MARCH 1982 - CROESYCEILIOG, GWENT
Exact date in March not known - ignore '01' in date panel.
16-year-old Anthea Bailey of Turnpike Road, Croesyceiliog was out for a walk when she saw a revolving circle of flashing lights in red, blue and white.
"It was some 300 feet above the ground. I can only describe the way it was travelling as a stuttering sort of movement. I could see it for approximately three minutes. Then it circled over police headquarters and went off. There was no way it could have been an aircraft."
Cardiff-Wales Airport reported that at the time of the sighting there was no aircraft in the area.
