1984 - Reports: 4
31 MAY 1984 – SWANSEA
Saturday [?] 8 AM.
A huge black triangle moved over village, no sound, three domed lights, solid.
Up to 500 feet away from witness, at treetop height. Moved in a straight path. Had three domed lights visible.
“Upon witnessing this event, I ran home approximately a quarter of a mile. Immediately drawing the family’s attention, but there was no sign of the object. The following day, Sunday, the object was reported in the national newspapers. It took too long to run home that night, the object should still have been visible as I monitored it all the way home. But in the seconds it took to call family it had gone.
Also I have a memory of a device, a circular magnetic device, I could draw from memory. That night it took too long to run home, I can’t remember how I got from the rugby field to my street, and the speed in which the object moved, it should have still been visible. Various people throughout the village also saw the object independently.”
[SUFON Note: 31 May 1984 was a Thursday, so the following day would have been a Friday, not a Sunday as stated in the witness account – and for it to have been reported in all the national papers on Sunday morning would have been impossible – some details must be incorrect].

JUNE OR JULY 1984 - CYNCOED, CARDIFF
The witness thinks it might be 1985.
Deborah Pursey was about 15 years old and was in class at school one Friday morning, on the second floor of Heathfield House High School in Cyncoed, Cardiff. She looked out of the window to her left (to the west) and saw that a mist had appeared over the school field. She then noticed an object shaped like an inverted cut diamond hovering just above the grass, to the left of a tree about 150 yards away. It was silver in colour, about 6-8 ft tall and made no movement or sound. The mist was just in the area behind the object.
Deborah said, "I don’t recall any features, it seemed streamlined."
She watched it for about a minute and pointed it out to the girl sitting next to her and they watched it together for a few minutes. The mist then cleared and the object was gone. She didn't see it arrive or depart.
She explained, "I remember that week some other sightings were reported, also on the news it said members of Parliament had reported seeing unusual objects. I don’t remember the exact date but in know it was a Friday. It may have been 1984 or 1985. Of course no one believed me, I was not a child who told lies so I thought I would have been believed."
