'UFOs Are Seen As A Joke But It's Almost An Absolute Certainty
They Exist'

by Laura Wright
South Wales Echo

If reports of UFO sightings are to be believed, we are not
alone. Echo reporter LAURA WRIGHT delves into South Wales' very
own X Files...

SIGHTINGS of unidentified flying objects have soared in the last
month, with at least two a week seen by airline pilots in South

Dancing lights, large craft and mysterious flashes are among
dozens of UFOs sighted above Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys
in the last few years.

And only four days ago, on the night of Christmas Day, a couple
saw spherical orange lights in the sky above their home in the

According to figures released under the Freedom of Information
Act, the Ministry of Defence has looked into 13 reports of UFOs
in South Wales in the past three years. Several other sightings
have been posted on UFO websites but it is thought that many
more go unreported.

David Coggins has been a UFO investigator for 30 years and says
there has been a spate of sightings in recent months.

He said: "There have been lots of reports by airline pilots
flying in and out of South Wales who are seeing a lot of
unidentified craft on a frequent basis, one or two a week.

"Generally speaking, they are large triangular shaped objects.
It's not just during the night but in daylight as well.

"I've come across people who have seen UFOs very close up, from
a distance of 12 feet."

Just three weeks ago, Martin Dupres and two friends had a close
encounter when they saw a strange light in the sky in Lisvane at
5pm on Tuesday, December 11.

Martin, 43, of Riverside, Cardiff, said: "I saw an extremely
bright light come straight across the sky. Then it faded out but
it might have sped up.

"It wasn't a satellite or an aeroplane. This thing was not like
that. The light shone towards my eyes then carried on. I'm
curious, I've never seen anything like it before."

There was another sighting of a UFO at 4am on September 9 in St
Mellons, Cardiff. The witness saw an incredibly bright star but
it suddenly started moving up and down and side to side swiftly
and then flashing lights appeared around it like cameras.

One account comes from a Cardiff man left shaken after he saw
three lights dancing around each other before flying away in
April 2006.

He said: "I saw something that I never believed I would. I saw
what at first I thought was a plane, until it changed direction
at such an acute angle. At this point it was by two more lights
=96 they were very blurry, orange in colour. They danced around
each other and then moved off.

"I don't make silly claims. Quite frankly this has shaken me

UFO investigator Mr Coggins, 67, of Pontypridd, hypnotises
people who have seen UFOs and then experienced periods of
missing time.

Mr Coggins, who is featured in the alien encounter book Does It
Rain In Other Dimensions, said: "Strange as it may seem, people
who had seen a UFO close up have ended up on the crafts and
while they've been on, strange things happen to them such as
medical examinations.

"They don't remember until they are hypnotised. One man in South
Wales had lost one-and-a-half days. He recounted what had
happened under hypnosis and when I played him back the tape, he
broke down in tears and said =91did that happen to me?'. It's
impossible not to believe in it.

"UFOs are seen as a joke but it's almost an absolute certainty
they exist and are visiting this earth on a regular basis."

The MoD examines UFO reports to establish whether what was seen
has any defence significance.

A spokeswoman said: "We believe that rational explanations, such
as aircraft lights or natural phenomena, could be found for them
if resources were diverted for this purpose."
