Two Bright Lights-Bridgend, Wales-1st October 2017

Location of Sighting: Bridgend, Wales
Date of Sighting: 1st October 2017
Time: 7.45pm
Witness Name: Dee
Witness Statement: Look out the window to see this two bright lights in the Sky. The only way I could describe these are like landing lights on a plane. Myself and my son watched these for briefly 1 minute before they disappeared behind the clouds. At first I thought maybe it was the moon behind the clouds until the moon showed itself above to the left quite a way up. These lights looked as though a plane was about the land straight on over my house but this was silent, the lights did not move they were completely stationary. I live next to a motorway so anyone going eastbound would’ve seen these too. Me and my son are gobsmacked after just witnessing this, I’m glad he seen it too or else I would’ve question myself. I hope some else comes forward to report this also as it was unmissable to the naked eye (massive)

I also checked Flightradar24 and there were no aeroplanes in the vicinity.

  1. A couple of things stand out here: I’m interested that you describe the lights as akin to aircraft landing lights, and stationary. Could it have been a helicopter with spotlights on for some reason? Before I get shot down for offering this as a possible explanation, I have witnessed a Sea King in the distance with a searchlight on, and it fits the description. The fact it was silent could be because it was actually further away than you thought; in the case of mine, I believed it to be nearer than it was. As for FlightRadar24, the fact your aircraft didn’t show up also points towards a helicopter. FlightRadar24 – like many such resources (and great fun they are) can only display aircraft that are squawking using certain types of transponders, the usual one being ADS-B. ADS-B is not yet a legal requirement and is therefore only fitted to some aircraft; police, news and even search and rescue helicopters often do not use ADS-B transponders, so would not have shown up. ADS-B becomes legally required in 2020. Of course, to satisfy those who consider me – and others who offer such explanations – to be buffoons, I could be wrong.

  2. Hi Steve,

    With reference your comment:’I have witnessed a Sea King in the distance with a searchlight on, and it fits the description’.

    As Dee never mentioned the width of these two ‘bright lights’ that hung silent & immobile in the sky, I have to disagree with your explanation that this was a Sea King or any other Helicopter.

    If someone observes a silver ball in the sky, it’s fair to say
    it could be massive, but a long way of, or very close by, because
    we have no way of determining the size of the silver ball, hence, there is no perspective!.

    When one observes an aircraft/helicopter in the sky we have a very good idea of the object’s size, and we are all aware of a
    helicopter way, way, before you see it, so am at a loss as to
    the reasoning for inferring that Dee was observing a Sea King
    & that no rotor noise was heard because,: ‘it was silent could be because it was actually further away than you thought’.

    In the case of your Sea King sighting, that you ‘believed was nearer to you than it was’, and you was obviously aware that you was observing a Sea King. How did you find out it wasn’t as close
    to you than you believed, because your perspective must have remained the same throughout!!.

  3. I wasn’t aware I was watching a Sea King until it became close enough to be recognised. Until then, i was watching and odd light in the sky. As is often the case, you’re quick to dismiss a possible explanation (and I’m sure you agree that looking for the Earthly in order to dismiss them is the first step) but never offer your own take. If this wasn’t an aircraft of some sort from planet earth please enlighten me: what was it, and why? I’ve taken the time to explain its appearance looking like something I’ve seen; I’ve even explained clearly why it may not show up on net radar apps. Let’s have a suggestion from you? What was it?

  4. Just a point but, in the dark, a long way off, how would we ‘all’ be aware lights in the sky are a helicopter, when all you would see Are – as in the instance I described- bright lights? Contrary to what you are saying the sound of a helicopter- or even a jet – is not audible to us no matter the distance. It has to be close enough to hear. Out of interest, how much experience, Chris, do you have of watching aircraft – especially at night?

  5. Apologies for the multiple replies, but Chris has piqued my interest here with comments about being aware of a helicopter long before you see it, and i have an example from the other day that might shed some light on my problem with this: I was standing with an estimated couple of hundred people waiting for the Typhoon display at Coningsby just last week, when – at the far end of the runway – it’s 9000ft long, for reference – a small dot appeared that appeared to be just above the tree level. Now, those with binoculars could tell me straight away it was a Puma (not the cat, the helicopter) on approach yet to those of us watching with the naked eye, it was a dot, in the sky; not recognisable as a helicopter at all and – at around 9000ft away – seemingly making no sound. It only became a ‘helicopter’ to us when it emerged from behind the tower and other buildings, having been hidden as it reached near-ground level, and we could make out the shape – and then the noise. How many sighting of unidentified shapes in the sky could this sort of thing account for – broad daylight, remember, and no sound until – I would estimate – about 2000ft? I would suggest quite a few.

  6. Given Bridgend’s proximity to Cardiff airport, it is highly likely to be an aircraft of terrestrial origin, or else a strictly non-stealthy alien craft from the planet Zarg, with hopefully, a friendly advance invasion party on board. They really must keep their cloaking device on and not shine a huge light over a built-up area to pre-warn the populace.

  7. Dee don`t despair mate here is some support for you despite all the terrestial arguments which by now you must feel like you are wearing concrete wellies, there are bright lights in our midst which can hover – silently and seemingly under control. I have seen them. Lots of them.

  8. Alan, you’re right; helicopters can hover, so can drones. Please tell me you don’t think that bright lights in the sky are more likely to be alien than terrestrial?

  9. I won`t then Steve so long as terrestrial lights can disappear into nothingness.

  10. Alan, they can. Flick the switch on your bedside light and see what happens.

  11. Hi Steve,

    In your Typhoon/Puma scenario everything becomes clear within a very short space of time. Namely that you are observing something you expect to see namely the Typhoon/Puma.

    In Dee’s case he observed two bright lights that were ‘stationery’ and ‘silent’, he wasn’t able to see any superstructure behind the lights and also said that they were ‘unmissable, massive’ & ‘these lights looked as though a plane was about the land straight on over my house’.

    The case you put forward as an explanation for what Dee observed
    is, with respect, worlds apart from the actual sighting.

    ‘As is often the case, you’re quick to dismiss a possible explanation (and I’m sure you agree that looking for the Earthly in order to dismiss them is the first step) but never offer your own take. If this wasn’t an aircraft of some sort from planet earth please enlighten me: what was it, and why?’.

    If it’s OK with you Steve I don’t see the point in speculating
    as to what Dee might have observed mainly because I wasn’t present, all I will say is it sounds highly strange!.

  12. “all I will say is it sounds highly strange!”

    But does it? Lights in the sky, akin to airport landing lights (as described) are a very common occurrence. I’m disappointed you won’t offer a possible explanation, when I’m willing to. It’s a bit of a trademark of your responses, isn’t it? Pleased to see this place alive again, btw.

  13. You of all people Steve are probably the best person to ask what an aircraft should be wearing at night. Red-port, green starboard, white up front and a strobe somewhere?
    So its OK to just `switch them off’ mid flight is it. Lets get real. This is strange and highly irregular, and you know it.
    I have seen a large yellow/white ball of light hovering,
    change ( at the approach of a passing chopper ) to these colours but get them all wrong i.e. strobing red etc. Seems that highly intelligent ET`s may be colour blind.

  14. Alan, I am ‘getting real’; you wondered how ‘terrestrial lights can disappear into nothingness’; i simply pointed out that they can, and with absolute simplicity. Nowhere did I say it was ‘OK’ for aircraft to switch them off, and I still don’t see why being able to see a light in the sky one moment and then the next is ‘highly irregular’. There could be many reasons: it could be obscured, it could change direction – yes, it could switch off!! Your large ball of hovering light is an interesting one. It also begs an interesting question: if ET (as you suppose it was) can change to our light layout (and get it wrong – that’s a nice bit of fun that I don’t think Spielberg considered) so easily, presumably for cover, why appear as a large hovering yellow ball at all?
