Around 20 mysterious objects have been spotted in the skies above the Scottish city in the past eight years, according to UFO enthusiasts
Baffling images of UFOs taken in the skies of the skies above Glasgow have long baffled people across the world.
Glaswegians are not easily led by tall tales of creatures from other worlds, although finding explanations for the unusual sights can be tricky.
In the past eight years, UFO logging site MUFON has logged 20 mysterious cases in the Scottish city.
In several cases, spotters were able to get pictures of the strange objects in the sky.
Here Glasgow Live looks at examples which have been spotted on camera.
1. The rapidly moving ball in the sky
Alien life on Milky Way’s ’water worlds’ could be possible, scientists believe
This picture was uploaded in March this year but related to an incident which happened around on Christmas day 2009.
The spotter says they were with a friend in a town near Glasgow and walking towards a residential area when a round, glowing object overhead began moving rapidly towards them.
They say it moved too fast to be a Chinese Lantern and was not a star or a comet.
They posted to MUFON: “It was like nothing we had seen. Much too big to be a star, definitely not a comet, too fast to be a Chinese lantern.
“As it became closer overhead it slowed down and descended before ascending very rapidly and vanishing into the clouds.
“We were both quite scared by it and shaking a little, even though we did not see it close up we both thought because of the direction and speed it was going it may land on top of us.
“We uploaded the photographs that were taken to our computer and they turned out pretty blurry, mainly because the zoom on the camera was not so good and possibly because of the speed of the object.
’It was not a windy evening, quite still and the object made no noise, and had no wings or anything like that.”
2. Seasoned stargazer spots UFO through binoculars

People who believe that God created the Earth are also more likely to believe CONSPIRACY THEORIES, study reveals
A seasoned Glaswegian stargazer, who regularly surveys the heavens through his telescope and binoculars, spotted something very out of the ordinary back in August 2009.
He was examining the skies with his binoculars, when he saw a perfect cube appear, move, accelerate backwards and then disappear.
The spotter said: “I saw a perfect cube appear right before my eyes! I was looking at Zubeneschamali, which is the beta star in Libra, when the cube just came out of nowhere
“Speechless, I quickly spotted it with the binoculars, through which I saw a brilliant perfect cube with an illuminated border.
“It changed colour from blue to aqua-green and stopped cold.
“People have told me it was a satellite but know satellites have a very smooth consistent speed and direction, satellites do not just appear in the sky at a single spot, then progressively drift, speed up, slow down and stop, they definitely do not change colour and noway can they change direction.
“If anything in the sky can reverse directing at sharp angles “instantly” its a fair to say its not man made, the force on the object would rip it apart.”
3. Craft with row of lights hiding in the clouds

If you look towards the left side of this photograph, at the bottom of the clouds, you can see a row of lights which arguably could be a UFO.
The spotter of this craft above the skyline did not notice the lights themselves in the first instance.
It was only later when clearing out his camera that he came saw them and uploaded them to MUFON in 2012.
The spotter said: “On finding these shots I put the image into Photoshop as I wanted to get a clearer look at the image on the left hand side in the clouds.
“I can say there is no way it could be an known aircraft.
“First thing is the size, then the faint out line and the order of the lights are not what I am aware of as standard configurations.
“It had me more than a little shocked.”
4. Ball of light over the Kingston Bridge

The sighting, which took place in October 2015, appeared to show a glowing ball, which the spotter likened to a ’smaller sun’ hanging over the Kingston Bridge.
The spotter told MUFON: “it was still a little misty but to the right of the Sun was another really bright object almost like another Sun but maybe half the size.
“I drove of like any other morning but five minutes later when I was facing south again the said object was still there.
“Bemused, I continued to drive but still observing when still in view, the object wasn’t moving and remained the same.”
