Many bright orange circluar objects/lights, hovering slowly to the east up and down in a random motion.

Four of us were camping on a remote field off a public footpath, between St.Ives and Houghton. Two of us went outside the tent, and two sat inside the tent with the hatch open; it was dark and a clear night, with a few stars. The field we were staying on is quite a steep hill and you can see the rest of our town from it. Although to the North of the field (of which we were facing), is a disused animal testing place, surrounded by dense woodland. The field is flat to the north.

One of us looked up at the sky to see a few dotted bright orange lights, moving randomly up and down hovering slowly over towards the east/north-east. She quickly alerted us, and we all looked up at the sky. We were really frightened and were practically paralyzed by fear, and just couldn't stop looking at the things infront of us.

They appeared from no-where, and more just kept appearing, moving in the same direction (what seemed to to be east). We couldn't tell if they were close or not, but we could make them out quite clearly. From where we were they looked as big as our fingernail on our little fingers.

They slowly moved downwards beyond the trees, and out of our sight, we kept a look out, but we didn't see anything else after that.

Although near by there is an RAF base, but as it was a very early saturday morning, it seemed unlikely that it would be aircraft, especially as they were going very slow and the unpredictable movements they were making.
