Video Evidence...Bright Silver lights in evening sky Pre stars... no way these were stars... random movement up down left right

We are a family living in a rural farmhouse close to the market town of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England. In the dusk tonight we observed and captured on video initially one then rapidly a number of bright sparkling lights appeared from nowhere in the sky that moved randomly across the sky and against the prevailing wind direction. You could describe these as fireworks they were so close to the ground but fireworks certainly dont go up, then down then sideways then float then up again or left, followed by hiding behind a tree then back out again. They went from being visible to invisible and back again. Never seen anything like it. We captured them on video. The lights seemed to come towards us and then the camera battery suddenly died, even though it had over 45 minutes left on it.

We live about 10 miles from a large USAF base called Lakenheath which is also only a couple of miles away from RAF Mildenhall another USAF base in Suffolk, England. For all we know it could be something military that we don't know about... however it flies, and we don't know what it is.
