END OF AUGUST 1997 – GORSEINON

Daytime, about 6.30 PM. Tom James was making cards for friends playing golf at Gowerton Golf Course.


It was a beautifully clear summer evening, with no clouds or wind. Looking to the north towards Gorseinon, he observed a white/metallic, cylindrical or cigar-shaped object in the sky, about 20 or 30 degrees above the horizon, moving from the direction of Loughor, over Gorseinon and continuing on towards Penllergaer, (west to east).


At first he thought it was a plane, but then noticed there was no tail or wings visible, and it was moving too slowly.


It took about 4 or 5 minutes to pass along its visible course, with the sun reflecting off its fuselage, there was no sound and Tom said it was apparently a cigar-shape, with angled ends to a rounded point at each end.


He continued watching it until it disappeared in the east. He did not call his golfing friends’ attention to the object as he thought it might upset their game.
