In 1977, a strange event occurred in the city of Pembrokeshire (Wales), which cannot be explained so far. Children from the local school claimed that they had seen an alien ship. And everything could be attributed to a child's fantasy, if later messages from adults would not come.
It all started with one student from the Broad Haven Elementary School, who told the teacher that he saw a UFO near the playground. After that, many of his classmates began to declare the object. At that time, David Davis was 10 years old, and he considered himself a great skeptic.
“I didn’t believe that classmates saw something. Therefore, as soon as the bell rang, I went to the area where I saw a UFO to inspect everything on my own. And then I saw this ship. He was elongated like a cigar with a small dome. The ship appeared only for a couple of seconds and disappeared behind the trees ”.
Davis said he didn’t feel fear, but he wanted to get away quickly.

The teachers did not believe the children and decided that they simply came up with the game. Then all the witnesses were taken to different rooms and asked to draw the object they saw. Although there were some differences, but the overall image of the UFO was viewed in all the drawings. Davis said that the following days seemed to him just wild, because everyone was passionate about talking about the object. After 2 months, an adult observer appeared in the form of the manager of a local hotel. Rosa Granville said that she saw an object “resembling an inverted plate in which two humanoids with pointed heads were sitting”.
“There was such a fever from the object that it burned my face. The plate shone with multicolored lights. And from this light came two beings in silver costumes ”.

How to explain these observations? Several military researchers were sent to the hotel, but they could not find any signs of landing or other witnesses, although there were burns on the manager’s face. There were children. It can be said that the friends decided to joke, but so that a whole class could come to an agreement, who thought of discussing the physical characteristics of the object in advance so as not to get caught in the check ... Ufologists doubt that this is possible.
The police began to suspect that there could be a joker in the city who spreads rumors and launches a ball or mechanism into the air that frightened the children. What about humanoids? This is also written off as a joke. In 1996, Glyn Edwards said that in 1977 he wandered around the city in a silver suit for fun. Also in the Air Force said that silver suits could be the standard refractory form of the American military personnel, who at that time fought the fire at the refinery. And the UFOs could only be airplanes.
The story of a student at Brod Haven School caused a stir in the media
In any case, this story attracted the attention of the entire world press. Ufologists are concerned about the fact that 42 years have passed, but none of matured eyewitnesses have changed their opinions or testimony. The police reports also found information that, during the observation period by children of UFOs, strange objects were also seen in the Hubberston school (Milford Haven).
Davis says he suffered a lot because of what happened:
“I never believed in newcomers and just shared what I saw. But me and my classmates laughed and teased for a long time. This event has greatly affected my life. I wish I just said nothing ”.
Neil Spring, who wrote a book about what happened, later became interested in this story. He managed to uncover a secret investigation of the military and police, who hid the findings from the press and the public. Spring believes that many of the observations were jokers, but they appeared after the first real reviews by children of UFOs. These events still raise many questions.
