31 OCTOBER 1977 ABERDARE
31 OCTOBER 1977 – ABERDARE
At approximately 7.15 pm boys Simon and Richard May (nine and eight respectively) of Aberdare ran into their house saying they had seen a UFO. As they were playing with other children that night they saw the object moving slowly towards them and continuing on in the direction of Glynneath to the west. It made no sound at all as it passed overhead.
Simon drew a sketch of what he saw that night. The sketch described a circular object having nineteen small white lights around the rim, with three very bright white lights towards the rear of the object underneath, and a slowly pulsating single red light off centre towards the front of the object positioned in the direction of travel.
