- Sky Lights Up For NZ Post Pilots
- There have been sightings of a meteor streaking its way across the upper South Island and lower North Island. Pilots describe
seeing a bright white and green light that lit up the cockpit as if it were daylight. The meteor had crashed into the sea somewhere
off the east coast of the lower North Island.
- A huge fireball lit up the night sky over Cardiff in Wales UK
- Four hours later, at 2:45 am Saturday 31st July 2004 a second object impacted a remote hillside near Cwmaman in Aberdere,
Wales. Witnesses say the impact lit up the sky and a huge explosion shook all the houses in the area. Three fires were seen burning
on the hillside and it was soon covered with police and firemen with torches. Despite an obvious large presence of the local
authorities who cordoned off the area, subsequent enquiries to the police and the fire brigade have been met with denial of any
events that night. Police claim that there is no record on their computer of anything happening that night. The mystery deepens.
