8 DECEMBER 2007 – BRYN, PORT TALBOT
9.30 / 10 PM. David was with his wife and were driving from Maesteg with their 4 year-old daughter after having picked up David’s mother, brother Andrew and sister to stay with them in Pontarddulais. They had just passed the village of Bryn on the B4282, heading west and his passengers in the car suddenly said, “Look at the lights!”
David couldn’t see anything at first, so pulled the car in near a side farm track. All got out of the car and looked up. They saw two very large, low-flying, triangular formations of lights. Each triangle was formed of three amber lights, one at each corner, with a cluster of red and white lights in the centre of each triangle.
There was one flashing light in each of the two triangles, but more noticeable in the front one, which was ahead of the other, and staggered in formation. The amber lights weren’t bright and there were no beams coming out, more like a glow.
As they flew over, the front one ‘dipped its wings’ like a plane would, and as it did so, one light went out view. The two objects had come over the mountain from the south on their left, moving slowly in a straight, level profile. They headed north over the Afan Valley towards Neath, taking about five minutes to go out of sight. There was no sound at all coming from the objects.
A car went past them while they were viewing the objects. Everyone was staggered and talked about it for the rest of the evening.
David reported it to the MOD.
