was asleep at 1am and my dog woke me up growling at the window. i looked out and saw a red light over heywood area. at first thought it was a helicopter but hear no noise which at th distance i hear very loud. the object ascended and descended very quickly almost ‘bobbing’ up and down which confirmed wasnt a plane or helicopter (i used to work as a aircraft engineer in the royal navy mainly on the seaking and i would know what an aircraft looks like from tht distance and know it couldnt do the things that object did and with no apparent noise) and hovered for about 2minutes. I ran upstairs to wake up my parents and get a better view from their balcony window and the object was stil stationary and another red light appeared as if from nowhere and they both shot off to the east out of sight.
