At about 1:55 am this morning while driving home along George Lane in BredBury near Stockport, I saw 5 light in the sky ahead. It was a nearly clear night sky and very cold. The lights were the yellow colour of fire and flickering slightly. I stopped the car and my wife and I got out to watch. The lights moved steadily over our heads along the line of the flight path to our local airport. There was no noise. The second light then came to the side of the first light and overtook it. After passing overhead then entered light cloud and one by one faded and disappeared. Immediately after a 6th light appeared ahead along the same path and passed over in about 2 minutes. I got in the car and started up then noticed the seventh again from the same origin and traveling the same direction. We got out again and watched. After moving fairly quickly overhead it seemed to virtually stop moving for about an minute then faded and disappeared. At no point was there any noise even though it was a very quiet night.
There was a little light cloud at from 1500 to 3000 feet and the lights were below at this level.
I am a doctor and UFO sceptic so I don't know what to make of these lights. We live on the airport flight path and are used to aircraft passing over. This was different. The light were far to close for aircraft and should not overtake if they were floating in the wind. They were traveling the same direction as the clouds but were catching up to them! then seemed to go through the clouds and slowly disappeared.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen but did not receive a reply.
