The Welsh do seem to have had a lot of strange things happen over the years, some of the UFOs are said to have been caught on radar and one on a web cam/weather cam. I'm sure I saw on a documentary that the army closed off a mountain at one point and wouldn't let anyone go up there for a few days, that might have been weeks, my memory isn't so good......

It’s not a blockbuster UFO story like a Roswell or a Rendlesham Forest. There are no tales of abduction , no little grey men, and no evidence other than eye witness testimony. Some of which may be exaggerated or even fabricated by people seeking attention. However something odd really was going on from late winter into the summer of 1977 around Broad Haven?
Novelist's UFO research raises questions
“I located and spoke to many witnesses who never went on record with their sightings at the time,” said Neil. “My research has led to new questions being asked in the House of Lords. At the time of the sightings, the MOD asked the military police to look into the happenings, and did not tell ministers - or parliament..”
"A number of recently released Ministry of Defence files leave little doubt that a small number of sightings of aerial phenomena - particularly by military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers - remain unexplained and unidentified,” Lord Black explained. “Neil Spring's fascinating new novel, inspired by declassified MoD files, underlines how many unanswered questions there are. There needs to be further examination of these issues in the hope of learning something new."

The object was pearlescent silvery-grey, approximately 40 feet long, torpedo/cigar-shaped with an upper domed section that covered the central third of the vehicle and which was topped with a red pulsating light.
There were no alien invasions or tales of abduction, yet a UFO sighting by a group of Pembrokeshire school children remains one of the most famous cases in Wales. It was 40 years ago when a class of pupils at Broad Haven Primary School said they spotted a UFO in a field near their playground. It was one of a wave of sightings in the area in 1977 - dubbed the Dyfed Triangle. David Davies was 10 at the time and heard reports of pupils seeing flying saucers throughout the day. "I was a natural born sceptic so after the bell rang I decided to go to the area that the children said they had seen it," he told BBC Wales. He described seeing a silver "cigar-shaped" craft with a "dome covering the middle third". "My sighting only lasted a couple of seconds. It popped up and then went back behind a tree." Mr Davies said he did not feel afraid, "more in awe and wonderment", although he admitted he had "a strange desire to run away".
Our sighting was not the last visit to the school though and unbeknown to the children and most of the small community the craft returned a few days later and was on this occasion seen by a teacher and three of the canteen staff. I have never in the last 38 years exaggerated or sensationalised the account of what I saw and have never suggested that what we saw was of extra-terrestrial origin.....
