10 AUGUST 1977 – PORT TALBOT

In the early hours, four youths aged between 15 and 17 in Port Talbot saw a dome-shaped object with flashing lights on it creeping over the mountain above the town.


After hovering over the town for a while it shot along the sea front at high speed and then “acted in a highly suspicious manner” in the vicinity of the BP Chemicals plant at Baglan Bay before disappearing.

The youths were terrified by what they saw. They said the object was definitely not a plane and it was capable of travelling at very high speed and then apparently hovering on the spot.
