1985 – PORT TENNANT, SWANSEA 5 or 6 PM. A man was driving home with his mother, to Bonymaen along Bog Road, near the site of Tir John Power Station, as they came round a bend in the road, they suddenly saw ‘an object’ near the ground which shot up in the air as they got near it, nearly hitting the car, before shooting off. The experience frightened them as they thought it was going to crash into them. No further details are known, of what the object was like etc, as the informant, the man’s sister, explained that her brother has now passed away, and their mother is in her 90s and suffering from dementia.

1 MARCH 1985 - MORRISTON 6.30 PM. Clear Sky. The witness and a friend’s husband were in a garden in a village location near Swansea, when they saw a round, white object, 3 or 4 times the size of a star, very bright, and moving backwards and forwards faster than a jet, in a position at a 45 degree angle over the DVLC building near Morriston. The witness could hear a sound like that of a piston engine, but not like a normal aircraft sound. They watched the object for about half an hour.

17 JULY 1985 - TREDEGAR 7 PM. Anthony Weed (14) was with about 12 friends playing football and saw a disc-shaped object in the sky at an altitude of at least 1000 ft. It was rotating as it moved slowly and deliberately through the sky. Anthony compared it to a huge dustbin lid. It was silver/grey in colour. There were no obvious lights visible, being a daylight sighting. They watched as it moved down the valley and out of sight. Duration of the sighting: 10-15 minutes.

28 DECEMBER 1985 - DYSERTH 12.30 AM. Two college students were returning home by car from their part-time work, when they saw an object shoot across the sky. The pair were at Dyserth crossroads in the Denbighshire village situated high above Rhyl and Prestatyn when the craft's movement attracted their eyes. The students said it was travelling at great speed from the direction of Meliden Quarry towards fields over the A547. As they were travelling by car, they followed the direction of the object which appeared to have a yellow glow at its centre with green spikes of light. After some miles the craft stopped, hovered and disappeared behind some cloud before re-emerging and apparently flying close to the ground before seemingly landing in an area known as The Meadows just off the A547. They plucked up the courage to stop at the scene of the landing and investigate further. But when they peered over hedging they could see nothing.
