The UFO Phenomenon

Sheen: 'Port Talbot is on some weird alien map'

Actor Michael Sheen has described some very strange UFO experiences he's had at his hometown in Wales.
Sheen, who is well known for starring in movies such as 'Frost/Nixon' as well as in Amazon's recent series 'Good Omens', was speaking on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theater podcast recently.

"I think Port Talbot, where I come from, is on some weird alien map," he said. "It's like some sort of lay-by. The lady who lived next door - who was a very respectable lady and wouldn't make up stories - told us that one morning she was in the kitchen which overlooked the back garden."

"She said she was standing there making a coffee and a flying saucer came down and hovered over her back garden and then went. Of course, you think that's nonsense but she was a very serious lady."

Sheen claims that both he and his father have had similar experiences.
"One day I was coming home from school," he said. "I was just about to turn up the path to my house and coming round the mountain was a formation of lights. There was a formation of some things coming round and going out across the sea then disappearing."

"And then years later on New Year's Eve - not that long ago, about five years ago - my dad, who had not had a drink that night, went up to bed."

"He said he saw a light in the sky. My dad is a character but is not someone who would make this up. He said he saw a thing in the sky with lights going around it - it was there for ages then it shot off."

"I think Port Talbot is some kind of hub."

It wouldn't be an helicopter or aeroplane. They don't have them in Wales yet. They're still trying to get used to they newfangled Motorcars.

Could have been a sky lantern, before they were banned.

Alien map is a big assumption. Both times i saw a close up saucer were in a city, the state capital. My guess was that it was for a reason such as local involvement. To guess a correspondence on an alien map would require more knowledge of the inhabitants than just seeing a ship for a moment. This musing is meaningless.

Lol.  I am taking you are joking and you do not mean an alien craft from another planet?  Do you mean saucer as in cup and saucer?

Port Talbot is one of the most heavily polluted town in the UK, heck europe. Got a feeling that will have something to do with it.

Sure it wasnt a seagull dive bombing you for your chippy? Don't get that in Ogmore by Sea or Southerndown.
