1975 - Reports: 5


1975 - ABEREIDDY
Nick Thomas was with his sister travelling by car one evening along the coastal road on St. Bride's Bay. They observed for about 20 minutes a massive flourescent ball offshore from Abereiddy. The sphere changed form into a perfect rectangle and shot off at incredible speed to the horizon.
They reported the sighting to Randall Jones-Pugh

22 JULY 1975 - MACHYNLLETH
5 PM.
Trevor P.  - a young boy from Hutton in Essex, was on holiday with his family in the Cambrian Mountains of Mid-Wales during July 1975. The family journeyed to the area of Dovey Vale near Machynlleth. Trevor's parents were to view a cottage in the area for possible future accommodation while in Wales. The cottage was located on the A487 near Wylfa Hill a little to the west of Machynlleth (OS: No. 135 Ref: 738999).
Trevor decided to go for a walk and went up the 250 ft hill which lay to the south. He reached the brow of a hill and glanced over the ridge, puzzled by what he saw on the ground in front of him. Realising his vulnerable position he ducked behind a boulder and watched carefully. Not more than 50 ft away, was a strange stationary object apparently resting on the ground. It consisted of a large circular base, like a "paddling pool", approximately 40 ft in diameter, and 7-8 ft high, with large circular lights approximately 5 ft in diameter positioned around the base. Each of these were shining brightly, and each were of a colour not recognised by the boy. Evidently no light was cast off on to the ground. Between each light (there were about 7 in view) there were deep grooves or curves set into the base, which itself was "silvery" in colour and rounded at its edges.
On the base sat a hemispherical, transparent dome which, if viewed from a horizontal plane, rose vertically from the base, and then arched over into the hemisphere. At the central apex of the dome was another large light which seemed to be fitted to the apex from the inside, and not interfering with the curvature of the hemisphere. Again the size seemed to be about 5 ft across, a colour being emitted which was unknown to the boy. The dome itself seemed to be lesser in diameter than the base. In the centre of the base, inside the dome was a "big metal" unit about 15 ft long and 7 ft tall at its highest point. This consisted, from left to right, of a vertical side, eventually sloping away towards the right at a 45 degree angle, then levelling out into a horizontal top which stepped down twice in an irregular pattern. As stated it appeared to made of 'metal' being silver in colour. No marks, switches, knobs etc,could be discerned on the unit at all.
Also inside the transparent dome were two forms which appeared to be what have been termed "entities". These were described as looking like "massive pieces of jelly", irregular in shape and some 7 ft across and of a similar height. The forms were a translucent whitish colour, and inside them were hundreds of white discs like English-style "doughnuts" each possibly 6 inches in diameter. The masses were constantly changing shape to a considerable degree, although from the movement of the white discs it appeared that the centre of each mass remained inactive. No real shape or shapes could be attributed to the changing forms, other than that they were irregular. The surface of the jelly seemed smooth although Trevor is not certain on this point. Although the forms changed shape, their masses seemed to remain constant.No other details were visible.
One of the forms was in front of the metal unit, the other was behind, and half obscured. Trevor waited 20-25 seconds, scared but curious, still hiding behind a boulder. Then he noticed a "panel" or section which was beginning to open on the extreme right hand side of the base, slowly pivoting down about a horizontal axis towards the ground. This was about 7 ft by 7 ft in size. Trevor has no idea what he saw inside the base where the panel had opened. The movement took approximately 7-8 seconds to complete, after which the entity, which was in full view started "floating" towards the open section, gradually lowering itself down a possible duct or hatchway and out through the opening. Trevor now ran back down the hillside.
He said something to his father, then ran back up to the position on the hill. When it was again in view, he saw that the entity had moved back to its original position and the panel was now closed. He heard a strange constant noise like " a car 'revving' up but quieter". At that point the large circular disc of light on the object's side, together with the light on the apex, began to flash simultaneously in the colours of the surrounding countryside, i.e. green grass, brown soil, blue sky etc, which seemed to accelerate faster and faster and became larger and larger, until they were almost enveloping the whole craft, eventually blending more and more into the background, until the craft was no longer visible, or apparently there.
Evidently the lights did not take on the shape or forms of the natural objects, but just their colours. Trevor had incredible problems trying to explain this process, and no idea how really to express what actually happened. Nor had he had any idea regarding what happened to the objects inside the craft, and it seems that they too were enveloped in the strange light process.

SUMMER 1975 - GOWER
11.30 PM. Warm and still with little or no moon.
David J. was driving an open-top sports car with the top down, along the A4118 across Fairwood Common, Gower, heading north-east towards Swansea. He had just passed the entrance to Swansea Airport on his left, doing about 45 to 50 mph. Suddenly he felt and heard a violent rush of air above him and he was aware that something had passed over him about 40 or 50 feet up. It was totally silent except for the movement of air as it passed at speed. Looking in the direction that the object had gone, he could see a dark patchin the sky, obscuring the stars, and moving extremely fast from west to east. It had gone in an instant.

NOVEMBER 1975 - ABERAERON
10.30 PM. Clear sky.
The witness said this event occurred in the early winter of 1975, so maybe late October or November. 
David Harrison, a bus driver, had just finished his shift and had left the Crossville bus garage in Aberaeron for his home in Pen-Y-Fron, Talsarn, riding his moped. At Cilcennin, heading south-east something in the sky to his right caught his eye. He stopped his moped for a better look, and saw an object at two o'clock at about 45 degrees elevation. He described it as cigar shaped, and it had a row of circular lights along its upper half, which pulsated blue and yellow. The object was moving slowly on a horizontal course, in the direction of Aberaeron, from left to right. There was no sound and no navigation lights were displayed, which made David realise that it was not an aeroplane.
After watching it move slowly along for ten minutes, the object then suddenly shot upwards at an angle to the right, disappearing from view.

Three men travelling home from work. As they drove from Manmoel they saw a bright, flashing light above Rhiw Hill. The glow then flew eastwards at an incredible speed.
