Duration:3 mins
Cluster of intense bluish white flashing lights, no 'solid' object visible.

Driving in busy town centre at night (could not hear any aircraft noise). Object was of the size of a regular aircraft and at an altitude of only a few hundred feet, but: I could not make out any outline of object; this 'object' was either one craft, or a cluster of three or more extremely bright white 'strobe' lights. What was unusual was that there were no coloured (ie. green/red) lights you'd associate with all light/small aircraft. This craft followed an 'arc' of approx 90 degrees, covering approx 1 mile. The lights disappeared suddenly, strange considering their intensity. The was no low cloud cover, therefore i do not think it was lights being project on/through a cloud base.
