Glowing fuzzy ball that seemed to crash into a valley of forest.

I was in my bedroom when i opened the curtains to shut my window, when i saw a glowing light, shimmering different kinds of colours from blue, green yellow etc. I was the only one up at the time, and i noticed a small craft emerge from the ball, and it seemed to whizz round it, the ball wasnt solid, it was more fuzzy. There was a bright moon that night, and very little wind or cloud. The ball appeared to dive downwards into the Goyt Valley (about 2 miles from my house) and it lit the sky up for 3/4 seconds, there was no bang, but i heard sirens coming from the main road going towards the Forest area. Though upon looking at local and national news, there was nothing on what had happened and when i asked about the sirens to the local station, they said it was nothing and for me not to worry. I live on the flight path into Manchester Airport, so i am familiar with Aircraft lights and sounds, and from the altitude the object was, it could not have been an aircraft or other man made aircraft that i know of.
