Bright light of sky visitor just disappears in front of car full of witnesses

Whilst driving home from shopping at approximately 20:20 on around the 26th February i was ascending up a hill into my village when i spotted a bright glow in the sky. Just as a joke i mentioned to my fellow passengers that there was a spaceship on fire in the sky. They all dismissed what i had to say and looked up to see if they could see what i had just spotted.

At this point they turned to me and said they agreed with what i had seen and to slow down. I took a second look because i had only joked about it, I pulled over to the side of the road as to not cause a road traffic accident, and on studying it further it appeared to me that it was a very strange shape and i started to panic that it was an aircraft on fire. If i hadn't watched it for a while i could have dismissed it as a hot air balloon. But, what would an air balloon be doing in the skys at that time of night. Then i had the strangest thought that it may have been a handglider, or some type of air travel, perhaps motorised, on fire.

By this time traffic was building up and the object had seemed to float above us. It was quite big. And also very low. I grabbed for my phone to try and record this occurrence and jumped out of the car to get a better view. I couldn't set my phone to night mode to make it more visible quick enough and in an instant it had shot upwards into the sky and disappeared into nothing.

On analyzing what i had seen for many days and complete disection of my state of mind i have come to the conclusion that this is factual. May not necessarily be another lifeform, but definately unexplainable. Had i been on my own i probably would have dismissed it and never mentioned it but it was magical. All three of us saw and eperienced it together.
