From Dr. E. J. M., of Tylorstown.

June 18th, 1905.

About 10 p.m. on Saturday night I was coming home with Mrs. M. when she drew my attention to a bright light which could be seen over Libanus (C.M.) Chapel, towards the side of the mountain. It appeared as a ball of fire about the size of a cheese plate; it was perfectly fixed.

As soon as I saw it I marked its position, in order to be sure that it could not be due to some one with a light on the road which passes over the mountain, but its position was far enough away from the road.

I then looked towards Stanley Town — which is on the same side of the mountain in another direction, and which is nearer to the place I was standing — in order to compare the lights from the gas lamps on the road. There was no comparison between the lights, as the gas lamps were not nearly so brilliant as this light, and the light I saw was of a more reddish colour.

It remained fixed in the same position for about three minutes, and then disappeared instantaneously. Mrs. Jones was in the chapel at the time holding a meeting. I may say that I was not thinking of the light at the time.
