Sighting Details

I was driving home from work in bolton, through little lever towards bury at 2am on tues 15th july 2014. I noticed a very bright white light high in the sky ahead of me. I didn't think too much of it at first just thought it was a low plane. I noticed when i had a side view of the light it had a very bright red light that was flickering almost strobing & due to the large size & brightness of the red light i found myself watching it as i drove. It was at this point i realised it could not have been a plane or helicopter because of the way it moved. It wasn't particularly fast but it alternated between hovering & changing direction, all directions. I pulled over to watch & after a couple of minutes i was convinced it was not anything i had seen before. The red strobe light was amazing to watch & i then noticed it was getting a bit bigger & that there was also a green light but not as big or as bright as the red. I got my camera phone & took a couple of pictures but very disappointingly they were very grainy and dark & the lights were moving between the gaps between the houses so i never caught it on camera. I drove up the street and parked again to get a better look through the gaps and then watched for another few minutes (probably watched for 5-8mins in total) before deciding i should just head home. As i drove away the red strobe light was getting bigger & brighter & i felt a little uneasy at this point so i decided to drive home on main roads rather than the quieter more rural roads i normally drive home. As i turned a corner onto bury bolton road i saw the light were a lot bigger i slowed down & watched from my drivers side window i was about to stop & get my phone out again when it seemed to be slowing lowering & then its shape slowly appeared as if through a light cloud but it was lower than the clouds. It was a very dark/black triangular shaped object & it appeared to be large. It was still slowly lowering & at this point i became very spooked & felt i couldn't even look at it anymore, it was a very disturbing experience & i just wanted to get away & get home, i continued to drive home again along the main roads rather than my usual route as i felt extremely uneasy. I did notice the object rose again & the red light was still visible up in the sky. This experience has disturbed me & i'm not quite sure what to do about it. I would love to hear from anyone who saw these lights or object on this day as i believe there is no way anyone out at that time in the area did not see it too.
