‘An intense bright white’, which lit up the skies above Heanor has had an internet forum buzzing with talk of a UFO sighting.
A post on popular website ufo-uk.co.uk by a Loscoe resident describes the phenomena, which allegedly took place on January 26, at around 10pm.
The user, who goes by the pseudonym ‘Dawn’, said: “I was sat on the floor in the living room talking to my boyfriend, facing the window, when outside I saw a massive white flash that lit up the whole sky. It only lasted a split second. It was like it had come from a ball of light, not like lightning.
