KILVEY HILL, SWANSEA TO LLANDARCY, NEATH

Sighting,UFO,Lights,Triangle

5.45 PM

Mrs. Margaret Gaskins, of Lucy Road, Skewen, said her children 14 year old Leanne and 10 year old Ceri were watching television when they spotted strange flashing lights in the sky at about 5.45 ppm. “They came running into the kitchen full of excitement,” she said. “At first I didn’t believe them, but when I looked out of the window I could see a sphere of flashing lights which travelled from the Kilvey Hill area over to Baglan Bay.”

The whole family were hanging out of the windows of their flat for a better view and soon neighbours were also peering out.

“It was all very exciting,” said Mrs. Gaskins, “We couldn’t believe what we were seeing.”

“Later I heard that a Sea King helicopter from Brawdy had been in the area. At first I thought the flashing lights must have been from that,” she said. “But then I was told the helicopter was not over Swansea Bay until 6.20 pm.”

“I don’t believe in UFOs. There has got to be a logical explanation for it, but I can’t explain what it was I saw.”
