An object 'resembling the planet Saturn' was seen in the sky.

Wednesday 25th October, 20:00

Mr. David Morgan, of Lampeter, wrote to the Western Mail (04/11/1950):

"I was standing in the village of Bwlchyllan, overlooking the vale of Aeron. I saw what I thought were five or six stars in formation flying towards Cardigan Bay in a north-westerly direction. The lights were bright and distinct."

Sunday October 29th, morning
Killay, Swansea

Mr Bevan of Dunvant Road, Killay, was returning home from church with his son during the morning, when they saw an object in the sky. "It resembled the tail end of an aeroplane and when we first saw it the sun had caught it and it was shining like silver. The object was flying along very slowly, then turned in a slight arc. While we gazed open-mouthed at it, the object seemed to dissolve in mid-air."

Numerous witnesses saw two lights travelling in the night sky. Most said the objects were travelling at high speed and made no sound. After the report hit the press many more wrote in with their corroboration. 

 The South Wales Evening Post of November 1st 1950 reported:

Following a report by a member of the public of two lights travelling across the sky, Detective Sergeant Ambrose Davies, of Gowerton Police Station observed a single white ball of flame. 

It was much brighter than any star and after a few seconds was seen to break into two pieces.  A shower of reddish sparks were seen to the rear of the objects. 

The officer ruled out planets and meteors stating that there were definitely two objects in the sky and that they were joined by some kind of tether.

The Western Mail also carried a report in their November 1st edition, which was followed up by further articles over the next few days:

Friday November 3rd, 23:30

William George Johns, a newsagent of Tonna, with his wife, saw a brilliant flat disc like a plate in the sky over Llandarcy oil refinery at 11.30 pm. It was giving off rays like a chandelier and appeared to be about a foot wide. Even the clouds passing over did not blot out the object. He watched for about ten minutes, and the disc moved gradually towards Port Talbot (south-eastwards), its light becoming dimmer till it disappeared.

Three or four minutes later, looking in a south-easterly direction, a brief white glow appeared, like a shell burst at a tremendous height.

Mr Johns has frequently seen the sky glow from the furnaces opened at Port Talbot, but says this was quite different – indeed the characteristic furnace glow appeared later.
