9 JUNE 1977 – LLANDEILO

Bryn and Mauricette Jacob, of Salem, near Llandeilo had just returned from a jubilee celebration in the early hours.

Mrs Jacob said, “We had just returned home when I thought I saw a shooting star just outside our house. But I realised it could not be a shooting star because it was moving straight and slow.


It was light blue in colour and flashing and when my husband noticed it he started counting and discovered that there were three sequences of seven seconds between the flashes.”

She added that she had telephoned Cardiff airport afterwards and had been told that there had been no passenger traffic to the area but it could possibly be a military aircraft taking photographs.

Bryn Jacob, the swimming pool manager at Tregyb Comprehensive School, Llandeilo, said: “We do not claim this is a flying saucer but it was certainly very unusual. It was travelling north and flashing brightly in sequence.”
