Circular object with ring of lights seen flying over Southampton, UK

My friend and I were sitting in the back garden, it was dark and partly cloudy. We both noticed a shape travelling North east to South West across the sky at the same time. We could not see the shape of the object all I could see was a series of lights arranged in a circle.

It appeared to be flying as fast as a normal plane and was fairly high in the sky as it dissapeared over the clouds. I thought I could hear the drone of a distant engine although my friend said it was silent. We watched it until it went out of view, it was heading out of Southampton and across the English Channel.

I am completely sane and have not seen anything like this before, nor do I believe in UFO's. Did anyone else seen this over the UK? Could it be some kind of special military plane?
