UFO tally hits 19
THE DALES UFO mystery has deepened yet further following two more
Over the last few months, Mercury readers have reported seeing flying
saucers, balls of fire and wedge-shaped craft in the skies over the
Dales and Peaks.
Now another UFO - shaped like a bowler hat - has been seen by two
people hovering over Curbar Gap near Calver.
A 46-year-old Youlgrave man, who asked not to be named, said the
object was jet black and had a diameter of 100 feet.
He and a friend saw the UFO at sunset on Saturday, January 6. It was
300 yards away from them and 1,000 feet high.
We watched it for ten minutes, then it just disappeared into thin air,
It wasnt a normal aircraft - there were no wings or an obvious power
source or jet stream.
It was just spinning with no noise apart from a low hum. There were no
lights or portalls.
I was taken aback. It was nothing like Ive ever seen before - it was
huge. What it was, I dont know.
Last Friday, Bakewell woman Heather Shuttleworth was travelling
towards Haddon Bank when she looked out of her car window over Beeley
Moor at 5.40am.
She and her husband saw two bright lights, stopped the car and looked
skywards through a pair of binoculars.
Mrs Shuttleworth added: I knew they werent aeroplane lights - they
were too bright.
My husband carried his binoculars in the car as in past weeks we
thought we had seen strange lights but thought they were aeroplanes.
We couldnt believe what we saw. The lights were the shape of what
flying saucers look like on documentaries.
My husband got back in the car and about one mile from Friden towards
Stanton Moor, there was a red bright light and an orange bright light
coming towards each other.
