Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was traveling home from Aberdeen and was nearly approaching the east of Nairn when I spotted a orange glowing light to my left. I looked a few times and just instantly thought it was extremely weird. I turned up the Grantown road to try to get closer and once on the dark country road, I cut my engine.

In darkness I opened my door and lifted myself to the top of my van and just observed in quiet amazement at what I was seeing, an orange fireball like object traveling in a perfect line north-north-east, complete silence, no engines, no rotors, no nothing, but this amazing orange fireball object. The object went behind a cloud and I didn't see it again.

I reported it to Nairn police station when I got home. I checked the internet to see if it was on the news or something and I cannot believe the amount of exact same sightings on the internet. It is definitely not a Chinese lantern, nothing even like it. The orange flame like light was even throughout the object and flew at speed and if pressed I would say at between 1000 - 3000 feet.
