Location: Leicester (UK/England),
Shape: Formation
Duration:30-40 seconds
Driving home i stopped at traffic lights. I saw a formation of 3 orange/brown lights flying in a equalateral formation (about a mile away? 1000 metres up?. Then a 4th light "materialised" in the middle. It was larger than the others. Darted away at speed (100mph at ground level) over the car.

I was driving home from Leicester to a village where my family live. It was about 3:30 am. I stopped at traffic lights. My attention was then caught by a formation of 3 lights flying about 1000 metres up, and about a mile away. The lights then moved towards the car, nearly overhead. There was no noticable noise. Suddenly a new light pulsed once slowly and then shone. This light was three times the size of the others and in the middle of the formation. It was also lighter on the outside than the inside. The object sped away at speed???? Perhaps it was moving at speed anyway. I could not tell whether they were changing altitude, growing???? or just gaining speed. It was very jerky movement. I moved my head over the steering wheel to get a better look. The lights disappeared from my view. I could not see much out of the back window so i could not see it. I continued home. This must have been seen by others as there was a car behind me at the Traffic lights. Although there is a military centre nearby, there is no way that this was a plane, a series of planes, Helicopters, et-al. I dont know what they were. Quite scary. I was terrified all night. I have decided to report this tonight as i heard you on a Radio show on Please dont use my name as it will effect my reputation.
