Is it a bird? A plane? Scotland asks ‘What is that light in the sky?’

AN avid sky-watcher took to social media last night after spotting a streak of light in the sky over the Moray Firth.

IT’S amazing what excitement something unusual in the sky can cause.

Last night, friends of the Scotland From The Roadside page got in a Facebook frenzy after this ‘»fireball» dropped from the sky.

The original poster, Reg Connon, uploaded some pictures from Macduff on the Moray Firth coast , and asked «Last night about 10pm dot in the sky — any ideas what it is?»

The (more than 120) answers he got ranged from an aeroplane reflecting the sun to a passing International Space Station, aliens landing in a UFO and even Superman.

Some thought it was a meteor and others blamed a ‘second coming’.

The most plausible explanation came from Steve Balfour, who worked out which plane it could have been.

The consensus was that it was a plane caught in the sunset.
