Posted: 3/4/2003
Location: Taunton (near) (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
The object was made up of a formation of small lights, plus one light moving independantly around main formation

We were travelling on the M5 motorway between Taunton and Barnstaple. We were travelling westbound towards Exeter. I was in the front passenger seat. On the opposite carriageway, just above treetop level, their appeared a group of lights. The lights were in a definite formation, and at first it appeared they were part of an aircraft. However, we could see there was no substance between the lights, although they were all travelling in a very slow, but perfect formation. They were a normal orangy colour. What really caught my attention was the light that was adjacent to the formation, either blue or green, that was moving about totally randomly. The lights were not a reflection, they had substance. I alerted my family who also watched them as we passed them and they then appeared to change course behind our vehicle and cross the motorway. We lost sight then as we travelled on. There was no audible sound. Although the car windows were closed, if this had been a helicopter or larger, there would have been considerable noise as we were so close. Again, I reiterate there was no substance or form between the lights. Because it was dark at the time, we could not observe the reactions of other road users. It was very strange, and we were in a sort of denial of what we had seen. We racked our brains for a logical explanation but could not come up with anything. I do not know if there were any reports of this sighting made by other people on the road that night. Exmoor National Park lies in the direction that the UFO would have probably travelled from.
