Two orange lights travelling at high speed above the Burton Dasset hills, England

whilst travelling from Oxford to Southam by car my wife and myself witnessed an unusual event which we are unable to explain. When looking out of the car window we observed a single orange, flame like object in the sky above the Burton Dasset hills in Oxfordshire. It was approximatley 2 miles distance and was heading in our direction. As we watched it grew into 2 orange lights which appeared to be travelling at high speed. It was below cloud height and above the Burton Dasset hills which have been known to have unusual occurrances in the past. After a couple of minutes one of the orange lights just disappeared and then the other. There was no logical reason for the lights to be there as the area was rural with no houses or other buildings in the vicinity. There was no sound but it appeared that the orange light was emitting an auroa around itself before it disappeared from view.
