9 JANUARY 1978 – NEATH

7.15 PM. Five people were in Addison Road, Melin, Neath. One of them, 20-year-old Gary Jones, of Walters Road, Neath, was repairing his car and saw an object in the sky.

Gary Jones: “It had three main lights which were flashing. It looked like an aeroplane at first, but it couldn’t have been because there was no noise.”

He described the UFO as having a straight bottom with the sides rising to a triangular shape. It was white in colour.

Within minutes of the object moving off in the direction of Jersey Marine (south-west), another came into view travelling on the same course. Similarly shaped, it hovered in the sky before following the path of the other UFO.
