One evening in April 2010, a very bright light was seen in the sky to the North-West of Staveley, which changed shape several times.
At 10.58 p.m. on the 8th April 2014 Samuel Lisi saw through the bedroom window of his home in Staveley a very bright light coming from high up in the sky, to the North. He described it as shooting straight off and going towards the ground. This could possibly have been a shooting star.

One winter’s evening in the late 1960s or early 1970s, a number of witnesses saw a circular craft with lights showing through a row of portholes, hovering at what seemed to be about 150 feet off the ground, above the houses of New Tupton.
Driving home from a party, at about 2 o'clock one morning in 1978, a couple saw an odd light in a barn at Dry Hurst Farm, as they were driving north along Cullumbell Lane. Then, all of a sudden, a disc shaped object with 3 white lights hovered over a field on the right just before Buntingfield Lane. Just as they reached Buntingfield Lane, the lights vanished and there was nothing to be seen. When the couple went back to investigate the next afternoon, they found that a delivery man who used to do nights just dumped all his items in the farmyard at Dry Hurst Farm, where that odd object had been the night before.
