Description: Firstly, I'd like to point out what I observed wasn't a firework. Around 7pm my ears pricked up to fast jet activity in the area, which was particularly loud, we seldom see fast jets flying over head so I thought it was odd, when I went out to tend to my dog at 8pm I looked up at the moon in a South-Easterly direction and observer two red lights, solid, not flashing, bright red in colour. I thought these were fireworks so watched for them exploding, they didn't. So I then thought these were flares, as they were simply hanging in the air. One of the lights then darted downwards, closely followed by the other one, they speed with which they moved and changed direction immediately ruled out this being an aircraft or fast jet, as extreme direction changes happened almost instantaneously.
I observed the two lights along with an ASDA delivery driver delivering my home shopping for around 10 minutes, shortly after two fast jets passed over head from the NW heading SE at around 3,000-5,000ft on full afterburners in the direction of the red lights. Around 5 seconds later the red lights accelerated from stationary south and disappeared over the horizon taking around 10 seconds to pass from view.
Around 8.45 I heard more fast jet activity and stepped out the front of my house and saw two more fast jets pass overhead heading NW to SE, I looked up into the SE sky and observed the two red lights again, around 10 seconds later they accelerated upwards and disappeared from view within around 5 seconds. I then observed the two fast jets come off full afterburner and start a shallow turn to the right, rolling out heading NW and disappear over the horizon.
