Tags Sighting UFO Lights Orb 
Date Wednesday, 16th of October 2002


Could be 2003 as witness not sure. 7:30 PM. Clear sky. Jonathan Austin, 39, was going for an evening walk to Skewen from his home in Trallwn, and was proceeding along Crymlyn Road. He was near the bridge over the Swansea District railway line when he saw two very bright white lights hovering over the BP Llandarcy oil refinery on his right hand side, at an elevation of about 45 degrees.

The lights were side by side and moving very slowly up and down in a floating motion whilst moving slowly away to the south towards Swansea Bay. He watched them for a few minutes as he walked along, until he was no longer in sight of them. There was no sound or flashing navigation lights apparent.

A few days later he said there was a report in the South Wales Evening Post relating how others had seen it but it had been explained away as a helicopter. This explanation does not fit what he saw, in his view, due to the fact that there was no sound or flashing navigation lights.

We can establish the correct dating of this sighting once the referred-to newspaper article is found.
