Brecon Beacons-3rd January 2012

Location of Sighting: Brecon Beacons
Date of Sighting: Tue 3 January 2012
Time: 1700 hrs
Witness Name: Jessica

Witness Statement: Whilst driving home from work in Brecon on Tue 3 Jan 2012 i saw a very bright big white light that looked like a star above Pen y Fan mountain. I just thought it was a very bright star alone in the dark sky until it started moving . It seemed as if other drivers were also looking at the strange light aslo as cars were swerving and slowing down as if looking at something. It moved towards the Hirwaun side of the Beacons where i lost site of it. This is the second strange white light i have seen in trhe space of 3 weeks over the Brecon / Merthyr Tydfil area. Did anyone else see what i saw?
I also saw a helicopter moving towards the light before i lost sight of it. This was not a star. As far as i am aware stars do not move!!! And i have seen a shooting star twice and it was not a very fast moving light. Very very bright white!

Llandrindod Wells, Powys, Wales-5th November 2011

Location of Sighting: Llandrindod Wells, Powys, Wales
Date of Sighting: 5th November 2011
Time: 1730-1735
Witness Name: Robert Christie

Witness Statement: My companion and I were standing approximately half way up the golf course hill road above Llandrindod Wells, watching a few early fireworks. The sun had set and there was a clear moon casting strong shadows, with clear sky above us and some cloud in west and east. There was very little wind at ground level but the clouds were moving from east to west. The town and all fireworks were below us.
The first object flew silently from the north, possibly very slightly west of north, and passed in a straight line high above us and almost directly over our heads. It was a bright glowing and slightly flickering orange/yellow, with no obvious shape. It passed to a point about 40 degrees from vertical away from us and then the light faded rapidly and disappeared. Almost at once another identical light appeared in the same place as the first had, I would say approximately 50 degrees above the northern horizon, and repeated this trajectory and behaviour, followed almost immediately by a third.
My first thought was that these were jet aircraft, possibly military, catching the light of the set sun and passing out of it as they descended. There was a very slight, distant noise as of jet engines just after the third passed. My companion thought that the light was on the right side of the objects, which would fit the “alpine sunset” explanation, although I could not see this.
However, within a minute or so we saw the distinct pattern of the lights of a jet airliner passing directly above us from east to west and apparently not catching the light of the sun — certainly with no bright light of the kind just described. It is possible that this was the source of the jet engine noise, which we had not heard before. At this point it became clear that the three lights had to be higher than the airliner, if they had caught the sunlight so clearly and it had not; but if that was so, the relative speed of the three objects would have been significantly higher than that of the airliner — I would say many times higher.
At that point we considered the possibility of the light being caused by re-entry heat, as from a failed satellite; but this does not fit the regularity of interval between the three objects.
I attempted to photograph the last two of the objects with a Canon Powershot but my hand was unsteady and all I have is a couple of photographs showing curling criss-cross lines of light. All these convey is the brightness, the colour, and the time.
I am intrigued by the sheer number of similar reports from all over the UK that night. It was of course Guy Fawkes night, but these were not fireworks.
I am a practising solicitor with some long-past military training. My companion has a first-class university degree.

Llandovery-First sighting1987 & Second sighting Christmas week 1992

Location of Sighting: Llandovery
Date of Sighting: First sighting1987. Second sighting Christmas week 1992?
Time: 02:00hrs
Witness Name: K Owen

Witness Statement: Undoubtedly there are UFO’s! I have seen numerous over the years and I have a very discerning eye when it comes to belief of such phenomenon.

Awaiting a car rally at 2am on a Sunday morning – clear sky (Heading ENE) Silohette of a hilly landscape in the background which assisted with assessing height and distance from the ground.
As an avid novice astronomer, I am aware of basic star formations and why night lights flicker due to the atmosphere of our planet.
As part of a large spectator crowd I became aware of four stars in a line – same trajectory, spacing and not flikering – which were not known to me! Strangely, the sound of the crowd ceased! I watched in awe as the star to the right of this congregation moved slowly and directly across the line of the other three stars – along the trajectory. It relocated itself exactly the same spacing away to the other three stars and placed itself to the far left. The star next to to this light began a movement at the same pace in the opposite direction, again taking its final positioning as the first. Gradually all four stars (lights) began to move to and fro, being joined by more lights! The pace of movement increased rapidly until each individual light sped off at terrific speed in every direction not to be seen again! With that, the first rally car arrived breaking the scilence. Everyone in the crowd witnessed this occurance!

Second sighting: While taking my Alsatian dog for a walk during the Christmas tide, I took a fimiliar route through the local town car park. Above the local Castle Hotel was a triangular shaped craft with feint distant amber lights motionless in the clouds ( cloudy but dry conditions). This craft hung there for minutes before one wing folded on top of the other and with no sound disapeared in to the clouds! This sound very much like those described in recent sightings world wide!

I can only describe what I have seen and these occurances may very well be from Earth. If so, who is propelling them!

Trecastle, Brecon Beacons, Usk reservoir-2nd July 2011

Location of Sighting: Trecastle, Brecon Beacons. (Usk reservoir)
Date of Sighting: 02/07/11
Time: 02:45am
Witness Name: Paul Rogers & Jade Mayor

Witness Statement: on friday the 1st of july me and my partner decided to go on a bit of a camping/fishing trip to the Usk Res, Trecastle. At around 2:45am me and my partner were sitting next to our small campfire chatting/watching the rod tips when a reflection in the water took my attention, i looked up to my left and there was an outline of a saucer with several bright individual lights in a latral line, it was hovering and moving left to right, and it was acending and decending randomly quite high above the dam of the res,when it stayed still two stems of yellow light perdruded from the top of the craft and at the same time diffrent parts of the valley around it were being lit up by a strobe effect white flash it was a very clear sky with no cloud so it couldnt be lightning. The “ufo” then faded away and re appeard much closer around the centre of the res within a few seconds and continued to manouver about silently. The movements were very sudden and almost too fast for my eyes to follow it would then stop instantly, the whole time i was asking for reassurance off my partner and asked her to commentate each direction it was moving. This continued for a what seemed a very long 15-20mins before it faded away for good. I am (was) a bigtime sceptic and so is my partner. This was a very detailed sighting, it went on for a long time and was blatently an advanced air craft. Any info out of curiousity??
