5 NOVEMBER 1990 - PENYRHEOL, GRIFFITHSTOWN

Around 6.30 PM.

A 15-year-old girl at home in Spring Terrace, Penyrheol and was looking up at the sky through the patio doors, watching for fireworks when she saw a dark grey, hexagonal-shaped craft hovering at a high altitude. It was to her left as she looked out of the door and at an elevation of about 60-70 degrees. It was huge and didn't look too far away from her. The object had several multi-coloured lights around it which were moving and very bright like spotlights. She could hear a slight humming noise. It stayed there for several minutes. The girl called her mother, who was making the tea and she came out and saw it also. After several minutes the object started making a 'skimming frisbee' type motion and moved at speed, first one way then the other before flying off at a high velocity over the mountains which lay to the west.

"The speed was incredible, far faster than any plane or helicopter I have ever seen...pretty much gone in one or two seconds once it started to move off. We were absolutely dumbstruck, never seen anything like it before..."

She described it as being like a 3D 50 pence piece but her mother thought it was more like a saucer shape.

They decided not to report it but the next day they heard on the local radio that several people had reported it.

8 NOVEMBER 1990 – COOMBE MARTIN, DEVON – BRISTOL CHANNEL – WALES
5.50 PM.
Cloudy sky. A husband and wife with two friends were outside their house at Combe Martin, north Devon, when they saw two triangular shaped objects with lots of white lights around them and red lights on ‘cockpit’ and tail, in the sky above Combe Martin.
They were slow moving and headed towards Chivenor and then out over the Bristol Channel towards Wales. They were viewed through binoculars. The wife reported it to RAF Chivenor the following morning. Chivenor had a helicopter up at the time of the sighting, but the pilot did not see anything.
