two bright moving object over my house

I’m in my second year at university in England I have good grades well known and liked and have a great family life. I have no reason to place a hoax sighting but I have always been interested in this sort of thing.

I was in my back garden at home with my partner and we were watching the meteor shower that was happening that night. Before you think that it may have been a meteor, it had no trails after it and was not moving like a meteor would. I was looking about the sky and at the stars when it looked as though one of the stars was moving. That’s the only way I can describe the shape and colour, as a star, it was pure bright white and had very little or no glow at all coming from it. Aircraft fly over my house and I no what they look and sound like, and the thing that I saw in the sky was nothing I had seen before. It had no flashing lights that come from a helicopter of plane and there was no noise, plus it was too far up in the sky for any plane or helicopter to fly. I followed it with my binoculars for about 35 seconds as it flew at a calm, steady speed in a straight line and lost visibility as it flew out of sight over the other houses. After about ten minutes I was looking about the sky through my binoculars when I saw something else move in the way I had saw the first object move. This one was a slightly different shape and duller than the first and looked to be higher in the sky. As it flew in the opposite direction to the first object, it appeared to meet with another shape and this one also moved but this may have been due to me moving so I just discarded the third one as nothing. The second object I saw moving was more of a longer shape like a rounded off cigar shaped object. It was duller than the first object I saw and was hard to see as it was so high up, even in the binoculars. I followed this one for about ten seconds before I lost sight of it. I do believe that what I saw was my very first UFO sighting and would really appreciate it if you looked into and got back to me via email.

I hope you find what I saw and good luck .
