Heanor, Derbyshire-Autumn 2006 (exact date not known)

Location of Sighting: Heanor, Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: Autumn 2006 (exact date not known)
Time: Approx 8.00pm
Witness Name: Tim Birkin
Witness Statement: On arriving home I got out of my car and happened to look up at the stars (clear night but stars not too bright as I lived in the centre of a town). I noticed a line of what looked like very dim stars (probably about 8-10 in total) all following each other probably at the same height as you might see a satellite moving across the sky. After watching for about 30 seconds the lights started moving into a circular pattern in a “follow my leader” pattern and were just circling around for a few minutes with no audible sound. They were very dim and didn’t seem to be in the atmosphere and if you’d not been looking purposefully at the stars and night sky you probably wouldn’t have noticed them. I’ve never seen anything like that since. They definitely were not planes and the lights were very still, not flickering, as I said looking like you might see a faint satellite moving slowly across the sky but all following in a line then moving into the circular pattern all following each other. I very often think about seeing this and to this day haven’t a clue what the objects were.

Ripley,Derbyshire-17th August 2016

Location of Sighting: Ripley,Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: 17th August 2016
Time: 12.50pm
Witness Name: John

Witness Statement: It was a nice sunny day,with a few scattered clouds around,and i was having a cigarette outside the back door,and watching a few airliners flying overhead,of wich there seemed to be quite a few that day especially with East Mids airport being only 20 miles south,when i noticed a small silvery glinting round object,to the NE at fairly high altitude.The object was stationary and airliners were flying close by it,but not quite as high. I took two photos on my mobile,and it moved very slowly about two inches from north to south in about 10 minutes an became stationary again for about 1 minute then started to move south again which i filmed,on my mobile for 2 and a half minutes,till it disappeared into cloud. I went back inside for 15 minutes an returned outside to see if it was still there,and the object was back but about 4 inches across the sky to the north east,from the direction it came. It disappeared into cloud again after about 30 seconds but after the cloud had gone in a few minutes,it had disappeared altogether. It was obviously under intelligent control and definitely not a plane,balloon or helicopter.Its not noticeable on the photos or video but probably would be if they could be enhanced.

Belper, Derbyshire – 16th April 2016

Location of Sighting: Belper, Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: 16/04/2016
Time: 5 am
Witness Name: Heather

Witness Statement: Got up at 5am as heard a car outside and looked out of window. Over Holbrook towards Duffield saw two rows of very bright lights and every few seconds the lights moved sideways very rapidly the sky was lit up around them. I watched for 45 minutes and then they vanished before my eyes. Kept thinking are they lazers but they looked like nothing I have ever seen before.

Bolsover, 53N,1W -3rd July 2014

Location of Sighting: Bolsover, UK 53N,1W
Date of Sighting: 03 July 2014
Time: 11:30pm – 12:15am
Witness Name: Garry Johnson

Witness Statement: Standing on my balcony, I noticed two bright white objects appear next to a normal star in the North East sky, 30deg elevation, they had formed a triangle with the normal star. I noticed that one of the two started to move slowly to the left as it slowed to a stop the second started to move towards the first to form the same diagonal line as it started. The second stopped, then both moved downwards towards the horizon to disappear.

5 minutes later one reappeared even more brightly and faded in the same area.

30 minutes later another appeared in a Northern position to me and travelled across the sky for 30 seconds towards the East and faded.

12:15am a very bright ball of light appeared and disappeared directly East at about 20 deg elevation.

I track satellites, and also have an aircraft scanner and these objects where definitely neither of these.
They looked like stars, but moved and stopped and faded, very unusual movement almost a sliding effect.
