5 JANUARY 2016 – WAUNARLWYDD
9:20 AM. Broken cloud. Brian Harry was at home in Bevan Close, Waunarlwydd and had just let his dog out the back garden, which faces south-west. He was standing on the step of his conservatory, looking east in the direction of Cockett, and the morning sun.
At an elevation of about 80 degrees (11 o’clock high as he described it), high in the sky, he saw a solid-looking, round, silver object, quite large in his estimation, emerging from behind a high wispy cloud formation, moving slowly and gliding into an area of blue sky towards a thicker cloud formation to the right.
There was no vapour trail apparent. The sun was behind and to the left of the object. He said it was definitely a solid object.
He watched it for about 30 – 40 seconds when suddenly there was a bright flash, like an electrical discharge and the object disappeared instantly.
