Too big to be a balloon - i haven't been able to completely forget it. Would really like an explanation.

We came out of a local restaurant durning school holidays. I usually waited outside when my husband paid the bill. My son and i saw a large white dot like a large star fly swiftly from one side of our vision to the other. We thought it was probably a shooting star but it had no tail. I went into the restaurant to tell my husband and when we came out it was gone. We walked back to our car, about 50 or so metres away down a side turning and looking up we saw a large black circle with light yellow lights and as far as i can remember now some white ones too. The shape was black and looked like a few houses high completely over us. My husband who is not a believer in anything extra-ordinary said run to get into the car. We all ran. We had the news on that night and several others. There was nothing about it. I was a little histerical. The car started ok. We were ok. Nobody else saw it. I always assumed a prank of some sort, but how they did it i will never know. There was a rubber tyre on the tree which looked so small in comparison. My hubby wont speak about it now. My son was 14. there was an aircraft in the distance to my right accross the road and looked much higher but i never really thought about that until now. I have just gone on the internet and am not too sure about how safe my details are, and it is old hat. I will contact again in the name beneath should i feel safer later.
