An Aberdeenshire family were left terrified after a UFO invaded the skies above their home for nearly five hours.
Grandmother Morag Ritchie, 50, awoke suddenly at 2am on Saturday to see strange lights circling in the distance a few hundred yards from her rural property near Fraserburgh.
In the video, taken by her daughter’s fiancee, Scott Bower, a row of flickering lights can be seen hovering in the sky, before one of the lights moves off to the right and disappears.
Ritchie, who woke up her family to witness the event, said: “I saw lights in the sky and thought it was a strange looking star. When I looked closer, I realised they were moving in a spinning motion and then occasionally something shot off to the side. I kept going back to my bed but I was so unsettled that I continued waking up.
“When Scott looked at it, he was shocked; he didn’t think it was real. Even my husband, who is very sceptical, was convinced there was something strange going on.”
The group ventured outside to film the paranormal object that was seen occupying the same spot for almost five hours. It is worth following the link through to see the video on the STV site if only to hear the Doric in full flow.
