A meteorite shower prompted numerous UFO reports.

They're Lights, Jim, But Not As We Know Them - Helen Morgan

Gwent police were enjoying a quiet Sunday evening. Until 7pm last night, that is, when their switchboard was suddenly jammed with callers reporting flashing lights in the sky. Dozens of people from accross the southh of the county put forward various explanations for the spectacle. A plane crashing was the favourite, but there were also theories that the much publicised 2028 asteroid was making a premature appearance.

Inspector Ian Morgan, who was on duty at HQ in Cwmbran, said he checked with Cardiff Airport to make sure no aeroplane was in trouble. "They assured us that everything they had in the air was still in the air," he said. But a quick call to the Cardiff Weather Centre solved the mystery. Forecaster John Moreton confirmed there had been a metorite shower. He explained that when a meteorite hits the atmosphere at an angle, rather than straight-on, the results are often spectacular as it burns up.

"It is actually quite common. If you stand outside for long enough you would see one most nights," he said. Mr Moreton put the intensity of interest in the shower down to it happening on a cloudless night and relatively early in the evening. "If it had been clear over the whole country, it would have been seen right accross Wales," he said.

"Fireballs Were A Meteor Shower. Gwent police were put on alien alert on Sunday evening when they received reports from all over the country and beyond of fireballs falling from the she sky. Callers from as far apart as Pontypool, Chepstow, Merthyr and Bargoed claimed they had seen alien landings in the Ebbw Vale / Bargoed area. A police spokesman said that officers were despatched to investigate but a search turned up no evidence of alien beings. However, the matter was soon cleared up after a call to the experts at the weather centre. They told police the alien invasion was just a meteor shower."

Margaret Fry investigated this case, along with the Denbighshire Free Press. They confirmed it was not a police helicopter or RAF Valley.

Mr Eifion Rowlands lived at Llwyn, to the north of Llanrhaeadr on the way to Denbigh. He got upto give his dog pain killers as she was suffering from cancer. On the way out of the house he noticed flashing red and blue lights approaching in the sky from the direction of Pen Bryn Llwyn and Ty Coch farm [north-west] and towards his cottage. As it moved he could see it was:

'Like a porta-cabin over 40-50 ft long, with lighted windows. I think it could have been round as the lights were clearly visible as it approached and passed over the cottages. It seemed to be the same height as a helicopter would fly. It carried on and disappeared over the Clwydian Range [to the east]. It was visible for about 20 minutes.'

WELSH FAMILY ENCOUNTERS - A CLOAKED UFO

On Friday, April 24, 1998, M.W. and her two sons were delivering newspapers in their hometown of Port Talbot, West Glamorgan, Wales when they had an unusual encounter. "It was approximately eight o'clock, just before dark and the sky was clear," she reported. "We saw in the sky, not very high, lots of separate spiral shapes moving in a circular motion. It was as if there was a spaceship of some sort that was invisible, and we could only see the movement of some sort of energy underneath it. The spirals were positioned apart in a circular movement, and they all moved across the sky together, staying in a circle." When the family first saw the phenomenon, it was hovering over an abandoned gas works. M.W. pointed out that this is a residential area close to a British Petroleum refinery and a British Steel Works plant. "We watched this (UFO) move for about two minutes" before it flew away over the seaport city. Port Talbot is 45 miles (72 kilometers) westof Cardiff. (Email Interview)

Strange Daze #16 June 1998




SUFON
May
Pont-ar-Llechau, Llangadog

Exact date in May not known - ignore '01' in date panel. Ambrielle Jones and her partner David had just returned home from shopping to find her daughter and her friend sitting in the back garden. Ambrielle went into the house to fetch some drinks and they sat around chatting in the sunshine.

Suddenly a helicopter appeared to rise up above the trees. It was bright yellow - a Sea King Rescue helicopter - David told her later. His memory is slightly different to hers. She remembers it coming towards them and she could see the pilot and co-pilot quite clearly, as they passed overhead. She remembers it being only about two feet [!] above her head, but there was no wind or noise [!]. It was completely silent.

It was only later after her daughter and her friend had gone that Ambrielle and David commented on the 'helicopter' and realised that what they had witnessed was completely impossible. They also differed in their memory of it. David thinking that it was going away from them and she saw it coming towards them. When she mentioned it to her daughter later she had no memory of it at all, which Ambrielle found to be very strange.

Some years later David decided to regress Ambrielle. During the session, Ambrielle said there were Americans in the kitchen. David asked her to describe them and she could see their dark brown uniforms with a crest which was subsequently identified as special forces. Ambrielle could then see them in a field looking at sheep. She did not know at the time that the Americans were in Wales in connection with UFOs or that there were cattle mutilations in this area.

We think that the helicopter seen by the family could very well be a 'screen-memory' projected to make them think what they were seeing was a helicopter. SUFON visited the site in 2018 and were struck by the fact that their garden has many trees and merges into dense woodland over which power lines run. It would be impossible for a helicopter to fly so low over the site.

Clear night with moonlight. A husband and wife watched from indoors, and their daughter watched from outside for about one minute, a huge 'meccano' structure shaped like a disc, with pulsating red, green and white lights, in the south west, about 5-6 miles distant. It was moving very slowly. The daughter was frightened by the experience. It was reported to the RAF.

Cockett, Swansea

A retired Swansea manager is looking for a logical explanation after experiencing a close encounter.

Jeffrey Parsons, aged 68, is baffled after spotting a silent, silvery object with bright flashing lights fly over his home at around 4.30 pm on Monday. At first he thought it must be a helicopter but the flying object was silent and surrounded by bright, glaring white flashing lights.

A call to Cockett police station later revealed it was not a police helicopter. Mr. Parsons, of Aiden Drive, Cockett, said: “I was entertaining business guests when I spotted the object flying from the Fforestfach area towards the north of Kilvey Hill. I am a logical person by nature, but I have never seen anything quite like this.

Retrired Mr. Parsons said he did not tell his guests of the strange experience in case they thought he was mad. “I am sure there must be an explanation for this,” he said. “I would like to know if somebody else saw this strange object” asked Mr. Parsons today.

Ogmore Vale

Clear sky. An object was seen which had no distinctive shape, but had extremely bright red, white and blue flashing lights. The object was extremely noisy and sounded like thunder. It seemed to stop in mid air before shooting off at great speed. The witness initially heard the noise from indoors, as it flew almost overhead, she then ran outside to investigate but the object had disappeared into the distance, approximately two miles down the valley (south). Duration: 5 – 8 minutes. The witness reported it to RAF St. Athan.



June, c. 15:00
Cwmbran

Exact date in June not known. Jonathan O'Shea (10) was with his father in Coed Eva, Cwmbran, and saw a silver-grey, disc-shaped object.

'Moving left, right, forward, backward - but more like disappearing and reappearing from one position to the next. I am not sure of the exact date, my exact age, or the precise duration of the sighting. I am however sure of the location. Me and my father had just come out of a shop across the road from a park in Coed Eva, Cwmbran. The UFO was in the sky and looked to be the same distance as you would expect to see a plane. I/we never reported it. At the time and just after the sighting I was under the impression that my father had witnessed it too but, upon recent querying, it seems he has no recollection of it.

Before the sighting, just after we walked out of the shop, my father said, "look at that hang glider". I looked in the direction my dad was facing and at first couldn't see anything. I then scanned right and up a bit and that's when I saw it. At the time of the sighting we didn't say anything until at one point my father said, "come on let's go." I have no memory of the journey home.

I do remember being back at the house and suddenly realising what I/we had seen. Upon querying my dad about it he seemed to realise it too. However, as I mentioned above, he has no recollection of this. I am no longer as confident about what I saw as it was some years ago because the only other witness, my father, does not remember it and I was quite young. I am sure, however, that it was not a dream! We did go to the shop, I did see something, we did go home and I did mention to my dad what I thought I saw and he did agree. The most amazing part for me was the 'movement' of the craft as I described above.'

Duration of sighting: 10 seconds

Llanidloes

Paul Best and his girlfriend were travelling on the road between Newtown and Llanidloes when they saw a UFO. The RAF said they had no special exercises taking place, and had not received any other reports. Paul told the County Times:

"I saw three triangular shaped planes, which were below the clouds, sometime after half past 10 in the evening. They were perfect triangles, with a round shape underneath. I got out of the car to watch them and for seven or eight minutes they were stationary, they weren't even hovering it was like they were just stuck in the air. Then they started moving very, very slowly, before shooting off very quickly. They weren't flying saucers. I didn't have any sense of them being extra terrestrial or anything like that. I thought they were just really weird looking planes."

A meteor prompted various UFO reports. Sally Pook of the Telegraph reported:

"Police forces in at least eight counties received calls from hundreds of onlookers who saw bright blue lights travelling in a north-easterly direction from Devon to the Midlands. The British Astronomical Association confirmed that the speeding object was a meteor, the result of cosmic debris burning up in the earth's atmosphere. Howard Miles, spokesman, said: "It was quite spectacular, crossing the sky at about midnight and fragmenting as it burnt up in the atmosphere, causing bright sparks. From our reports, it appears to have been a single object, a piece of inter-planetary material called a meteor, which burned up completely before it reached the ground."

It was seen across Shropshire, Worcestershire, Derbyshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Sussex, Hampshire, Gloucestershire and Caernarvon in north Wales. A spokesman for Staffordshire police said: "People told us they had seen a single, blue light that was bigger than a car. Some people described a tail behind the the light, while others said it looked like it was burning or flaming."

June / July, night time
Treharris

Exact date not known - witness thinks could be July.

Gari Jones (aged 15) had just finished school in June, and this has helped him to remember the approximate time of the event. He was in Treharris and saw an egg-shaped object flying overhead.

'I had just recently moved with my parents into their new house. We were outside in the garden and then we looked into the distance as a bright object came into view. It was a very bright white light, but it moved amazingly fast. The neighbour suggested it was a satellite and we all had no reason at the time to disagree. However, having seen many more satellites passing over the skies of my house, they are noticeable for extended periods of time, move slowly across the sky and don't give off much light. The object was far brighter than the actual ISS space station when it can be viewed in full view of the human eye. This was gone in a matter of seconds by moving at tremendous speed. And it never made a sound as it passed over, which is something I find common with UFO type craft.'

Speed: 1500-2000 mph.

Early July - Thursday, 22:30
Cwmafan

On a Thursday night in early July 1998, at about 10.30 PM, in clear, dark conditions, 12-year-old friends, Lin Thomas and Kirsty Harris were walking in Cwmafan, from Heol-Y-Glas Avenue up a path through the 'shrubbery' as it is locally known, before the S bend on Cefn Coed Road. The girls were walking to Kirsty's house in Cefn Coed Road, the intention being that Lin was having a sleep-over there.

Whilst walking through the 'shrubbery' they looked back to see a big bright white light in the sky over Cwmafan, to the north-east of them. They thought at first that it was a star, but it grew larger to become a large sphere about one quarter the size of a full moon, round and bright. It hovered, making no noise.

The object then extended its shape on both sides to become a white cylinder-shaped object, lying horizontally, the same thickness as the sphere it had been.

Then from the left hand side of the object it became shorter to once more become a sphere. Once it had returned to being a sphere, the witnesses noticed randomly flickering, pastel-blue pulses or flashes of light around the outside edge of the object, appearing in no apparent pattern or order. The girls then noticed that the object had started moving towards them on the hillside where they stood in growing fear.

They ran to Kirsty's house in Cefn Coed Road, but there was no one at home, so they ran on to Pine Valley to Lin's house, where they excitedly told Lin's mother and step-father what they had seen. Her mother dismissed it as a police helicopter. Lin angrily responded by rejecting that theory, but the adults refused to believe the girls. Not surprisingly due to their fear of going back out, Kirsty then had a sleep over at Lin's house.

"It was not an aeroplane. I even called my wife and she confirmed it was not an aeroplane. It was strange - I can't get it out of my mind. They were going slowly towards Chester, quite high, but lower than an aeroplane. They were a dullish orange colour. If it was a plane it would have to have been a squadron of them.

An round white object was photographed next to a helicopter passing the pier at Llandudno, watched by a couple and their young son.

7.48 PM. An anonymous witness, a man, was driving through Three Crosses, when he noticed an object in the sky that resembled an airship, although he is certain it was not. He had the impression that the craft was constructed from a silver-grey material. He watched as it flew in perfect silence at an altitude of approximately 4000 feet, on a bearing of 280 degrees.

7.55 PM. A strange light configuration was witnessed by Mr. M. Williams, who observed the phenomena from the opposite side of Swansea Bay: ‘I was travelling as a front seat passenger in a company vehicle driven by my work colleague Mr. P. Passmore,’ he recalled. ‘It was dark but the sky was clear and it was dry. There were stars out and visibility was excellent. The time was approximately 7.55 PM and we were driving from Swansea to Briton Ferry along the Jersey Marine dual carriageway. As we drove I said to my colleague, “there’s a strange sight, the top one’s a star but the other two (underneath) aren’t.” Although driving, my colleague agreed with me, as the lights were almost straight ahead, just to our right. The lights were formed in a triangle, with the star at the top and the two lights at the bottom. As we continued to observe them, the light on the bottom right moved toward the other light below. Then both, slightly apart, moved quickly off toward the sea. By now our vehicle was level with them and when I looked back they had gone, but the star was still there.’

As the anomalous objects traversed the Mumbles headland, travelling parallel to each other in a south-westerly direction, they became visible to most of the south coast of Gower. Shortly before 8 PM, the object was seen by a coastguard officer: ‘a star in the sky with two lights under it, white and orange over Bracelet Bay, half a mile off the shore. I put it down as some form of aircraft, but they were not flashing like an aircraft. It was silent. It did appear strange.’ [Swansea Coastguard nearly admitting to seeing a UFO! – E.W. - SUFON]

Philip Chatfield, a practising sculptor and former Royal Marine was out walking on the cliff at that moment. At approximately 8 PM, he noticed two parallel lights in the sky. Upon further inspection, he realised that these were attached to two, independent, slim-lined craft that were horizontal in shape. Both appeared to be constructed from dark grey metal, and were approximately eight miles distant from the shore. As there was hardly any wind, Mr. Chatfield was adamant that had these ‘extremely agile’ objects emitted any sound, he would most certainly have heard it. But he heard nothing.

Neil Spring with friend and amateur astronomer, Heidi Cook had gone outside in Bishopston to observe a predicted meteor shower. They chose to observe the display from Bishopston Comprehensive School playing fields, away from the glare of street lights. They heard the distant sound of a helicopter in the area. At approximately 7.55 PM, something in the sky caught their attention. An object was heading their way, and Neil ruled out a meteor or bright star. In the eastern hemisphere they saw a gleaming red light. At a higher angle to this was another similarly coloured light. They watched both lights with interest, and given they were too large and the wrong colour to be stars, they wondered what they could be. They then realised that they were in fact attached to two fast moving elongated objects, flying at the same approximate altitude as light aircraft. Also fast approaching, though not yet within visual range, were what they took to be helicopters, whose sound from their rotor blades had grown noticeably louder. The two unknown objects skimmed smoothly through the sky, maintaining a steady course and short distance from one another.

Their lights were steady and undulating, distinctively different from those of conventional aircraft. And behind these, they discerned the clear, dark outlines of solid objects. Neil explained that interestingly, for a moment, the craft came so close that they appeared to merge into a single, pencil-shaped entity, much like that described by Mr. M. J. Smedly.

They had already determined that there were in fact two objects: thus they concluded that the impression that there might be one was an illusion, caused by the changing angle of observation.

Suddenly, the sound of whirling rotor blades, filled the night air as three low-flying helicopters loomed into view. As they approached the field, two of them began to circle the area, while the third took off after the objects. The UFOs responded with an exponential increase in speed, and, as the chasing helicopter drew nearer, they climbed together into the sky. The lone chopper seemed undeterred and maintained its heading for the craft.

Glancing behind, Neil noticed that the two remaining helicopters had changed course in the direction of Swansea Airport, some two miles away.

Meanwhile, the UFOs were definable now only as small, diminishing points of light at great altitude. The distance they had covered from the time they first saw them was considerable. As if recognising the pointlessness of pursuing these objects, the lone helicopter disengaged and followed the others in the direction of the airport. Momentarily obscured by a tree, the points of light re-emerged into view and then, within an instant, vanished from view.

9:45 AM. Justin Fifield of Swansea was driving on the outskirts of Swansea when he saw a strange object. He stopped the car and got out for a better look. Hovering high above the clouds he could see an elongated shining yellow object ‘like a matchstick’ and completely silent. He was certain that it was not a plane nor a balloon, but a solid, structured flying machine under intelligent control. He watched it for a few minutes more before it disappeared behind a cloud. He then got back in his car and continued his journey.

Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan

Allyson O'Connell (44) was driving home from work at a nearby riding stables, with her 14-year-old daughter. She was driving on the Cowbridge By-pass (A48) towards Bridgend (west). They spotted an object in the sky a short distance away and were both baffled as to what it could have been. She slowed the car to get a better look. It was on the left of the car (to the south) over what she thought was a school [the only place on the south side of the bypass which resembles a school is Cowbridge Leisure Centre and athletic club].

It was described as an object like a large balloon or amoeba shape, about the size of two planes. It was 'sort of moving wobbly.' It had lights around the edge. It was hovering, but constantly changing shape slowly, 'like a jellyfish'.

'We were both fascinated but scared. I just knew I had to drive fast and get the hell out of there. I could still see it in the rear-view mirror and my daughter was turned around watching it. It was still in the same place when we last saw it. Nobody believed us and I didn't think to report it to any official. We still talk to each other about what we saw and we are both convinced it was a UFO. By the way we checked to see if there had been anything happening in Cowbridge that evening like a laser show or something. There was nothing going on. I can't be more specific about the month etc but guess it was autumn as it was twilight.'

Duration of sighting: 4 minutes.

"When I was a teenager, I was walking my girlfriend home. There was light cloud cover, very few cars on the road, and good weather. Half way up the hill where my then girlfriend lives, I could hear a low pitched humming sound coming from over my head. When I looked up, I saw through the light cloud cover, a rugby ball-shaped yellowish light, with a lot of dim white round lights circling around it at speed. It was moving very slowly overhead. I can remember feeling tingles all over my body and so did my girlfriend.

It kept moving slowly until the lights going round it went out and all was left was the rugby ball shape in the middle. The humming sound stopped and it just disappeared. I can’t really say how high it was, but my observations at the time then, and looking back at it now, I would estimate this thing was at least 3 football pitches in size.

The next day there were people saying that all the electrics and computers went down at the same time in a few local factories, and I remember correctly it was also on the local news the next day, and the explanation that was given is that, on the night in question there was a fun fair about 20 or so miles away, and the lights that were seen in the sky was the lights from that fair.

I live in a valley, and between where I was and where the fun fair was, I’d say it was impossible for the lights to reflect off the clouds like they said. The dates I have given [10 October] is not accurate as it was quite some time ago, the only thing I am certain of is the year and the time, this is because my girlfriend at the time had to be in at 22:30."

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
