Blue diamonds behind a bright white streak

I am an english man from south east midlands, i travel to Holland every year as it is a favourite holiday destination for me and my wife. We normaly stay in a hotel in Amsterdam, traveling to places like Haarlem and Beverwijk. This year we decided for a change seeing as we had gone to Amsterdam for the last 3 summers. We went to a place called Den Helder on the Northern tip of Holland. The place was beatiful, we enjoyed the first 2 days of the Holiday greatly. On the 3rd night at about 8:30 we settled down to a lovely specialised Dutch dinner at the wonderful De Yperhof Restaraunt. We spent the night eating and reflecting on the past few days. At around 9:30pm we got ready to leave, we left the building out the front entrance. As soon as we left the restaraunt there was a bright white streak of what looked like flour fill the sky. It was amazing, at first we thought it must be some type of odd dutch firework, but after a minute it started to fade like rising fog. Behind this 'powder' we could see a few little blue diamond/kite shaped crafts wizzing round and round. I didn't get too good a look through the white streak which went off onto the horizon. I could make out a white light on the tip of the diamond but when i reached for my glasses to get a closer look they had vanished. It was a thrilling experience and one i am likely never to forget. It really shookme and will change my view on alien inteligence for ever. I'm not sure who saw it apart from me and my wife, if you did see something like this that night then be assured your werent seeing things.
