OCTOBER 2001 – COCKETT, SWANSEA

1 AM. One night in October 2001, weather dry and clear. Mark Rayworth, aged 26, was driving his car up Heol-Y-Gors, towards Cockett. He saw what he described as a large orange ball, similar to the sun, high up, in the direction of Cefn Coed Hospital. He continued his journey up to Townhill, and towards Cockett, where he had a good view of the object. He stated the object was almost as big as the height of the Cefn Coed tower building which was below it. As he watched, the object shot up vertically, turning colour to white as it did so, leaving a swirling, quickly evaporating white vortex in its wake.
