2000 - Reports: 9


11 JANUARY 2000 - SWANSEA BAY
 
Sion Thomas, a law student in his thirties, was returning home from work. Sion noticed a large, silent, cherry-red light above the sea. It appeared reasonably close to the shore and in the general direction of Swansea County Hall.
“I stood for a few moments trying to ascertain what it was. You can imagine my surprise when the large light separated into two distinct objects, which flew off in different directions without a sound.
Intrigued, I rushed home and ran up to the lounge window of my flat [top of Mount Pleasant], in time to see one cherry red light heading towards Mumbles and the other heading for Port Talbot. I considered many possibilities, including a midair refuelling exercise, but cannot fathom the absence of sound.”

APRIL 2000 - LLANDUDNO

Robert and Susie Hale, of Ffordd Elizabeth, Llandudno were walking on Invalid's Walk, a footpath on the western slopes of the Great Orme, when they spotted what they described as a vivid ball of light hovering above the cliffs. Robert said: "Previously we had been sceptical about UFOs but these sightings made us think perhaps they do exist, so we started to keep a look out for anything else unusual."

26 AUGUST 2000 - LLYN CEFNI, ANGLESEY
A member of staff of Coleg Menai in Bangor saw a "fireball or meteorite" come in from the direction of the Snowdonia mountains. After it had been spotted in the air, the object "followed a fairly shallow trajectory and then plunged into Llyn Cefni, which was down the slope from where we were sitting, and approximately 80 m away. The object appeared much bigger than the houses and farm buildings which were on the opposite side of the lake, and towards the end of trajectory almost appeared to be flaming, rather than glowing." The object was described as 'black and spinning'. The witness reported it to RAF Valley.

6.57 PM.
Jillian Morris (51), with her daughter saw a round white object, twice the size of Venus moving across the sky without stopping, and flickering.  It was observed over the coast. It then changed colour to a dark orange and shot off vertically. No navigation lights were visible, and she was sure it was not a satellite as it moved erratically. Duration of sighting: 9 seconds.
