|Title||JANUARY 2004 - MERTHYR TYDFIL|
|Date||Saturday, 10th of January 2004|
Exact date in January not known - ignore '10' in date panel.
The witness thinks it could have been 2005.
6.30 - 6.45 PM. Dark. Low cloud - had been raining.
Gari Jones was on his way home from work, having got off a bus and was walking down a hill, with a girl a short distance behind him on the path. Looking up, his attention was drawn to something in the sky. He could see five huge round glowing lights in a 'V' formation. Between the lights he could just make out a dark V-shaped object against the sky. Gari estimated that the object was at least 400 feet wide and 5-600 feet in length. The front of the object was the point of the 'V' and five circular lights were arranged at equal points along the body.
At first it was about a mile away, and he watched it get nearer and then fly directly overhead, then continue on into the distance before it was lost in cloud. It was moving quite fast, about 300-400 mph. Duration of the sighting was about 12 seconds. There was no sound. After the object had disappeared he turned to the girl behind him and asked her, 'What on earth was that?' They then discussed what they had just seen.
