Location of Sighting: Porth, Rhondda
Date of Sighting: 1987/88
Time: 1800-1900 hrs
Witness Name: Paul Clissold
Witness Statement: I remember one night sitting on the Hill outside the Porth Cadets looking down into Porth waiting for the other lads to come, when I looked to my right towards Cymer. I looked into the sky and noticed a HUGE and I mean HUGE white sphere in the sky. There were no other lights and the white light stayed continuous and the damm thing wasn’t moving. Suddenly it shot across the sky to my left at a speed I have never seen before or since, without a sound and hovered above the mountain that sepperates the two Rhondda valleys. It stayed there for a few more seconds and then shot off at the same speed as before and was gone. Just after it was gone my mates came up the hill and hadn’t seen a thing.
