10 To 12 Lights Observed Over Dobcross Greater Manchester UK

Date: March 2, 2011
Time: 9:10 p.m.

I saw a steady line of lights to the southeast, coming from behind the line of hills that sit behind Greenfield. I thought at first it was the window lights from an airliner as it was on the normal flight path for Manchester Airport, and there were other airliner movements at the same time, but the line was too long for that.

Then I thought maybe it was fire lanterns, but it was in a steady horizontal line about 10-12 in all, and the occasional light flickered. The best way to visualize it, would be the Red Arrows in line astern with landing lights on. Sighting lasted about 60 seconds.
