UFO OVER NORTH-WEST SWANSEA - 6 APRIL 2017
SUFON's own Mike Maunder was walking his dog in Townhill, Swansea and was heading home in Gwent Road, looking at the view to the north from his position high on the hill. He noticed what looked like a white or silver disc-shaped object to the north-west, over the area between Fforestfach and Penllergaer Woods, or even a bit further.
The object was 'whizzing in and out of a cloud (as if using it for cover), about six or seven times.' It was moving at speed and making some really sharp turns, covering distances rapidly, only visible for short periods before diving back into the clouds.
He is sure that it was not a bird or anything like a drone. It's size he compared to a motor bike or large trailer. He stood, watching the object for about a minute, then it disappeared or stayed in a cloud. He waited for two minutes to see if it came out again but it didn't.
Mike took a photo (see attached) on 3 May 2017 to illustrate the view that he had.
He said: 'As it happens there`s a cloud roughly where I saw it (smaller one of the 2 ). The cloud was higher on the day and I`d say more or less over Penllergaer woods area.'
