Pitlochry UFO was 'Forestry Commission vehicle light'

UFO BUFORA said the 'mysterious' light was most likely a forestry commission vehicle

Investigators studying footage of a possible UFO seen above a Perthshire forest have come up with a more terrestrial explanation.

The strange light was recorded above Clunie Forest near Pitlochry by Adrian Musat on 5 November.

He sent the footage to the British UFO Research Association (BUFORA) for analysis.

The experts said the object was not alien in origin, but actually a spotlight on a forestry vehicle.

BUFORA said they were confident the light was actually within the trees and not above them.

The light is believed to have been on the top of the cabin of a wood harvester.

The Forestry Commission has confirmed it had tree-felling operations under way in the woodland at the time.
