1995 - Reports: 5


26 AUGUST 1995 – NEATH TO SWANSEA VALLEY
Clive Topper, a Neath taxi driver, was dropping off customers at 2.30 AM, when he saw a big green luminous ball with a vapour trail. He expected it to burst into bright light like a flare, but the vapour trail disappeared and the object sped away fast in the direction of the Swansea Valley to the north-west.
Clive’s sighting was corroborated by another driver, Ken Jarrett, who had also seen the object.

13 SEPTEMBER 1995 – WAUNARLWYDD
10 PM. Ruth Petherbridge of Swansea Road, Waunarlwydd, and her neighbours, Jonathan and Tracy Shepherd were walking their dogs when they saw white lights over Waunarlwydd Rugby Club field.
Ruth described it as a huge black object as big as the rugby pitch, with flashing lights around it and a circle of light in the middle. The dogs, Prince and Fudge, got excited about the lights and had to be put on their leads.
They went to get a neighbour, Julie Wagstaff to show her. Julie described the object as like a giant transparent jellyfish pulsating in the air.
It was suggested that what they saw was a laser light show that was taking place in Crosshands, but this was about ten miles away.
