Sunny evening...shiney cigar shaped object moving slowly rotating...then disappeared, later followed by 3 military aircraft

About three years ago, I and two of my friends, were washing our cars in my freinds was about 18:00 (6pm) the sun was about an hour or two from setting. My freind ((Name deleted)) noticed a wierd looking object in the sky to the west. He drew my attention to the object as well as my other friend ((Name deleted)). The object i witnessed apeared to be bigger than a commercial airline, in the form of a long cigar (like a 747 with no wings or tail). The object hovered vertically, which was why i didn't think it was an airliner. It appeared to drift slowly to the north after about two it did this a white illumination encompassed it. The Illumination dimmed after about three minutes, and when it dimmed completely the object dissapeared (in no direction without sound) Just as we had convinced ourselves it was an airplane refecting the setting sun, a formation of 3 low flying, military style, black helicopters flew by directly over head in the direction we viewed the object. These helicopter were followed shortly after by 2 military jets (f-15? f-18? not really sure) at a much higher altitude but in the same direction....Coincidense?
