September 2015 - Is This A UFO Flying Over Caernarfon Castle Gwynedd, Wales, UK
Watch this clip of a small, dark object seen floating just above the castle's iconic walls and judge for yourself.
A UFO has been spotted hovering above one Wales’s most famous landmarks. The sighting was captured on camera in broad daylight by Owain Powell and uploaded to the “UFO Alien Sightings” channel on Youtube earlier this month.
The small dark object seen in the video
The 40 second clip, which appears to have been filmed from the Maes in Caernarfon, shows a small dark object floating over the town’s iconic castle.
As the camera zooms in, the object begins to descend slowly before disappearing out of view behind the castle walls. It could be that the UF0 - which stands for unidentified flying object - seen in the clip was a drone, small aircraft or even a bird. But this this isn’t the first time that a UFO sighting has been recorded in North Wales.
On January 23, 1974, people living near the Berwyn Mountains reported hearing a huge bang, felt earth tremors and saw a brilliant light in the sky above the range.

Just last year the UFO Investigations and Research Unit announced that it was turning its attention to Anglesey in a quest to gather information on extraterrestrial phenomena. This followed numerous sightings being reported in the area, in particular, near Puffin Island.
