A mysterious green light in the sky was seen by numerous people on Saturday night (February 2nd), but nobody has yet provided an explanation for what it might be

Stornoway Coastguard had a call from Benbecula reporting a green flare, but established that a similar light had been reported from numerous places around the UK to other Coastguard stations, so no action was taken locally.

In the Western Isles there were a number of reports of sightings at around 11pm on Saturday, with the phenomenon spotted from Point, town and Ness among other locations.

There’s been no official report of what the green light in the sky could have been.
