Sighting Details

On the evening of 20th January 2014 George was out walking in a rural area close to Church Village, several miles South of Pontypridd. It was a clear but cold evening, and the sun had already set. George was walking alongside a rural area of land, with a patch of woodland about 700 m away. He suddenly noticed a glowing object rising towards the trees. At first he assumed it was a Chinese lantern, as it was glowing an orange-yellow colour. However it appeared to be moving too fast. He then saw it was a boomerang-shaped object which seemed to be completely glowing along its length, except for the end points. There were no markings visible on the object. It was hard to judge its size but it did not look small. It appeared to be completely silent, George felt that he was close enough to hear sound if it was making any.

The UFO continued to ascend until it was over the trees, then began flying back and forth, East to West over several hundred metres, almost like it was looking for something. Each time it turned it appeared to stop for a brief moment. George noticed two other elderly people outside their house which overlooked the area. He called them over to also take a look at the object.

After the UFO performed the same manoeuvre a few times, the object began to descend at 60 degrees and was lost from sight behind the trees. The whole sighting had lasted for between 2-3 minutes.
