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

Evening.

Other witnesses that evening:
Rita Bradley of Finsbury Terrace, Brynmill, Swansea:
“I saw two triangular objects close together with lots of white lights towards Townhill. I could hardly believe it.”
Carol Batcup of Yr Aran, Dunvant, Swansea, said:
“I saw an object bigger than a jumbo jet over Killay, but moving too slowly to be an aircraft. It had flashing lights at the front and back.”
John Owens of St. Catherines Road, Baglan, saw the lights in the sky above Porthcawl. He said:
“What I saw was about 600 feet from the ground, huge in size and did not jave any engine noise, not like any civil or military aircraft I know. Besides, it was only moving at about 30 mph, far too slow for an aircraft. I cannot really say what it was....it was certainly phenomenal.”
Peter Trotman, of Bryncerdyn Road, Newton, Mumbles, said he was astonished to hear the claim that the sighting was meteorites. And Mr Kenneth Needles, of Verdi Road, Port Talbot, said he was also sure the UFOs were objects of some kind.
Mr Needles, who was in the RAF during the war, said:
“To be honest, I have no idea what the UFOs were, but they can’t have been aircraft.”
