck!

I agree with shutting down the MOD office & hotline.. there's no point in it anymore. No point in taking reports in anymore.. the next job is to fathom out how disclosure is going to take place. Now, that's the .. biggest.. challenge!

I just quickly scanned over the o.p. & responses

I noticed an i.m. contact had extended their nick earlier, and added something about herself (& a couple of friends) seeing 'two red *unidentified* lights in the sky' last night

Dundee area, central Scotland

Never got a chance to speak to her but I will when she's next on
