August 22, 2010 – The nurse who claims to have seen a glowing UFO on a hillside has broken her silence over Ministry of Defence suggestions that it was nothing more than a combination of an earthquake and a meteor.
Pat Evans, whose description of the glowing ball she saw on North Wales’s Berwyn Mountains has prompted more than three decades of debate among Ufologists and scientists, described the MoD claims as “rubbish”.
And retired nurse and midwife Mrs Evans, who rarely speaks of the event, repeated her claim that she saw a UFO on January 23, 1974, in the incident known as the “Welsh Roswell”.
The Roswell incident was the alleged recovery of alien debris, including corpses, from an object that crashed near New Mexico, in the US, in 1947.
Mrs Evans, 72, from Llandderfel, near Bala, said: “It was unidentified because they couldn’t identify it and it couldn’t have got there any other way apart from being flown there, so it had to be a UFO of some sort.
“I’m talking about something that could only have got there by flying and landing.”
Locals heard a huge bang and saw a brilliant light in the sky over the Berwyn Mountains on the night.
