Description: Whilst driving I saw in front of me an orange light hovering, which at first I took to be the police helicopter hovering over a nearby area as it does occasionally, though the light was orange. I then noticed a second identical orange light to my right slightly behind me, which as turned right, moved across me. I stopped the car and got out to listen and heard no aircraft sound. I drove a short distance home and quickly ran to a neighbours house where we watched the second orange light move quite quickly away in an East South Easterly direction (approx 120°), upwards (appearing smaller, but being partially obscured as it reached the distant higher cloud. The first light had already disappeared in that same direction by this time. The light stays the same when viewed from front side rear, so no red or white flashing lights.
We have witnessed the same phenomena (along with our neighbours) a couple of months ago, plus again in the summer last year. Point of origin is different but the direction of departure is always the same.
Any ideas, I've ruled out balloons, due to the purposeful (steered/navigated way these travel), aircraft, kites, flares (travel too straight, change direction, consistent brightness always in pairs.
Apart from one sighting over Mickleover, two years ago which again seemed like helicopter lights in the way it came over a local sports field, but no sound, moving low over the ground, then over trees, and moving swiftly away from us, still same orange glow. Different witnesses present!
