SOME of the sightings in South Wales reported to the Ministry of Defence and to UFO websites:
A strange bright light was seen coming straight across the sky in Lisvane, Cardiff, at 5pm on Tuesday, December 11.
A UFO was spotted on September 9 in the St Mellons area of Cardiff at 4am. What the witness thought was the brightest star in the sky suddenly started moving up and down and side to side swiftly and then flashing lights appeared around it like camera flashes.
A silent bright orange globe-shaped light was seen by a 41-year-old in Wildmill, Bridgend, on February 2. The woman said: “It just glided slowly over my mother’s house, I’ve never seen anything like it before ever. I can’t explain it at all. It gave me a weird feeling witnessing it.”
Lights were seen dancing around the sky in Cardiff on April 3, 2006, at 11.45pm. One light sharply changed direction and was then joined by two more blurry orange lights which danced around each other before flying off.
A pensioner and two others saw around 40 lights in a cigar shape in the sky moving down the Garth Mountain at speed for 30 minutes in March 2006. They disappeared then reappeared.
A bright blue object that broke into three to four segments and then disappeared above Cardiff, on February 20, 2005, at 9.50am.
Two UFOs were seen in Cardiff in July 2005. The female witness said she was not mad, the two UFOs were not planes and she knew what she had seen. Another UFO was seen in Tyla Garw, Pontyclun, and in Cardiff in the same month.
More than 16 drivers stopped their cars to look at a UFO above a busy road to the west of Cardiff on October 14, 2004, at 10pm. It was extremely large, silent, and was flying thousands of feet up across the sky.
A large flash of light which turned into a grey object descending over Cardiff Bay with trailing smoke behind it, travelling fast, on September 8, 2004.
A silent object was seen in the sky by a couple in their garden in Barry. The bright, star-like object started coming towards them and looked like a box kite with no fuselage. It flew west towards Cardiff Airport and was 2,000 to 3,000 feet above them and going quite fast overhead at 3.20pm on September 5, 2004. Cardiff Airport told the man that nothing had been seen at the airport or on radar.
