1999 - Reports: 21


1999 – WAUNARLWYDD
One night, not long after they were married, about 1 or 2 AM, Darren (see the Crofty sighting in 1988), 26-years-old, was in bed with his wife at home in Waunarlwydd and was awoken by a bright light which lit up their front bedroom window, accompanied by a humming sound.
His wife couldn’t move, but was awake. Both then went back to sleep. In the morning, she asked, “What happened last night?” and they talked about seeing the light, but could not remember seeing anything else. Darren’s tattoo on the top of his left arm, felt raised up and sore for good part of the day, it felt inflamed as if it had only just been done.
This case displays classic elements of an abduction scenario, light seen in room, immobility, lost time and amnesia, and physical effects. It deserves further investigation especially as Darren has stated that his sighting in 1988 also suggests a missing time episode. At present however, Darren is unwilling to undergo hypnotic regression

He saw a disc-shaped object, bluey silver in colour, moving in a straight line. Witness said it was definitely not a star or planet, displayed no lights and was too high to have made an audible sound. It moved to the east and disappeared, moving too fast to be a plane.
