silent star-like ufo sighted in uk

on the evening in question my dog began to bark at something out side i went out and saw nothing until i looked up and saw what seemed to be a very bright star which was stationary until it began to move west at first it maoved slow but sped up and slowed down in bursts. it had know flashing beacons and made no noise at all. as it moved it appeared to cross the path of a flight of a passenger plane that was approaching the nearby airport which is around 4 miles away. as this plane came into view i clearly heard the engines of the plane. it arced to the east i thought no more of it even though it was the first time i had seen anything like it until on the following saturday there were a reported 200 sightings throughout the uk
