There was no sound or flashing lights. He could clearly see it was black against the lighter dusk sky (sunset is at 6.23 PM).

17 MARCH 1986 - RUDRY COMMON, CAERPHILLY. Evening - no time given. Mrs Marina Davies of Rudry Common, near Caerphilly was in her car with her 10-year-old daughter, Julia, a friend and another child. They were travelling up a lane near her cottage when they stopped to watch two unusual lights for 15 minutes. Marina: "We saw two bright head-lights and started reversing back. I thought it was another car - but then the lights shot up in the air. Then suddenly the lights shot off in different directions before flying away. I'd never seen anything like it before even though we often have aircraft over here. I'm convinced it was a UFO although I would like to think it was on our side."

Rhyl

This occurred right in the centre of Rhyl, a busy lively seaside town, very popular with Midland and Merseyside people for summer holidays. Mrs Maria Parkin a Dutch lady contacted Emlyn Roberts, a local newspaper reporter who is a contact of mine. 

He immediately put her in touch with me so that I was able to go over at the time. At 7.30 a.m. on the 22nd October Mrs Parkin got up, as she has formed the habit of feeding birds in her small back concreted yard.  Literally hundreds of sparrows and tits wait in the two large oak trees just over the wall and in her rear neighbour's garden.  

When she went out that morning, everything was deadly quiet and there were no birds.  Curious she walked down the path, when very slowly what she could only describe as a slim gold bar about 3 to 4 ft long, with blunted ends, came from behind the oak tree and slower still passed in front of the second oak tree, and still very slowly it moved off towards busy Wellington Road, which is full of shops and then on towards the direction of the sea.

On the 23rd in the morning exactly the same thing happened.  She was by now feeling very afraid.  Her son rang her from Prestatyn during the day to tell her his neighbours had seen the same object in their garden .

"Feeling thoroughly relieved that at least other people beside herself had been subjected to this". Mrs Parkin asked me in a very disturbed way, "What were Official people doing about this, what were Governments doing, and what were they, surely some sort of spying device?"
