ufo sighted on halloween night
Winster driver 'seconds away' from photographing object.
A NERVOUS Winster driver was just seconds away from photographing a UFO
Derek Holmes (66) was driving home from Cromford when he spotted a
strange bright light in the sky.
Mr Holmes, from Lea Croft Road, said: "I thought to myself good God what
"I could see this very big, bright, white object.
"At first I thought it was a car coming from the other direction, but
then realised it was not moving."
"I felt nervous, it was a peculiar feeling, I had read before about UFOs
thinking there must be some simple explanation."
The UFO was first spotted by Mr Holmes on Bonsall Moor near the Salters
Lane junction at 10.32pm.
As he drove nearer the light it was obviously not a road vehicle but a
round airborn object, with curved edges.
Slowing down, Mr Holmes searched for a safe place to stop on the narrow
road, to capture the brilliant image on film.
But despite having a camera in the back he was too slow.
"The size of the light went down, it was as if someone had hit a dimmer
switch and it went yellow," added Mr Holmes.
"It started to move into the distance and then disappeared altogether."
