Tags Sighting UFO Lights Triangle 
Date Monday, 1st of August 1983

Exact date not known - ignore '08/01' in date panel.

Around midnight on a warm calm night. The witness thinks it may be 1983 or 1984.

Guy Davis (18/19) was with his brother and two friends parked on the side of the road on a country lane somewhere between the A48 (east-west road in the Vale of Glamorgan) and St. Athan to the south. They were located in a shallow valley with low hills on either side. Suddenly appearing above a hill to their right, about half a mile away, was an intense white light at an altitude of about 300 feet. They got out of the car to look at it better.

Guy said it was really intense and bright and shone a beam of light down to the ground. The beam moved around as if scanning or looking for something. The light itself was more or less static but may have moved slightly. There was no sound or flashing lights. They watched it doing this for about five minutes, when the light and its beam suddenly switched off.
