Description: Two other witnesses and i saw a circular bright orange light slowly moving over Pontnewydd coming from the direction of Pontypool heading towards the centre of Cwmbran. There was no flashing lights or sound. The light was very high up and bright. There was no change in shape, brightness or colour. There was no flickering to suggest maybe a chinese lantern. It was on a straight path.

It resembled a flare or Rocket firework but it did not fade or explode.

It was not a plane or helicopter.

[UFOINFO Note: This second report was sent a few minutes after the report above and I believe it was sent from the same computer - hopefully a second witness and not a hoax. See below for additional information since I first posted this comment.]

Additional information:


On the 5th November 2008 I posted information on your website in regards to a sighting of a UFO over Pontnewydd, Cwmbran, Wales.

I have noticed that on the website you have said that there is two reports moments apart from the same computer.

You suggested that it may have been a hoax.

I am emailing you to let you know that it was not a hoax, it was from the same computer it was two separate reports from the same sighting. The reports are by My father - in - Law and myself.

We posted two reports because I wanted my father in law to post his report without seeing mine so I could compare the sightings so my father in law would not be swayed by what I said I seen.

I hope this may clear up some confusion.

Thank you for your time.
