Circular UFO sited in the wymeswold area between Nottingham and Leicester.UK.on the A606.16.8.00/3.30am

I was driving over to Leicester from Nottingham,at about 3.30am.on the 16th.August.2000 on the A606 from Nottingham,when appoaching the turn off to Wymeswold I saw a huge circular thing in the sky,hovering over the fields my passenger and I watched this thing,which had red,green and white lights on it for sometimes possibly in the region of 15 mins.there was no noise coming from it.I t was a clear moonlit night with no clouds about we were astounded at this sight,and because my passenger was afraid I was unable to stop for a closer look.This object was a clear as a bell. Description :- Somewhat like a circle of red lights with intermitant green lights,white lights shining downwards.There was a great depth to this thing and it had a barely perceptable dome shape above it. I would be most grateful if anyone were able to throw some light on this thing,as it was 3.30am and there was no other traffic about.It was not that high in the sky and I have been out there since just to check that there were no buildings there,but it is just fields
