Off A470 in Merthyr-19th September 2013

Location of Sighting: Off A470 in Merthyr
Date of Sighting: 19/09/13
Time: 21:30
Witness Name: Anon

Witness Statement: We were driving past the A470. A bright White light seemed to be falling and fell behind the tree line into the valley. It fell about the speed of a flare but it was a clear night and there was absolutely no smoke coming from it. Thought maybe a parachute light or maybe a flare but can’t find any without smoke. Also strange that it was above and near to houses. Also saw helicopter like lights nearby later on and someone else we told also saw something similar several miles away but saw a chinook. I know they do lots of military training nearby in the Brecon Beacons but it seemed to close to a residential area and there was absolutely no visible smoke.

  1. Hi Anon,
    Good report, but, as you suggested, any stray flares would produce smoke of some kind. I would have thought that any exercises would be kept very well away from any residential areas. Very possibly a meteorite falling to ground – it would be interesting to see if you can find anyone else that witnessed this and whether you could line up your individual sightings to see if you could locate where this actually came down. -Paul

  2. White flares from aircraft mean distress, near a airfield I must land asap.

  3. Flares seems to sum it up, particularly when the area is part of an LFA. Pretty much IFO in this instance.
