Friends of mine have just reported the following sighting, that I
thought I would pass on to you.
This was the e-mail I received from them and the answers to my questions:
From Mr & Mrs K
It was the unusual light colour and configuration that drew our attention to the phenomena. The apparent lack of position light strobes red or green as common to most aircraft drew our curiosity which of course, due to travel was restricted to observation from the car. No chance of stopping as it was still within peak travel time.
