One night between midnight and 1 AM, Paul , then living in a flat in Evans Terrace, Swansea, went to see to his one-year-old son who had woken up crying.

An object in the sky attracted his attention through the window. Looking out south-east across Swansea city centre and past Kilvey Hill, he saw what he described as a large cylindrical object, metallic grey in colour, pointed at one end and flat at the other, moving slowly in a westerly direction on a level course.

He estimated that the object was beyond Kilvey Hill so would have been over the sea in the vicinity of Swansea Docks.

The sky was clear with sparse clouds, little wind. A full moon was in the sky to the south and helped illuminate the object.

He said it was big, displayed no lights and there were no windows or other features apparent. As it moved slowly from left to right it passed behind Alexandra House (from his perspective – see photo), the large office block at the top of High Street , so wasn’t high in the sky, but perhaps 100 to 200 feet above the sea, and because of Paul’s elevated position due to his flat being on the side of a hill, he was more or less looking across at it rather than upwards.

There was no noise and he watched it for no more than five minutes as it slowly continued on its westerly course towards the west of the city, along the coast, until it moved out of his vision from the window.

He had never reported it because of his worry of being ridiculed.
