Weston, Montgomeryshire

Hallucinations and a meteor... This account was collected by Robert Burton (aka Nathaniel Crouch) in his 1710 Admirable Curiosities, Rarities and Wonders in England, Scotland and Ireland:

In 1661, about sunset at Weston in Montgomeryshire, a great number of horsemen, about 400 paces off, were seen marching two a breast on the common, and were half an hour before the rear came up, seeming about 500; the spectators were amazed, thinking them roundheads going to release the prisoners at Montgomery, several ministers and gentlemen being in prison; on the top of the hill they had another full view of their horses of several colors; they marched in three companies, every division had two horse-colors; they appeared about a hundred yards from them: a man who was thatching a house all that day, said he was no soldiers march, neither was there any track of the horses: they deposed these particulars before the Lord Herbert.

A woman coming from Bishops Castle over the same common fell off her horse, being terrified with a blazing star, which she and six men saw, with a tail like an arrow, seeming just over their heads.
