Case ID:





At dusk after sunset.

Sandra Adams-West was in her flat in Port Talbot and saw through the window which faces west towards Swansea, a light in the sky, just above the sea. She was unsure of the exact location of the object but was sure it was in the vicinity of Swansea. It appeared as a light, and quite large, appearing to be just a few hundred feet in altitude. It was moving towards the south (her left), along the horizon of the land which skirts the west side of Swansea Bay, behind it.

At times it remained still for periods of time and then moving at a leisurely pace to another point, remain there and then move again. She managed to take a photo of the object. She observed it for about 15 minutes through binoculars as well. It eventually got to a point near West Cross area then all of a sudden it was gone.

Sandra is an American citizen who has been resident in Port Talbot for about 12 years, and interestingly, is an ex-USAF officer, having served at Edwards AFB in the early 1980s. She said she knows her aircraft and was sure the object she saw was not a helicopter or plane.

Subsequently we received another report of a light seen in the area after Sandra's sighting.
