large 'craft' 20 foot above my car with blue lights

I am posting this 3 years later - i thought i had posted this info here before but its not listed so...

i went to a local reservoir between sheffield and manchester. i was talking to a friend on a mobile/cell phone. the area is in pitch darkness/middle of the countryside. i became surrounded by blue flashing lights. i assumed a police car was coming along the road and said this to friend. no car passed so i looked behind expecting to see it parked - there was no car anywhere to be seen. i looked at the only other explaination - up into the sky.there was a large circular craft above the car.it was stationary and light blue glittery lights were coming from the bottom of it.I panicked and started the car up.as i did so a loud screaming of high pitched engine noise came from the craft, then a low thundering noise as it very slowly and gently moved away. as i drove off i could see the craft fly across the reservoir and could see it was encircled with small red lights round the edge of it.it had been less than 20 feet above me but i hadnt heard anything from it until i started the car engine.all the noises of it were heard by my friend on the phone. there were reports in manchester evening news paper later that week.im 41 and not mad.
