Location: Buckhaven, Fife (UK/Scotland),
Shape: Oval
Duration:4minutes
Broad daylight, very close object with a pink light , manta? flaps.

When I was digging the vegetable plot n object about the size of a car i.e. approx.8-12ft wide came out from behind roof of houses across the road from myself and partner. I yelled "UFO" and got my partner to watch it as I ran for my camera. The object was about 100-13-feet away. It looked oval with an underneath part which revolved and had a pink/red flashing light. It looked tatty, black, and the two ends of the oval almost flapped like the fins of a manta ray would move. It was a clumsy looking object though and just seemed to float. I went out my front door with the camera but the object was a dot in the sky by then, I started clicking anyway. For that couple of minutes there was no traffic and the street seemed quiet. I ran across to the neighbours house and watched it with two more people. One of them said it was a kid's balloon because he could see the string. He'd only been watching it for a minute and had rushed outside for a look when he saw me running with my camera. I didn't tell him it came out from the side of his house and that it was the size of a car when I first saw it. It was not kid's balloon.
