Title 19 JANUARY 1983 – NIGHT OF THE TRIANGLES: SOUTH DOCK, SWANSEA
Location SOUTH DOCK, SWANSEA
Tags Sighting UFO Lights Triangle 
Date Wednesday, 19th of January 1983

Evening.

June Thomas, of Pentrechwyth Road, Bonymaen, Swansea, had just finished work as a cleaner at the Viscose plant at South Dock when she saw the mystery objects.
Mrs. Thomas said today she discounted theories put forward by Swansea Coastguards that the lights she saw in the sky were meteorites burning up as they entered the earth’s atmosphere.
“What I saw was two objects, very big objects, moving across the sky slowly and without any noise,” she said. “Call them flying saucers if you will, but they were definitely not planes or meteorites”.

June Thomas is now one of SUFON's regular attendees at meetings and has given us more information regarding her sighting. She actually saw three triangles, she just caught a glimpse of the leading one in the formation as it was obscured by a factory building. Because she managed to get a good look at the other two, it was these she did drawings of which appeared in the newspaper. The craft were out over Swansea Bay, heading south-east and she saw them turn to a more easterly course in the direction of Port Talbot (moving her right to left) until they too, like the first one, was obscured by the Viscose buildings.
