Further Description of Sighting: I was testing out my new digital camera for sound out of my window at midnight to capture fireworks and whilst doing this i happened to notice these silent majestic lights going across the sky.I did not take them seriously first but i cannot explain what they were and when i read the account over manchester it was uncanny.
I have captured a couple on film the only thing is that i could not get to switch to manual focus so the auto focus could not cope too well as there was nothing really for it to judge distances.You can tell though it is not an aircraft and if it were i am sure Gatwick would not have approved having several objects in such close vicinity unless they were a lot further away than they seemed. all aircraft would have nav lights on anyway so there would have been a flicker of sorts and landing lights would be on at altitudes of less than 10,000 feet.
