FIRST WEEK IN FEBRUARY 1977 - SWANSEA BAY
Exact date not known - ignore '01' in date panel.
'An Aberavon man has revealed that a week ago he saw a UFO, but had been reluctant to mention it until he learned a few days ago that he was not alone in having seen what can only be described as a phenomenon of some sort. Mr Arthur Sugg, of Sandown, Aberavon, a retired steelworks rollerman, told his story:
"I was out walking on the seafront with my Airedale Tuscan. It was shortly before noon and I was at the Briton Ferry end of the promenade.
The cloud was very low. It was not raining, but it was misty. I was looking out towards Mumbles headland when there was a break in the clouds. It was then that I saw what I can only describe as a dome-shaped object.
The top was larger than the bottom, something like the top of a spinning top. It seemed to have intermittent red stripes and was moving in a northerly direction. I watched it for between five and ten seconds until the gap in the clouds closed." '
