Bright red light hovering and taking off

Before i begin i'd just like to say im not a nut job and have just stumbled on this site after doing a google search, basically i just wanted to tell someone about what i saw, wether folks believe me or not i dont care!

I was sat downstairs watching a movie around 1.20am (UK time) and i heard a sound outside so i pulled the curtain across to have a look because our area has had a number of break-ins and to my absolute shock was this bright red light in the middle of the sky over the houses just hovering there in mid air with what looked like a brighter light moving around it in the middle.

It stayed in the same spot for around three to four minutes (it could have been in the sky longer, i dont know) then did kind of a small circular motion then took off in the other direction at a speed I would consider too fast to be a helicopter. Another thing, while it was turning it seemed to flash an orangy colour for a second.

During the time it was hovering i ran upstairs to wake everyone up and come have a look. My mother finally got out of bed and came to have a look too, by the time she got there it was taking off over in the far distance but she did see the 'craft' moving and agreed it was too fast for a helicopter.

As i am writing this right now i have goosebumps on my arms as you just never believe you would ever see anything like that being as i am in the UK and most of these reports seem to come from America.
