Location of Sighting: Ripley, Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: 21/11/2010
Witness Name: Sue J
Witness Statement: I was driving to work early on Sunday morning with no other cars on the road that I saw. I looked at a bright star like object which I thought was my lucky star that I wish on, when the light shot down like a shooting star but got much bigger and I realised it had come very close. It was very cloudy too and it had come below the thick cloud. I would say it was the size of a 2 pence piece held at arms length. I realised it was then going along with me as I drove south. I then thought it was the local police helicopter with a search light on as it was so bright, so I pulled over and opened my car window but there was no noise at all. I did notice it was also a triangular shape. When I reached a roundabout I lost sight of it as I was too busy looking at the road. As I looked around I realised that it was now on my left hand side and had travelled a long way in just a few seconds, which a plane could not do. I phoned my boyfriend and told him all about it.
Today, Monday I have noticed low flying jets in the area, which we never get, so I wonder why?
Please let me know if anyone else has seen anything like this.
