Tredegar-South Wales-23rd May 2009

Location of Sighting: Tredegar – South Wales
Date of Sighting: 23rd May 2009
Time: Around 22:24
Witness Name: Jordan Fox

Witness Statement: I live in Tredegar South Wales and last night 23/05/09 me and my friends saw a very strange “burning orange” object in the sky moving very fast, i took a photo of this.

The object looked exactly like a shuttle but seemed to be way too low. It was moving very fast and we observed it moving from the North/North East to South/South West. As it just moved DIRECTLY over us we could clearly see 3 cones of “flame” coming from the back of this object, withing these cones we could also see smaller white cones, once agen exactly like the colours and shapes that come out of space shuttles as they are taking off.

There were 9 whitnesses to this. The object was bight burning orange with slighty darker “flames” extruding from the rear. There was no sound and no flashing light as an aircraft but much lower than any commercial airline but very very large.

We observed it for about 2/3 minutes possibly more. Observed around 22:24Pm. At this moment it was around 1/3rd of its way through the time we observed it.

please if any1 has seen this around the Wales area leave a message. 

 i did not think to take a video of it as i was truely amaized and basically gob smacked and only managed a photograph using my mobile phone camers (3.2megapixels).

Here is the photo sent in by Jordon with cropped enlargement:

    Hello, on Thursday 17th June 2010 at 22,45pm me and my girlfriend were by Tredegar police station in my astra vxr when we both saw this strange orange glowing light(!!!UFO!!!) towards the north of the town(Trefil area), there was no flashing lights coming from this object, we were in awe with the sight of this object, it was only in the sky for about a minute moving very slowly with no noise before moving west and then just disappearing, then we when up to the mountain by cefn golau pond to see if there was anymore but there wasn’t nothing else to be seen, then last night Saturday 19th June 2010 at around 22,15pm – 22,30pm we were in a back lane at park view Tredegar and we saw the same orange glowing (!!!UFO!!!) object again, this time my 10 year old daughter was with us and she also saw this object, we all briefly saw this object again moving very slowly towards the south west(Rhymney) before it disappeared again, also last year down in Tenby (August 2009) me my girlfriend and my 2 daughters saw 3 orange objects (!!!UFO!!!) all moving at the same identical speed and direction with no movement from each other at around 22,45pm these objects were moving from west to east with no sound or flashing lights, i think what we saw are UFO’s!!!!!!!!!!! strange strange things are going on these days, all I’m saying to everybody is to keep a look out in the sky from 9pm onwards because you will see these strange objects in the sky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trust no one and only believe what your own eyes see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
