Approximately 9.30 PM.

Robert Francis was with his partner in the car, driving south through Ynysddu in the Sirhowy Valley, heading for Cwmfelinfach, the next village down. He was just entering Ynysddu when they spotted an object, motionless in the sky about 100 to 200 feet in altitude, which they had to drive directly underneath. It was described as a dark coloured sphere. Robert looked for a tethering line underneath but could see none.

They continued on their way to Cwmfelinfach. Five minutes later they were heading back the same way and where they had seen the strange object, a green astra had parked on the side of the road, the driver presumably looking at something. Robert and his partner then noticed an orange ball-shaped light travelling upwards over Pengam Mountain in the north. As it got to about 300 metres in altitude the orange ball then turned into a dark-coloured disc, which travelled above the mountain towards the south-east in the direction of Newport and Cwmbran. Once the object was out of sight the car in front pulled off.
