|Bright light hovers over trees then begins strobing and appearsr to intersect with plane while flying away.
I was driving southward on High Street in Dunstable, when an incredibly bright light caught my eye to my left. I looked at it, noticing that it wasn't very high up, about 1/4 mile from the ground, about a 1/2 mile away from me, hovering over a field and some trees. From my view's distance, it was about the size of a small marble. I kept glancing at it, and when I realized that it wasn't moving I slammed on my brakes. I couldn't believe how bright it was, and I was so amazed that I exclaimed out loud to myself, lowered my window and checked to see if there were any other cars coming. It was like a huge twinkling floating spotlight. At this point the object changed from being one very bright light into 3 strobing white lights, blinking in turn. When it began to blink, the object silently began to move southwards, parallel to my path, and I started to drive again. It had crossed over in front of me, I was heading down a hill, there were some trees in my view. I kept braking to keep it in sight, suddenly it seemed to be heading more west, then east, then it distinctively was heading west, gaining altitude, and I saw an airplane about to intersect with it. At this point the blinking object was about the same size as the plane, a pinhead, they looked as though they met, but each kept going, and within seconds I lost the object over the trees, as the plane continued east. The plane's lights weren't noticeable, and it left a slight trail of exhaust. What had amazed me was that the object initially wasn't moving, was incredibly bright, and fairly low to the ground, then changed its lights, and moved silently and quickly, appearing to change its direction multiple times. When I first noticed it I knew it wasn't normal, there are never planes that low to the ground in this rural farm area, and any helicopters I've seen out there are noisy and have more to them than lights.
