Location: Hamilton (UK/Scotland),
Shape: Egg
Duration:5 mins
Hamilton is on the aircraft approach from the south to Glasgow airport (and there were aircraft in the vacinity right at that time)but this dark coloured balloon shaped object flew west to east at approx 500 ft. at an almost constant altitude - speed roughly 70 mph at a guess. It had been windy during the day but this had dropped well down by then and the object moved much faster than anything moving solely by the wind could have gone. Aircraft, I'd guess, would be nearer 10,000 ft. Observed firstly by my neighbour(a policeman) - I'm ex-RAF - radar operator.
