Witness Statement
I was putting the bins out when I noticed a single small dim orange light traversing the night sky. I initially assumed it was a satellite, then I noticed another similar light following it…followed by another…then another…then another! In the approx. 5 – 10 minutes that I noticed and observed them, there must have been in the region of 20 – 30 lights passing over, all travelling roughly, in my estimation, from NW to SW (I couldn’t see exactly where they were going as a bank of cloud had rolled in and obscured my vision). What struck me was how constant and uniform these lights were – they appeared to be travelling at the same speed, the same altitude, in exactly the same direction and all appearing to have the same distance between them. I can’t say with any certainty as to the altitude of these objects, save to say that my impression was that they were high up. I couldn’t determine their exact speed other than they didn’t appear to move very fast – these lights were visible for about 10 – 15 seconds from their first appearance to disappearing behind the cloud cover. They were observed at an azimuth of about 40 – 50 degrees. I couldn’t make out any noticeable sound. Of course, one possibility is that they were Chinese lanterns, but having observed these in previous years their flight patterns appeared to be much less uniform (some flying higher than others), whilst it could’ve been satellites although the ones I’ve seen have always appeared individually rather than in a group. My towards space debris e.g. booster rocket breaking up after re-entering the atmosphere. It would be interesting to know if anyone else saw anything, or might be able to provide a rational explanation.

Snowdonia National Park-23rd November 2012

Location of Sighting: Snowdonia National Park
Date of Sighting: 23/11/2012
Time: 18.30
Witness Name: Martin Hughes

Witness Statement: We were travelling home,in the dark, I was sitting in the passenger seat of our works van after being on a flood clearance job in north Wales. We were heading south from Bettws Y Coed and entering Snowdonia Natinal Park on the A470 at around 18.30 on a clear moonlit evening when we stopped at a set of traffic lights on red which were part of ongoing road improvements. I saw a set of white triangular lights to the east which was to our left. These lights seemed to be up on an embankment between us and the silhouette of a higher hill in the distance, I first assumed it was a train as it was travelling horizontally as if on a straight track but it then rose at an angle of about 25 degrees and started to angle towards the west behind our position in the van. I then lost sight of the lights as we were facing south and they disappeared behind our van.
I thought to myself it must’ve been a train as it could not have been an air plane (even if it was taking off) – as I know of no airports/fields in that area – the closest being in Welshpool way over to the east 55 miles away. However if it was a train and it had headed west behind our position I thought to myself how would it have crossed the road behind us as we hadn’t gone under any bridges or gone over any railway crossing on our journey. As I scratched my head in confusion the red light turned to green and we continued south through the Park.
My co-driver didn’t see what I had and I didn’t mention it to him as I was still perplexed by what I’d seen. We had travelled for another 5 minutes and were in a flow of traffic travelling at about 45 mph when my co-driver said ” what the f##k is that?” at which point 2 bright lights came into view from a north easterly direction and flew over the road in front of us at an approximate height of 200 feet (maybe less) and at a distance away of about 300 feet. Even though it was dark it was a clear enough night to see these lights were part of the same craft as I could see the silhouette of its body which was an elongated rectangle with the lights at either end. After it flew across the road in a south easterly direction it then did a sort of banking manoeuvre towards the south west. The whole craft then seemed to glide at great speed to the west and disappeared behind a set of hills. The distance between our viewpoint and these hills was about a mile and this object travelled it in seconds. The time these lights came into view and going out of sight probably took less than 7 seconds. I would assume any aircraft travelling that low and accelerating at that speed would have generated a fair amount of noise. The other strange point was that at no time did we see any navigation lights which are common on most aircraft and also there was no after burn or thrust illumination from any part of the craft which would be visible if a jet engine had performed this type of manoeuvre at that sort of speed.
Both myself and co-driver could not come up with any rational explanation to what we had just seen and both agreed after a lengthy discussion on the remainder of our journey home that what we had seen was an object which was flying and was unidentifiable

Snowdonia, North Wales-29th August 2012

Location of Sighting: Snowdonia, North Wales
Date of Sighting: 29/08/12
Time: 23:24
Witness Name: Reuben

Witness Statement: I was standing at the backdoor of my house looking over the mountains, so looking to the SW, when a light traveling at some speed passed over the horizon heading N to NW, the light was traveling at a continuous speed which never changed from first sight until gone. It was faster and lower than the usual jet planes that pass over the mountains on their way to the near by RAF base’s, there was no sound from this at all. The light was yellow and once or twice left a quick fading after trail as if it was a rocket propelled. The odd thing about it was it travelled exactly parallel to the horizon without a fade or bow in angle at all before simply disappearing, this was no fire work or flare as it travelled much more of a distance than you would expect and in a bolt strait line for about 80% of a fixed view on the horizon. Freaky i now feel like a geek trying to explain the unknown…..Any clues anybody?

Caernarfon, Gwynedd-7th August 2012

Location of Sighting: Caernarfon, Gwynedd
Date of Sighting: 07/08/2012
Time: 10:30pm
Witness Name: Paul Clements

Witness Statement: I have just been outside to my back garden and glanced at the night sky. I noticed a very bright orange circle quite high. Having had chinese lanterns in the past, I knew it wasn’t that but it looked quite stationary for a while. After getting a reference from the side of the house I was able to tell that it was moving albeit quite slow. It was moving in a westerly direction and was gradually speeding up getting faint as it was passing behind cloud and bright again as it re-appeared. I followed it as much as I could until my house was blocking my view. I then went to the front of the house where I lost site of it completely plus there was more light pollution from street lamps. Very interesting, I must remember to look again tomorrow night.
