20 JANUARY 2014 - NEWQUAY, CEREDIGION
Around 5 PM.
Witness called Wynn.
'Walking down towards the quay Monday night about 5-ish saw a weird orange globe over the sea close to the horizon.
Thought it was a boat or maybe a star or something but it then moved north towards Aber [Aberystwyth] so I think it could have been a UFO.'

20 JANUARY 2014 - CHURCH VILLAGE
7 PM. Clear night.
A witness saw an object which was boomerang or V shaped. It had a constant orange or yellow uniform glow along length of shape. The witness thought it was a Chinese lantern at first but was moving too quickly and flying back and forth over woodland area before descending down at approximately 60 degrees angle. The witness said it was definitely not a bird as the shape was rigid and luminous.
The witness discounted the possibility it could have been a remote controlled aircraft or drone, as it had a continuous glow, and went to area in daylight, and found that it is all woodland.
'It rose toward the trees and I thought it was a lantern but speed was too quick. Then travelled a few hundred metres, turned back and forth like a bird over a hundred metres several times but the shape was rigid. It had a continuous glow along its length. Called two mature adults to look at it. Where the area was you would have to walk a fair distance in the dark to area to fly a model plane, which you would risk damaging.'
A detailed investigative report by Dave Hodrien is available on the BUFOG website.
3 MARCH 2014 – TREBOETH, SWANSEA
Tom James, aged 68, was at home in Heol Cnap, Treboeth, and was putting the rubbish out just after 7 PM.
He looked up at the stars and was drawn to a patch of sky towards the north-east. He saw a white light, like a satellite, shooting across the sky towards the north-west, but much faster than a satellite.
He said it was not a meteorite because it left no trail. He stood there wondering if his eyes were playing tricks, when about a minute later he saw another.
This came from the same direction and then suddenly stopping, and shooting shot back at an acute angle of about 20 degrees, making a ‘V’ turn without stopping, and shooting back out of sight.
He said it was fast, and moved at the same speed forwards and backwards.

15 MARCH 2014 - BRITISH MOUNTAIN, TALYWAIN
Gareth and a friend were taking a drive over British Mountain from Talywain and noticed how strange the sky was as there was yellow lightning in the distance towards Blackwood, and what seemed to be clouds moving like waves over the Mountain. Gareth stopped the car and they watched for a while. Within a few minutes the car was enveloped in a thick fog and they noticed a constant blue flashing light within the fog, which lit up the car. Gareth put his window down and looked out. He noticed that the area above them was clear of the fog. As the fog began to clear, he noticed out of the corner of his eye, a turquoise blue ball in the sky over Talywain and Pentwyn area. The two witnesses watched in amazement as the ball rose up in the air, stopped and then grow brighter. It then looked like it 'dispersed' in every direction, without a sound.
The next day they met up with friends who said that they too had seen the strange blue ball but they explained that it was hovering low over Talywain for a while, moving back and forth.

15 APRIL 2014 - WALLIS, NORTH PEMBROKESHIRE
Elyse O'Neil, 26, was standing outside her house in Wallis, near Woodstock when she saw an unidentified flying object hovering over a large tree near the bottom her garden.
She said: 'I was standing in the garden at 6.45am smoking a cigarette when this thing shot across from the moor over on the right, and stopped right in front of me. I ran inside the house to get my phone, but there wasn’t enough battery left to film it, but there was enough to take pictures, so I started snapping away,” she said.
Elyse described the UFO as being the size of a car and was 'spinning around like a topper.'
She said, "As I watched it, it split up into two pieces and then it went back into one. It then shot off into the sky in the blink of an eye. It just went up and up until I couldn’t see it anymore.
I’ve never seen anything like this before, it was a bright morning with clear blue skies. I’m sounding as if I’m crazy, but I’m just a normal girl living in the country.
My heart is still in my mouth.”
Elyse shared her photos of the UFO on Facebook, tagging various friends and family, and they were soon picked up by the national tabloids.
“I just want people to see what I saw,” she said, “and let them make their own minds up about what they think it was.”
24 APRIL - 26 MAY 2014 - PONTYPOOL
Over five nights between 24 April and 26 May, around 3 AM, Richard Salon Davies went to a hill near Pontypool with the intention of photographing the sunrise
"I went up there around 3 am on my own with the intention of catching a nice early sunrise. Upon my arrival I noticed really strange activity in the sky.
They were what appeared to be stars however way way lower, almost at horizon view point level of the human eye if that makes sense. Upon attempting to take photos of what I was seeing, I instantly felt very very uneasy almost as if I was not meant to be taking these photos.
Now I found this just to be myself making it up in my mind as I would not go as far as saying I was a skeptic up to this point, but definitely struggled to believe in this area of life (aliens).
....I felt a strong presence around me as I took the photos, now as a result I got into my car for safety. Once in the car it felt like I was being watched, I looked into my wing mirror of my car and I could clear as day see something stood in near by bushes watching me, as I took continued footage of the UFO activity.
Now what happens next is hard to believe and just to show the level of almost my own disbelief. I had to take many photos. "
Richard asserts that he has not done anything to the photos. Since that first night he returned to the same location on eight different nights and he said has always seen UFO activity and has taken over 100 photos.

EARLY SUMMER 2014 - SWANSEA
Clear evening. Sleician Cullen who lives in the Port Tennant area of Swansea, east of the city centre, thinks he had this sighting in the early part of summer 2014, due to the fact that it was getting dark at about 8 pm, the approximate time of the sighting and was warm and fine. He had taken his dog to Maesteg Park in Port Tennant and it was running around in the rugby field at the top of the park when Sleician saw an object in the sky heading over Kilvey Hill and over the city centre heading west.
Sleician described it as a large cube-shaped object, about the size of a house. It moved very slowly over the city heading towards Gower. It was dark brown in colour and had lighter shades on different faces. He could make out markings like squiggles and lines on its sides. There was no sound and it did not spin or turn, but stayed on an even keel.
It travelled on a level path, about 1-2,000 feet in altitude. Sleician said that what struck him was that as it moved away from him towards he west, it didn't diminish in size, and was just as large over Brynmill (to the west of the city centre) as it had been over Kilvey Hil. However, once past Brynmill it rapidly got smaller until he could see it no more over the Gower Peninsula. In all it had taken 20 minutes to move from Kilvey Hill until it disappeared from sight in the distance.

4- 5 JUNE 2014 – HAVERFORDWEST TO SWANSEA
Gavin Davies was in bed and saw a light through the window.
A bright, star-lie object was seen making sudden course changes. It made no sound and was estimated to be about 800 ft in altitude. Two smaller objects were seen ‘tracking’ the larger one and displaying some amazing agility.
Gavin: “My immediate suspicion was that it was the International Space Station but I checked and it had already passed. It is literally a UFO. I’m not saying it’s aliens but at this time we don’t know what it is.”
It was too bright to be a Chinese lantern and the ‘drastic course changes’ seems to rule out that possibility.
Gavin runs a website: www.theparanormalchronicles.com and investigates paranormal phenomena, including UFOs. He publicised his sighting in the Carmarthen Journal and got an article in the Mirror online.
Witness accounts have also made it apparent that the object was also seen travelling of Narberth, Whitland and Swansea after midnight.

21 JULY 2014 – MAYHILL, SWANSEA
This is the early morning image of the skies over Swansea which left an ex-soldier staring in amazement. The photograph, which was taken in the early hours of Monday, shows a shadowy object hovering several hundred feet in the air, over Llansamlet.
The witness said the object made no noise and soon disappeared. The photograph was taken by quick-thinking Paul Lewis, who snapped the object from the bedroom window of his home in Mayhill. Mr. Lewis, who was formerly with the Royal Armoured Corps, immediately ruled out the possibility the object was a helicopter or any kind of aircraft as there was no noise.
“It was very hot in my bedroom so I opened the window and noticed a strange, stationary object hovering above Swansea” he said.
“The object made no noise and my first notion was perhaps it was an exceptionally large bird of prey however the object remained stationary for at least five minutes. I thought that it was strange and it seemed to have something hanging below it so I grabbed my phone and I took several pictures of it. The whole time the object made no movement and no sound. I must have watched it for seven or eight minutes in total.”
After attending to his young son Caesen for a moment, Paul, aged 24, says the object disappeared.
“When you look at the picture it would be easy to suggest it might be a bird or kite, but then this would have to be a very large object and to remain stationary for so long was unusual,” he said.
“I doubt a bird of that size could hover for that long.
We would be talking about a huge bird. There is also something hanging beneath it also. I would like to know if perhaps anyone else who was up at that time and saw the object as I would like to know what it is.
I certainly will be keeping an eye out in future to see if the object returns.”
The strange episode has been highlighted by UFO enthusiast Gavin Davies, who runs the Paranormal Chronicles website. He said: “Some will see an alien spaceship and some will see a bird or a plane. It will be interesting to see if anyone else witnessed the object or has clear evidence, not speculation, on what it is.”

END JULY 2014 – PENCLAWDD
Date is approximate. Afternoon.
Heather Davies was visiting her parents who live in a terraced house, one of three, overlooking the road called Greenacres in Penclawdd.
Heather had just gone out to the front garden which overlooks the estuary to the north. The house is situated on the northern slope of a hill. There was a clear blue sky and no wind. She saw two perfectly round greyish spheres, reflecting sunlight, pass over her head from behind her, heading northwards towards Trostre on the other side of the Loughor Estuary.
There was no sound or flashing lights, and the spheres just continued on a straight path, not fast, out over the estuary, a couple of hundred feet in altitude.
She said she had a feeling that they were intelligently controlled, and they were travelling very close to one another, like the way the Red Arrows fly in formation, with wings almost touching. The sphere on the left fell slightly behind and below the other one.
They looked like solid objects with well-defined edges, no jaggedness or protrusions.
Heather watched them for about two minutes and didn’t take her eyes off them. Suddenly, about mid-way over the estuary, they just simply disappeared in an instant like a light being switched off.

SUMMER 2014 - TRALLWN, SWANSEA
About 6 PM or 7 PM. Still light.
Ian Brown was walking to the post office/shop in Trallwn Road, Trallwn, along a lane between Tyn-Y-Waun Road and Trallwn Road, facing east. He spotted an object in the sky ahead of him over the hill (Talycoppa), but could have been further away, possibly over towards Skewen.
It was quite high up and he thought it was completely stationary but as he looked more closely he found that it was moving very slowly sideways and then it stopped again.
He tried to take a picture of it but its colour was a very light grey with a posible sheen and it didn't stand out very well against the colour of the sky. He went to the shop and after he came back out looked again but couldn't see it.
The distance that it had moved made him believe that it wasn't a balloon, especially because of the manner of its movement. He also discounuted the possibility that it was a plane or helicopter due to its shape.
He drew SUFON a sketch of the object which seems to be trapezoidal in shape, with the bottom wider than the top.

15 AUGUST 2014 - COLWYN BAY
Approximately 7 AM.
The witness was walking along the beach at Llanddulas and had stopped to watch some sea birds diving into the water about 30 metres offshore.
"As I watched, a weird, solid structure appeared in the sky appeared above them to the north and moved slowly towards the beach. I thought at first it was a balloon, but it was very solid and metal looking. I quickly grabbed my mobile phone and took a picture of it as it turned left and moved in an easterly direction. it looked like it had a pair of dipped wings or something hanging down from it on each side, but it was was also a bit pointed at the front. It made a slight humming sound, and it had white and blue lights that seemed to glow or pulsate. As it turned to the east they changed to a yellow colour. I would say that I saw it for approximately 90 seconds and as it moved down the coastline. It did seem to change shape slightly. It then just disappeared about a mile away from my position on the beach. There were a couple on the beach who may have seen this too because they walked behind me as I was watching it. I think they were foreign though, because they were quite tanned and spoke to each other with an accent so I didn't say anything to them. I am familiar with aircraft and this was 100% no helicopter or fixed wing craft and certainly no weather balloon because this was moving in a controlled manner."
SEPTEMBER OR OCTOBER 2014 – KENFIG
Bright evening. Off-duty Police officer, ‘D’ was travelling by car along the M4 heading for Cardiff. He was passing Margam with the reservoir for the steelworks on his right when he saw an object ahead, to the right of the motorway, in the distance, over Kenfig, moving horizontally west to east (his right to left), 40 degrees above the horizon.
The object was a golden ball of light, which seemed to ‘explode’ but continued on its path, and cascading down golden particles like welding sparks, then it ‘exploded’ a second time, continuing on its path, still raining sparks, and ‘exploded’ a third time, after which it became a small white light, flashing on and off, which then drifted towards Porthcawl.
He had never seen anything like it before.

25 SEPTEMBER 2014 – FFORESTFACH, SWANSEA
Nigel and Susan Morgan were driving up Carmarthen Road in Fforestfach at dusk on his 50th birthday, having been shopping in a nearby shopping centre and were returning home to Gendros.
They were just passing the war memorial in slow traffic, facing east heading towards Swansea when Nigel, who was in the passenger seat had a feeling that he should look up, so wound the window down and put his head out.
Looking up, he saw a huge matt black triangle hovering about 70 feet up. It had rounded corners and had four off-white round lights, one in each corner and one in the centre, the lights weren’t bright, but just had a dim glow.
It was large enough to cover the two lanes on their side of the dual carriageway. The black body of the craft was dull, not reflecting any light. It followed them up the road for a little way, and near Fforestfach Cross, it “disappeared in a split second” as if someone had switched it off”, said Nigel, “I was still trying to comprehend what was going on, then, ‘click’ – it was gone.”
There was no sound coming from the object during the sighting. Susan did not see the object because she was concentrating on driving.

END OF SEPTEMBER 2014 – GORSEINON
Late evening. Off-duty Police officer, ‘D’ was driving in Gowerton, north along Victoria Road when he saw straight ahead and in the sky a bright white light, which he at first thought was a helicopter or plane. Noticing that it was stationary, he crossed the roundabout between Gowerton and Gorseinon and pulled into park at the entrance to Swansea Sound radio station to get a better view. It then started to move towards him.
He could now see another light next to it, presumably part of the same object, and he thought the lights could be at the ends of wings on an aeroplane, but there were no flashing navigation lights showing. It then turned and headed north east towards Garden Village. Now that it had turned, he could see another white light at the rear of the object.
He pulled out and followed it, turning right at the next roundabout and parking again at the cemetery. He got out of the car and it flew over is head, and it was now that he could get a better idea of what he was seeing.
He could now see that it was not a plane or a helicopter. He could not see the object itself, but only four white lights moving together, as if on the same object, and there was no sound, which ruled out plane or helicopter.
Three in a row and one at the rear and above the first three, like a triangle moving with one side first and one corner above and behind, as if it was leaning over.
He lost sight of it as it moved eastwards over the cemetery. He got back in his car and followed, stopping again at the Days car rental, but there was now no sign of it.

OCTOBER 2014 – CWMBWRLA, SWANSEA
Jason Williams was in the car park of Cwmfelin Social Club when he saw three lights in the daytime overcast sky to the east of his location, towards the Landore area.
From his viewpoint, looking over the roof of the club, he took a video of the objects. One appears to be tinged red, the other two, blue or white.
“I was in the car park of the Cwmfelin Club when I noticed them,” Jason said. “There was no reflection off my car or anything from me.
They were hovering around in the clouds, and eventually two disappeared but one remained in sight then it eventually went behind the clouds.
They didn’t seem to be those Chinese lanterns as they looked very high and a lot brighter than the lanterns usually are. They didn’t move like lanterns either.”

20 OCTOBER 2014 - MYNYDD ISLWYN, BLACKWOOD
'Sat with colleague in works van at Mynydd Islwyn covered reservoir having a coffee before starting work and I noticed what I thought was one of those small executive jets flying very low coming from our front left. I jokingly said to my workmate “Look out, UFO”, just to get his attention and to break the silence, so we were both watching it flying VERY slowly across our front for a few seconds, then I remarked that I couldn’t see any wings or tail on the object which my colleague also agreed with.
By now it had our full attention and I turned the radio in the van off to see if we could hear sound of any engines, but there was complete silence. It made it’s way past us then turned North West? towards Tredegar still travelling very slowly until it faded into the distance after about 5 minutes.
The object was reminiscent of a Toothpaste box (!) with a slope at the front end, it looked like one of the Space Shuttles, about the size of a large van/single decker bus and was all white apart from 3 or 4 black circles along the length of the side facing us….didn’t look aerodynamic at all really.
No lights, no sound, no visible wings or tail and I estimate it to have been no more than 1000 feet up in the sky.
Asked my colleague to draw what he saw a couple of days later and it was practically identical to mine. Gutted we didn’t take any photos on our phones but we were too busy watching this object, and surprised I haven’t seen any mention of it considering it was rush hour on a Monday morning over a busy town.
OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER 2014 – GARNGOCH, SWANSEA
8.15/8.30 PM. Dry evening – dark. Jason Torlop was driving his wife, Karen, to her work at Cefn Coed Hospital from their home in Gorseinon. They were going east along the Gorseinon by-pass and had just gone under the bridge at Garngoch when they saw three large, round, dazzling, off-white lights, 100 yards away on the left hand side. They were about 10-20 feet above the trees and were aligned horizontally in a row.
Karen said, “Oh my god, what the hell is it?” and she put her head out of the window for a better look. She thought at first it was a jumbo jet as it was so large – about 100 feet across. They could not see anything between the lights but had a feeling they were all connected.
Each light was about 4 – 6 ft in diameter. There were no flashing lights and no noise. There was other traffic on the road so others must have seen the lights. They could not tell if it was moving as they were in a moving car. It was moving it must have been slowly.
Jason returned the same way about 15 minutes later after dropping Karen in work and it had gone. They had never seen it before and passed that way regularly.

23 NOVEMBER 2014 - CAERAU, CARDIFF
The witness was waiting for a bus at a bus shelter in Heol Pennar, Caerau, along with a young couple and their 5/6-year-old child. The couple were talking to each other. The witness noticed the child staring at the sky and so looked up too. Looking to the left they saw two, "shimmering orb like balls maybe a few hundred feet apart from each other".
The witness first thought it was a late firework going off but then noticed how they seemed to dart around the black sky together. By this time the young couple had noticed them after seeing their daughter point to the sky.
The witness estimated that the objects were at least a mile away either above the local woods or over the motorway behind it. The witness is used to seeing planes going to and from Cardiff Airport and is also used to seeing police helicopters flying over.
The witnesses could not observe any more as the bus arrived.
