Sighting,UFO,Cigar shape


Between 4 AM and 5 AM. Alun Morgan, of Heol Caegurwen, Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen, a member of the local Carmel Chapel, and the caretaker of two nearby factories, was on his way to work one morning.

He noticed, over the nearby Penllerfedwen Mountain a UFO which 'suddenly rose into the air and seemed to vanish.'

He recalled it as being cigar-shaped with blue flashes emanating from the sides, end and top.

Then, on other occasions since and early in the morning he has noticed similar manoeuvres by the samwe type of object.

Corroborating his story is a woman from the Garnant area who has reported seeing the same shaped UFO, also at about four in the morning, and another resident, Mr D. Pritchard, of Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen.

[Penllerfedwen Mountain is located south-east of the village of Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen].
