BAGLAN TO LLANDARCY
4 APRIL 2016 – BAGLAN TO LLANDARCY
7 PM. Light and clear. Mark Rayworth and his wife were having a meal in the high-rise Grape & Olive restaurant on the 29th floor of the Meridian Tower in Swansea Marina. Being at the top of the building they had fantastic views of the surrounding area.
Looking to the east, white flashing lights caught Mark’s eye.
They saw an object travelling from the Port Talbot direction over Baglan (their right to left), so heading south to north. It was in a position higher than the hills behind Baglan and was a long, dark, cylinder-shaped object with a white flashing light at each end.
These lights were bright as they could be seen even though it was still daylight. Mark repeated that it was long and so was not a conventional aircraft.
He said it seemed to stop at times but continued on its way towards Llandarcy and so out of sight behind Kilvey Hill. Mark said it looked like it was coming down, and so was descending.
