My wife just happend to look up from watching T.V. and was engaged by the vividness of the colours.

Red and green alternating with intermittent amber flashes, hovering to the north of Fritchley, Derbyshire, U.K. Still on-going so no time scale as yet. Tried to look at the object through binochulars, but could not achieve a sharp image, possible mist or haze surrounding which could be obscuring sighting. My best guess would be at about 50 miles from here due north. Possible aircraft apart from the fact that it is so still in the sky and is being so for so long. The sky is clear of any cloud/mist.
