Title SUMMER 1953 - BRISTOL CHANNEL OFF LLANTWIT MAJOR
Location BRISTOL CHANNEL OFF LLANTWIT MAJOR
Tags Sighting UFO Saucer 
Date Saturday, 1st of August 1953

Exact date in summer not known - ignore '08/01' in date panel. Year is approximate - could be 1954.

About 5 PM.

An 8-year-old girl named J.C. was playing at her friend's house in Llantwit Major and was sitting in the front porch, which faced south towards the coast about a mile distant. They noticed an object in an area of the sky which would have placed it on the coast or over the sea. They called her friend's father to come and see it. The object looked cigar-shaped but there were dark blobs, spots or circles moving along it, which showed that it was actually a rotating disc-shaped object. It was hovering in one position as they watched it for a few minutes. The father ran back inside to get his binoculars, but as he returned the object disappeared.

RAF St Athan and Llandow airfield are very close, so the witnesses were very used to seeing all kinds of aircraft in the sky, but this looked like nothing they'd ever seen before.
