A bright light hovered some distance away for a minute, before bursting into 4 or 5 lights and all of them disappearing.

I was driving North along the A23 from Brighton, UK, to London, UK when i spotted a very bright light in the sky. At first i just wrote it off as an aircraft flying straight towards me, but then it suddenly burst into 4 or 5 small lights in a line for a second, and then disappeared completely.
