8 FEBRUARY 1978 NEATH
8 FEBRUARY 1978 – NEATH
14-year-old Rebecca Griffiths, who lives in Woodfield, Eaglesbush, saw an object over the Cimla area of Neath at 5.45 pm. It all started with the dog barking at the front door of her house, and Rebecca went to the door and looked in the direction the dog was looking.
She saw a pink light in the sky and immediately called her mother to the door.
They both watched the object moving at a terrific speed in the direction of Morriston.
Her mother, Hilary Griffiths later described the object as having an oval shape, and making no noise. The dog was barking furiously and so maybe could hear something the human witnesses couldn’t.
Mrs Griffiths said the family lives away from other houses. “We are on our own in a field,” she said. “None of our neighbours saw anything.”
