Welsh UFO sightings from 1944. For sightings from other years please click HERE.
Royston Jones, then 16, was waiting for a bus into Cardiff for work. The sky was a bright blue when he saw several 'grey half moon shaped in a line across the sky'. The of them were glowing over a mine's slagheap, accompanied by small ovals of white lights.
The line of half moons then formed a circle with a black hole in the centre, into which a black cigar shaped object was sucked. 'It seemed like a vortex to him, as eventually only the black hole remained, which then expanded and sucked in the half moons.' Gradually this hole faded into the distance.

Royston Jones was 16 in 1944 in the small village of Penywaun in the Aberdare Valley. He was awaiting the bus to take him to work at Cardiff. The sky was a bright blue, when he saw several grey half moon shapes in a line across the sky. Two of these were glowing over a mine’s slagheap of ash and rubble. A pit escalator was busily going up and down working on this man-made hill. He could see small ovals of white lights accompanying it. The line of grey half moons had now formed a full circle, with a black hole in the centre, into which a black cigar was sucked. It seemed like a vortex to him, as eventually only the black hole remained, which then expanded and sucked in the half moons! Gradually this hole faded into the distance. During the duration of this display, everything around RJ seemed to be absolutely still, the birds had ceased to twitter, and there was not another soul in sight, but this is not as mysterious as it may sound, this was after all a small Welsh valley village, so believe me it is quite an event in our areas of rural Wales to see a person walk down the road.
After this he started having out of body experiences and the ability to see impending disasters / sorrows, which he hated. On the plus side he found he could faith heal. He was brought up in a humble mining family, who all belonged to the Salvation Army. He didn't watch TV or read newspapers, but nonetheless became a deep New Age thinker. He declined to attend UFO conferences and meetings saying "he did not want to be influenced by other people's talks, he felt they would no longer be able to channel in so directly to him. Who are 'they', while there is no doubt in RJ's mind, they are simply Space Intelligences, he is certain they have been contacting him since 1944. Again he feels he was selected, is controlled and monitored by Them, and there is nothing he or any human being can do about this."
In 1987 RJ went into hospital for a hip replacement. "On the 17th November RJ was wheeled on a trolley to the pre-operation room, where two nurses were to give him an injection. They then saw RJ rise out of his body and go through the ceiling. He saw himself "on a bed of mercury" with a strange thin tall Being rectifying the things that were wrong with his body! They almost fled in terror, and would have if there had not been another patient there. Then they saw the top half of his etheric spirit sink back into his body, as they wheeled him into the Theatre. In the Operating Theatre RJ was given another injection and put under anaesthetic, when he again felt himself floating out of his body up to the ceiling, from where he watched his entire operation. The Surgeon had some students around him, and he told them "This man has healed himself, only his hip needs replacing." Afterwards, the Surgeon came to the ward and asked RJ a lot of questions about UFOs; he explained that he had been talking about them under anaesthetic. RJ then dumbfounded and the students, by describing what they did, said and stood during his operation.
