Location of Sighting: Ripley,Derbyshire
Date of Sighting: 17th August 2016
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.
