Robert Taylor Incident

Bob taylor's encounter with the mysterious spheres in dechmont wood near livingston in scotland, is probably one of the most written about cases of a close encounter in britain.

the case stands as one of the most intriging in british ufology.

On the 9th of november 1979, at around 10.30 am, robert taylor, a forestry worker employed by the livingstone development corporation parked his pick up off a track at the bottom of dechmont law, just off the busy m8 motorway. he walked up the lower slope of the forested hill with his dog, and as he emerged into a clearing an amazing sight greeted him.

By his account, as he emerged into a clearing he came across a strange metal sphere about 20 ft across "like a spaceship, a huge flying dome". It appeared to be made from a dark metallic material with a rough texture like sandpaper.

As Taylor approached, two smaller spheres, each about three feet wide, with protruding metal spikes like naval mines, dropped down from the mother craft with a "plopping" sound, rolled towards him and attached themselves to his trousers.
