Description: Two strings of red lights, which could have been red tail lights of a car, approx 20 in total each string.
Driving along the B6250 (B6260 - John @ UFOINFO) towards Appleby in Westmorland, after leaving Orton Scar, before entering Hoff Hamlet, my mother and I were driving along when I pointed out these red lights in the sky, which looked like singular car lights, approximately 20 of them, she said, of it looks like a train, this was then followed by about the same amount, the first ones just disappearing. I then said to mum, "but there is not a railway in this area" - "Oh no there isn't, well it must be, umm I don't know what, something on the road, or maybe a low flying plane", to which I replied, "Around here!, Oh my god, are we going 'around the bend'" both sets of lights had by this time disappeared.
There was no sound accompanying these lights - rather like a fast moving string of red Christmas lights, being pulled along very quickly and disappearing - not fading away, but disappearing, as if behind a cloud - but at the moment they were seen there was not a cloud in the sky. I felt this should be reported to someone, as there is a military base not too far away, as the crow (or red lights) fly.
