UFO sighting ,Nottingham England.Bright light eventually appeared to grow and change shape b4 vanishing

Whilst putting my son to bed on Sunday night (25th Sept 2005) I noticed a bright light in the sky, which I initially thought was a star. After watching it for a few seconds I saw that it was moving erratically throughout the sky and was too bright for a 'normal' star. Also, the sky was not yet dark.

After watching it move around the sky for a couple of minutes, the object suddenly appeared to grow in size and vanish. At this point, an aeroplane comes into view. I captured the latter end of this on our video camera. When playing this on our TV, we can clearly see that at the point the object appeared to grow and change it becomes a spherical shape with a rotating circle running around the middle of it. It is far larger in size at this point and it also moves at some speed after this, which probably explains how it 'vanished'. We often see planes in the sky, as we are on a flight path, so the appearance of the plane is not unusual. It's almost as if the 'UFO' saw the plane and wanted to get out of its way.
