Witness Statement
I was standing out side the rear of our house having a cigarette and was looking up at the sky and looking at the stars as I normally do. Sometimes I notice satellites and watch them as they travel across the sky. Tonight I noticed a larger object, red in colour travelling very fast, at first I thought it might be a bird like a red kite and some light was reflecting back off it but it turned suddenly and travelled off very very fast and disappeared. At first I thought it may have disappeared behind a cloud but after looking hard I couldn’t see any high altitude clouds.

Black Oval Object-Chesterfield Derbyshire-2nd October 2019

Witness Statement
My wife and I were stood on our back doorstep at 10 past 12am when my wife noticed a black oval object directly above us It seemed very high and she asked me to look, I saw this object and it was going in a northerly direction and as I looked it gathered speed and went northwards at an alarming rate, certainly faster than any object I have seen before and disappeared over the horizon in less than five seconds. It was oval in shape and I estimate it to have been over 38 thousand feet as the aircraft around here are normally at this height.
I was a serving member of The Royal Air Force for ten years and have never seen anything move this fast before I checked with the Flightradar app and nothing was showing so I can only guess as to what it was but as I have said we have nothing that can accelerate at that speed. We are both 67 and we both saw it.

3 White Lights-Belper Derbyshire-26 February 2019

Witness Statement
I looked out of my sitting room window, it was not completely dark, I was very surprised to see a row of three off white light at an angle, quite low in the sky. I imagine it is some sort of aircraft, it was not the front landing lights, I see those all time. Orion’s Belt was to the above left of these lights. They were moving away from me towards the south. The three lights were white with a yellowish tinge, they were in a straight line, attached to something I could not see, between the middle and right hand light and just slightly above was a very small red flashing light. I went outside to listen,as by the size of the lights, it looked to be quite a large plane that was also unusually low and flying at 90 degrees to the usual flight path. I could not hear anything out of the ordinary, certainly not a low flying plane. By this time it was moving towards the horizon (a hill about 1/3 mile away) I could still clearly see the three lights. I was very shocked and disconcerted for the rest of the evening. I looked up “three light aircraft configurations” on the internet but could only find landing lights on front of planes. I watched the sky at the same time yesterday, but saw nothing. I just wondered if anyone knows what kind of plane it was, I have lived under flight paths for 50 plus years and have never seen anything like this. What ever it was I was viewing it from behind.

Triangular Object and Bright Ball Objects-Heanor, Derbyshire-1990 -1995

Location of Sighting: Heanor, Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: 1990 -1995
Time: Around 21:00
Witness Name: James Beeby
Witness Statement: I can’t remember the exact date. I remember it was in the 1990’s. I think around 1993. I was young around 12 years old.
It was on western drive, marlpool. In the back yard. Looking SSW over Shipley park. I noticed in the clear night sky. “Stars that appeared to move” little bright balls near in scale to background stars. I noticed that three of these started to move. Then they moved in various directions changing trajectories instantly. I moved to the front yard and to the street to continue viewing. I noticed that some people in the street had also noticed the lights. I walked down my street to my friends also viewing the light. We stood at the lowest part of the street where the Jitty to sunningdale avenue provided a clearing to view these lights, which by this time had orientated themselves In a line above Shipley park. Now they are slightly larger in size than before. They began to project beams of “light” straight down and moved across the tree line. They did not operate as one. They appeared to operate independently from one another. As we looked around I / we noticed over my right shoulder in the sky above and slightly behind me a large triangluar black object. In each corner there was a red circular glow. It made no sounds and crept very slowly towards the tree line. It was positioned above the cemetery perhaps further away. I was unable to determine the scale and position. When I returned to look at the lights above the tree line they had just stopped the beams of lights and then vanished into the distance. I looked back at the triangular object and it had vanished. I will remember this for ever. I’m shaking as I recall this now.

Bright Slow Moving Object – Bakewell-22nd July 2017

Location of Sighting: Bakewell
Date of Sighting: 22nd July 2017
Time: 11.18 pm
Witness Name:Cory Smith
Witness Statement: Bakewell has ufo’s for sure. Sunday 23rd July 2017 I was stargazing with my wife and 2 children on a clear night in an unlit area. The view of the stars was stunning. We saw various airplanes fly over and a few shooting stars. Then to my right I noticed what looked like a normal star moving very slowly and it dimmed and disappeared. This could have just been a plane so I ignored it. Approximately 40 min later I saw it again to my left. This time it was heading in our direction over my left side. At first it looked just like a star moving slowly but then I noticed it was fading out then reappearing and it was not travelling in a straight line as a plane would. It was wobbling from side to side in a patterned motion not just blowing around.It made no sound and it was a calm night , and as I watched it reappear it became very bright, far brighter than anything we have ever seen in the sky apart from the sun. It remained at full brightness even after it was behind us and it became out of sight as it went behind trees that were behind us. It was in our view for 2-3 minutes. My wife was definitely frightened by what we witnessed. I have no idea what it was. I could guess it was a quite small car sized object flying at approximatly 2000 feet. But really have no idea. It was like no aircraft I have ever seen.
