English country opens up their real x-files

Derbyshire's real life X-Files have been opened for the first time to reveal more than a dozen UFO sightings across the county.

According to the Ministry of Defence, 14 unexplained sightings in the county have been investigated by the military since 1999, including one reported by a police officer in Derby.

Other sightings include one last year in Derby, when a witness described seeing "a bright, red light" in the sky.

"The light was moving too quickly across the sky to be an aircraft," the witness later told the MoD.

The year before, a witness in Matlock reported seeing a "descending white light" and "rotating beams of light going upwards from the ground".

Another person in Yeldersley, near Ashbourne, reported seeing a "missile-shaped" object, which was "turquoise in colour, metallic and looked reflective, and was the length of an estate car".

Other reports include "four bright lights, plus an outer circle of a round object" spotted in Derby in 2002.

Also in 2002, a witness reported seeing a "large triangle-shaped object, with a large, white light on the front, and, in the centre, a group of four, static, red lights".

Nationwide, more than 100 UFO sightings are reported each year to the MoD.

Information about them is now being published following numerous requests for details through the Freedom of Information Act.

Although the MoD does not have any expertise in respect of UFOs, it is required to investigate every sighting in order to establish whether or not the UK's airspace has been compromised. A spokesman said: "The MoD examines reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity.

"If required, sighting reports are examined with the assistance of the department's air defence experts.

"Unless there's evidence of a potential threat, there's no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported."

However, correspondence between the MoD and members of the public who report sightings of strange objects reveals that Whitehall officials remain "totally open-minded" about the existence of UFOs.

The MoD does though state: "To date, the MoD knows of no evidence which substantiates the existence of these alleged phenomena.

"We believe that rational explanations, such as aircraft lights or natural phenomena, could be found for them if resources were diverted for this purpose, but it is not the function of the MoD to provide this kind of aerial identification service.

"It would be an inappropriate use of defence resources if we were to do so."

Omar Fowler, from the Derby-based Phenomenon Research Association, said that the UFO information from the MOD came as no surprise to him.

He said: "It will be very interesting to see what they've recorded but I doubt they'll be able to tell us anything we don't already know. In that respect, I won't be expecting any surprising findings.

"It is, however, an interesting development that the MoD is publishing what is reported to them."

The MoD is now preparing to publish even more of its UFO files, dating back to 1967, following further requests for the details through the Freedom of Information Act.

The documents due for release are witness reports of apparent UFO sightings, many by civil pilots and military personnel.

I think it's crazy to think that there aren't UFOs and aliens, but they still scare the fuck out of me.

If I did meet one, I would either be friendly or rip it's head off. I'm still not sure if I would even like to meet them. The theory that they are clones made for the purpose of transporting demon souls is freaky as well.

If the aliens ever did land here and make contact, this is what I'd do... I'd walk up to them all smooth and nonchalant and go, "Sup, dawg?"

Gotta let them know right off the bat they're not dealing with a punk. That's the way I roll.

I'd like to make contact with aliens, but I really don't want them to do this to me.......
