One evening, a confused local in south Wales called 999 to report a “bright, stationary” UFO that had been hovering “in the air” for “at least half an hour”. The police arrived to investigate. The transcript of the ensuing Control Room conversation reads:"The List: Strange encounters"
Control: “Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?”
Officer: “Yes. It’s the moon. Over.”
