Bolsover man snaps UFO on video camera

UFO experts have confirmed that a mystery object has been seen hovering over Bolsover – and one resident has video footage to help officials investigate the spooky goings-on.

Eagle-eyed local Jim Webley (56) and his wife Christine first spotted the "peculiar" object in the Derbyshire skies over the Bank Holiday weekend and say the strange blob-like sphere returned twice last week.

Jim told Chad this week how he grabbed his video camera when he saw lights glowing through the window net at their Portland Avenue home.

"We looked out and saw a white sphere in the sky. We watched closely as it seemed to be glowing red and green," he said. "It looked very strange. I knew it couldn't be an aeroplane — it was the wrong shape."

Co-spotter Christine (48) says they are convinced the object was not aircraft or a star, adding: "We are both just really anxious to find out what it is."

East Midlands UFO Research Association has already viewed the video and a spokesman told Chad this week: "We can't tell if it is visitors from another planet. It certainly isn't an aircraft or star — it is at this moment an Unidentified Flying Object."

The couple say the blob-like object returned to the Bolsover skies again on Thursday and on Sunday night.

Says Jim: "It was definitely the same object. It was darting around the sky with its green and red flashing lights and travelling in a circular shape. We want to know why it keeps coming back."

Now UFO spotter Jim is keeping a log as well the two hours of video footage of the strange object.

The couple say the UFO appears in the Bolsover sky in the direction of Ashover from around 10pm to midnight and have urged other locals to keep their eyes peeled in a bid to solve the mystery.
