Mesa, AZ: "Helicopter" with bright light outside bedroom at 4am.

My wife and I simultaneously awoke to a loud noise outside our window. It sounded as if a helicopter was taking off right in our backyard! My wife sprang up and looked through the blinds, seeing only a bright white light. She ran through the house to catch a glimpse out the arcadia window, but within a second or two the object had completely vanished, leaving no sound, no light, no trace. The time was about 4:30am. We both had trouble going back to sleep. Just prior to waking I was having a dream that I was floating or bouncing down a long dark street, accompanied by strangers (possibly police officers) and arriving at a house or a window. The sound I awoke to reminded me of a military helicopter, but why it would be in or just outside our backyard I cannot understand. A month or two earlier my wife was driving on a fairly desolate road and saw a very fast-moving "helicopter" with a bright white light "coming toward her." She turned and it vanished quickly. If you have had any reports of helicopters appearing outside bedroom windows in East Mesa, please let us know. We are curious to learn what is going on. Thank you.
