Mystery Over UFO Sighting

A Flintshire man is looking for answers after seeing five
unexplained lights in the sky on Christmas Day.

Harry Hughes, of Grays Road, Mynydd Isa, was returning some
extra chairs to the shed after enjoying Christmas dinner with
his family at about 7.20pm.

He said: "I looked up and saw what looked like five bright
orangey-red fireballs flying through the sky, coming from the
Bodfari direction.

"They were travelling quite fast, about 10-12 seconds apart and
were revolving. They were travelling too fast to be aircraft and
they were completely silent."

Harry called to his wife Pam to look at the strange objects
before they disappeared and as she followed him out to the
garden, they began to change direction.

Harry said: "They had been travelling west, but then they began
to change direction one by one and started heading north. They
were travelling at a high speed when they began to go north and
were slanting upwards.

"My wife saw the last two and she looked at them through
binoculars. The last one, which was bigger than all the rest,
stopped momentarily then shot upwards, following the others

"The police helicopter travelled past our house about 10 minutes
later. If it had been a bit earlier, then I'm sure police would
have noticed these objects."

Harry's description of the mysterious fireballs matches that of
Leigh and Lynn Williams, of Borras, Wrexham, who caught sight of
several strange orange orbs in the sky in July, and he said he
believed they were similar.

The couple also managed to take a video of the strange sighting,
which was posted on the Evening Leader website and was the
subject of much public debate.

Some posters, and UFO experts who spoke to the Leader, felt the
incident merited further investigation, while others dismissed
the sighting as being the result of Chinese lanterns.

Speaking at the time, Lynn said: "There were seven lights flying
fast over the house. Two of them were flying round each other.
They were flying very close together, closer than planes. They
were going so fast we couldn't focus on them.

Leigh added: "There was no noise whatsoever. Surely if they were
aircraft there would have been lots of noise. My wife was
panicking. We just want to know what it was. When they went over
it happened so quick. They moved very smoothly and were

Harry said: "I have no idea what these lights were, but I am
really glad that I have seen something like this and I am glad
my wife is able to verify that they were totally unexplained.
I'll be looking out for more over the next few days.

"I'm just sorry we weren't able to get a picture or a video of
them, but there wasn't enough time."
