11 JANUARY 1978 - TINTERN, GWENT
About 6.30 PM.
A group of children and young people saw an object in the sky above Tintern. They were just about to enter the village hall for a meeting when they all saw what 14-year-old Alan Carter from Tintern described as a disc-shaped object moving quite slow in the sky.
Flashing red, white, blue and green lights could be seen coming from it. The object was clearly visible for a few minutes before it eventually moved away behind a hill. All of the group saw it, including Alan's mother and another adult who was also with them at the time.
