Location of Sighting: Newport, South Wales
Date of Sighting: 13/06/2009
Witness Name: Grant
Witness Statement: While at a BBQ a friend asks what the rest of the group think a bright orange light that is moving in the sky is. We discussed that it was not a plane/helicopter, nor a satellite as it was moving extremely fast but appeared to be as high as the jumbo jets. Then it stopped glowing but carried on its path, it was hard to make out but it looked round and grey. Being so high up it was impossible to be sure of what we could see and nobody was that excited until another object appeared in view. This second object stunned the 10 or so people already starring into the night sky. It appeared MUCH closer to the Earth and sped along the sky much quicker than the first as you would expect off something much lower down. This object was silent, grey and PERFECTLY CIRCULAR. One friend described it as like a “grey poker chip” speeding across the sky. If I had not seen this first hand but on a video, I would say it was a UFO hoax because of how stereotypical it was of your “flying saucer”. It passed almost directly over head and we had about 1 minute to study it before it disappeared out of view. Very strange.
