UFOINFO Online Sighting Report
Location: Church Village Pontypridd R.C.Taff
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Boomerang or v shaped
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: No
Weather Conditions: Clear night
Description: Boomerang or v shaped. Constant orange or yellow uniform glow along length of shape. Thought it was chinese lantern at first but moving to quickly and flying back and forth over woodland area before descending down at app 60 degree angle. Definitely not a bird as the shape was rigid and luminous.
UFOINFO comment: I asked the witness if there was any possibility that it could have been a remote control craft with led lights and if he was close enough to be able to detect any sound if it was one? I received the following reply:
Hi John, no, I thought of that possibility. This was a continuous glow. It was dark 7pm at night. And yesterday 02/02/2014 I went to the area in question and it is all woodland. Extremely unlikely.
It rose towards the trees and I thought it was a lantern but speed was to quick. Then travelled a few hundred metres turned back and forth like a bird over a few hundred metres several times but the shape was rigid. It had a continuous glow along its length. Called 2 mature adults to look at it. Where the area was you would have to walk a fair distance in the dark to get to area to fly a model plane, which you would risk damaging. Kind regards.
P.S. When I got spare time we are going to have a good look at area.
