Red And White Lights Over Lickey Hills, South Birmingham UK

Date: October 10, 2010
Time: Between 7:40 p.m. and 7:55 p.m.

Hi There, I went out into the garden last night to have a cigarette. Whilst I was looking at the stars - a clear night, I saw flashing red and white lights which seemed to be coming from a single source (aircraft?) coming across the sky at a great speed.

It seemed to be travelling in one direction coming from north/east direction heading to south west. As I was watching, it seemed to suddenly catapult itself from the direction travelling to a 90 degree angle - towards the north. I was amazed and called my girlfriend out to look.

The lights continued flashing, the craft or whatever it was seemed very, very far away - but the lights showed up clearly. They were silent but It was travelling at an amazing speed which we found incredible - we have never seen any aircraft or helicopter travel so fast or be able to change direction so swiftly.

As we followed the lights across the sky for what must have been a matter of a few minutes, another set of lights exactly the same appeared heading towards it until they crossed nearby each other and then continued in same direction until they dropped beyond the horizon and we could no longer see them.

This happened between 7.40 pm and 7.55pm. We live near the Lickey Hills, South Birmingham.

We have been searching the internet to see if anyone else saw what we saw. We would be interested to hear.

Kind Regards.
