Description: At 21:00 Myself and a few friends were having a BBQ in the back garden. At some point we noticed a black object hovering high in the sky above a local mill.
When we looked properly we also observed a second object higher up more to the north. Location of observers was (LON: -2.0705651, LAT: 53.4726527) facing N/NNE.
As we watched trying to work out what it was the first object descended and approached (seeming to grow larger). At this point we attempted to capture the object on mobile phone camera. One camera managed to take two pictures. However the second camera was in video mode, and when the camera was pointed at the object - it did not appear in the screen at all. The patch of sky showed - but no object, but it could still be seen by the naked eye.
I then switched my phone into video mode, and saw no object on the screen. I then switched back to camera mode and this time could not see the object even though I'd taken a 2 photos previously. The object was still in the same position, it remained like that for approximately one to two minutes and then headed off in a NNE direction at high speed. Disappearing from sight in approximately 2 seconds. The second higher object had also vanished (but we are not sure when).
We obviously started to discuss the incident after around 20 minutes we noticed one of the objects had returned further off to the east (but still in a NNE relation to us). It was drifting slowly.. we again attempted to get video and pictures, we again got one picture but no video due to the fact that it did not appear on the screen when the camera was in video mode. It again disappeared after approximately 2 minutes to the NNE at high speed and descending, it dropped out of sight in less than 20 seconds.
Just in case one of them came back again one of my friends went inside to get his binoculars. And after another 10 minutes one of the objects reappeared, again further east heading on a NNE course. This time my friend looked at the object through his binoculars and made a diagram of what he saw. We did not get any pictures or video of this last sighting.
