Black triangle sighting - via strange white light effects

Approaching the airport on foot to collect my wife from the adajcent train staion, I noticed an aircraft coming in on the main flight path, the reason my attention was drawn to it on this occasion was 1. it was'nt displaying normal landing lights (at all) 2. the lights that were "on" were a series of "moving" -in sequence- white lights reminisant of strip lighting effects for decorations e.g at partys , christmes trees ! absolutly the bizzarest thing, the light sequence was in the direction of travel left-right from my perspective 3.The airport itself was fog-bound and closed to traffic i.e for another 2 days 4,no sound from my observation: object estmated to be at 1000 ft and 500ft, although on the decent path of the airport the craft appeard to be travelling on a level trajectory
