Is there anybody or anything out there? It’s long been a question that has puzzled and perplexed people, and suspected UFO sightings add to the mystery and the debate as to whether aliens exist.
There have been a number of reported sightings of unidentified flying objects in Derbyshire over recent years which have left residents wondering if we really have been visited by extra-terrestrial beings. Here, we take a look back at all of the reported sightings in recent years, including a bright blue phenomenon in Swadlincote.
Some reported issues such as power outages following the dazzling flash on August 25, 2016, and speculation began as to what the cause of the flash was. There were also suggestions that it could be aliens, others predicted it was a UFO, while there was even speculation of a zombie apocalypse – as well as a more simple explanation such as it being a bolt of lightning.
Andrew Dickson of AND Photography has sent in footage of the blue flash captured on his dash cam. The flash can be seen in the distance, clearly lighting up the sky. Mr Dickson said: “I wondered what on earth it was, as it certainly didn’t seem like normal lightening.”

His sighting sparked a kerfuffle among paranormal fans last February. He got in touch with out sister paper the Derby Telegraph hoping that readers could explain his strange sighting in the sky, which he captured by accident with his camera.
Was there a big flash in the Derbyshire skies?
Reports of an explosion and a large flash in the skies above Derbyshire sparked debate on social media in April 2015. Social media was abuzz with reports of an “orange flash” followed by a “bang” at around 10pm at night. It later emerged that they were due to a fire at a defence company that makes explosives and pyrotechnics.
