Michael Hopkins:

'Returning from an evening's performance at a Working Men's Club, I had dropped off the vocalist in Church Village and made my way home over the Maindy via Maindy Road. After joining Llantrisant Road, I descended the steep hill known as the Graig Hill, and as I approached a bend I noticed an object slowly flying through the night sky heading north-west. I stopped the car and got out for a better look.

The object took the form of a cylinder with illuminated port-holes along the side [flying over Pontypridd]. The rear of the craft appeared to be hollow with a vivid blue glow emanating from it - maybe a form of propulsion? The sky appeared quite clear and there was no noticeable sound. At that time of the morning, I have observed there is normally very little sound.

I watched the object until it disappeared up the valley.' [Rhondda Valley].
