1971 - Reports:4
16 AUGUST 1971 - LLWYNGRIL, MERIONETH
Late evening. Good visibility.
A sighting by a family of four on holiday. Shortly after sunset they noticed a bright yellow-orange cigar shape with a spot at one end - this 'spot' being only visible through binoculars. The object moved very slowly across the sky, taking some twenty seconds to disappear. A further twenty seconds later, a similar object appeared some 10 degrees west of the first, fading out half a minute later. Distance was estimated by the Lleyn Peninsula opposite and the objects could have been twenty miles away, at which distance they would have been over half-a-mile long!

8 SEPTEMBER 1971 - LLANFAIRFECHAN
Around 9.30 PM.
The witness and his fiancee saw an oval white object in the sky some 35 degrees above the horizon to the north - seemingly obscured by haze like a bright bulb seen through frosted glass. Its apparent diameter was that of the full moon. After watching for ten minutes they made a phone call, after which the object was still visible but nearer the horizon and somewhat flattened.

Two witnesses from Newport, Mrs A.B. and Mrs M.J. were driving along when they saw a cone-shaped object, moving slowly, blunt end first, towards Twmbarlwm Mountain, behind which it went, out of sight. It was red in colour.
