Description: Driving home from work from Northampton heading towards Wellingborough. Was coming up to a round about and footbridge over the dual carriageway and saw this dark mass over the footbridge that I had to drive under. I thought I would drive under the Footbridge and get out my car and take a look.
As I drove under the footbridge I could see lights underneath it, and hear a low humming noise and thought this doesn't feel right, and there was no other car in sight either direction. One side of the dual carriageway was houses and the other side was fields. I just put my foot on the gas and got home as fast as I could, it scared me. As I looked in my Mirror I saw it just take off in a forward motion, fast. I told all my family about it.
The next day in the newspaper it said UFO sighting over Northampton. I have been to lots of Air Shows in England and California, where I now Live and talked to people. There is nothing that can hover like that with no noise or down thrust. My only regret was I didn't report it and get that footbridge checked out. I was too scared to get out my car at the time and even now it still scares me, so I did the right thing there.
