The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
Was driving home along the m74 motorway around 10.30pm. me and my girlfriend were the only ones in the car. before we reached the cut off for motherwell we could see in the sky a strange bright light that seemed to appear from nowhere. it got incredibly bright so much that i thought it was the moon at first. however it was far too small to be the moon and it continued to get brighter and brighter before dimming slightly. it then gave a brief flash before disappearing completely. my girlfriend and i both witnessed the event. it was too bright to be from an aircraft and no planes or helicopters were in the area.
