Sightings have been made across South Wales of a mysterious, and as yet unexplained, blue "blob" of light moving through the sky.
Andrea Harries told Wales Online she spotted the unidentified phenomenon in the sky from her garden in Swansea just after 6pm on Tuesday.
She said: "I came out into the garden with the dog and saw a blue, purplish light.
"It was bright but dimming every now and then. It moved over to Pontlliw and then towards Llanelli and then it just went."
She described it as being a "fair size", adding: "There was no noise and at the time there were no planes or anything – I don't know what it was."

University student Pixie Fear saw the light out her window while doing university work at her home a few miles north of Swansea.
Pixie, 22, said: "Me and my brother came outside and this blob lit up the sky and flashed on and off. It was just floating through the sky going west. It was huge.
"We did a plane tracker but there were no planes about – it was going between Llanelli and Carmarthen and was so bright.
"It seemed to go pretty far, at least a few miles and quite quickly – bearing in mind it was far away so probably looked slower than it was."
She added that a few minutes later a plane or helicopter went past. She said the plane was clear and looked very different to the mysterious light.

While no explanation has been offered for this enigmatic blue aurora, a similar phenomenon sighted over Bristol last Summer turned out to have a simple, and rather boring explanation.
Instead of a UFO, the mystery light in fact turned out to be a high-tech train which checks for wear and tear on the overhead electrified wires.

A similar sighting the year before also turned out to be Network Rail’s special train. At the time, a spokesperson for Network Rail said: “We can confirm this was not an unidentified flying object (UFO). It was rather an identified non-flying object (INFO) – namely a railway ballast tamping machine, which uses lasers.”
Reacting to the South Wales sightings, a Network Rail spokesperson told Daily Star Online: “We can confirm that we have no reports of any machinery in the area during this time that would have caused this light emission.”
