Location: Yeovil (Somerset) (UK/England),
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 20 mins
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
A loud sound that slowly moved from North to South like slowing aircraft engines then oscillating

I was awake at 5.20am and a few minutes later heard what appeared to be an aircraft slowing down overhead as often happens here as we are on the flight path to heathrow from the states, but this noise then intensified so it sounded like a hundred aircraft slowing down then oscillated (faded then got louder and faded and so on) and then slowly moved from north to south, I opened the window to see if i could see anything but trees were in my line of sight however I also heard a helicopter, it could have been more, which appeared to be moving with the sound, after 20 minutes it faded into the distance, at no time did I see anything. It was quite misty at the time being a typical lovely english late summer / early autumn morning and quite still and quiet. I could also liken the sound to wind howling around a building, but with no wind today at all. I can't stress enough that this sound was extremely loud for quite a few minutes, enough to wake my wife up, and quite unlike any sound I've ever heard in my life before.
