We saw a cluster of several star like obects high in the clear night sky, they moved in different directions two of which came together and moved away as one.
Another of the objects moved across the sky to the west, whilst another moved towards the south, we were with our children at the time, we also brought this exciting event to the attention of two people in a nearby car.
After twenty minutes or so the objects had disappeared.
We reported this incident to Jodrell Bank observatory but never had a response. We did not imagine what we saw, to this day this is an unforgettable experience, and we would love to know what was going on on that October evening so many years ago.
