In November 2010 Helen and her boyfriend Chris experienced a sighting of a large glowing spherical UFO near to the village of Corris in Wales. She originally informed PRUFOS about the incident, but in early 2011 decided to post the sighting on Richard Hall’s website, which is how she initially got in touch with me.


Sighting Details


Mid-evening on 6th November 2010, Helen and Chris were driving from their house at Corris Uchaf along the A487 to the nearby town of Machynlleth to go food shopping. It was around 7.30pm, and an overcast, wet and windy evening. It was already dark due to the time of year but the sky was covered in cloud so the stars were not visible.

As they turned a corner in the road Helen noticed a large circle of light in the sky in front of them. She was chatting with Chris so at first did not really engage with what she was seeing. As the colour of the light was neon orange she assumed at first that it was a street light positioned up high somewhere she had never noticed before. As she looked at the light it slowly dawned on her that there could not be a street light in that position. They came to a clear stretch of road and at this point it became obvious that the light was coming from a huge orange glowing sphere that was suspended high up in the air. Helen had now been watching it for at least a minute, and it hadn't moved at all during this time.
