One of the most famous UFO stories can be traced back to the Welsh mountainside.
Knowns popularly as the Welsh Roswell, the UFO sighting occurred in 1974 in the Berwyn Mountains.
On January 23, 1974, on the Berwyn Mountains in Llandrillo, Merionethshire, Wales, lights and noises were observed by locals which people couldn’t explain.
According to scientific evidence, the event was generated by an earthquake combined with sightings of a bright meteor widely observed over Wales and northern England at the time.
However, not many were convinced by those explanations. UFOlogists at the time claimed how a UFO had crashed in the mountainside, and the British Government covered up the military’s recovery of a crashed spaceship.
During the UFO sighting, the Institute of Geological Sciences reported that a magnitude 3.5 earthquake was felt at 8:38 p.m. over a wide area of northern Wales and as far as Liverpool, England.
But despite talks of meteors and earthquakes, people were convinced they had witnessed an unidentified flying object in the sky, and according to former Ministry of Defense employee and UFO investigator Nick Pope, the UFO wreckage was likely taken to RAF Rudloe Manor.
Now, nearly half a decade later, a mysterious map has surfaced, which allegedly shows the flightpath of the mysterious UFO that crashed into the Welsh mountainside, and UFO Researcher Russ Kellet has gone public with it.
According to Kellet, the map was given to him by witnesses of the UFO incident, and it clearly shows the path of the UFO before it crashed.
As noted by Metro, one of the witnesses claims to have seen an object on the hillside and ‘Saw bright red light, like coal fire red. Large perfect circle. Like a big bonfire.’
But despite many people claiming to have seen UFO’s in the sky, Sceptics argue that both the noise and the activity that followed were caused by earthquakes and meteors.
However, Kellet claims that five witnesses gave him the map which features red dots where the incident is said to have occurred, with black dotted lines leading to the dot from the west show the alleged path of RAF jets and UFO, reports Metro.
“The five saw a strange object and got out to have a look, but the military were there and told them to leave,’ Mr. Kellett said. They moved to a better position and started to take photos. They were all friends and four were in the military during World War Two. Afterward, they started doing their own research and the map is a result of what they found out and shows the flight paths.”
“It was very strange and I was a little bit spooked. I’ve carried the map around for a long time as part of my research. I’m getting older now and just wanted to put it out there to see what people make of it and if there was anybody else who could shed light on what happened,” concluded Kellet.
