Duration:1 minute
Oval-shaped white object flew across north Oklahoma City and disappeared. Helicopter appeared to look for it seconds after it vanished.

Hello, Was idly staring out my fifth-floor window overlooking downtown Oklahoma City looking north when a white object that appeared to be round was zipping across the city from west to east. It went behind an apartment building and emerged on the other side and then disappeared in front of a cloud.

Then, about 15 seconds later, I see a black-colored helicopter come in from the east and stop at the very spot where this object had vanished. It hovered there for about 20 seconds and then went back east and out of my line of vision.

One thing about this object is that it seemed to be revolving on its axis, because it would go white and gray and white again. Very strange.

I would add that two days earlier, around the same time, I was 20 miles south in Norman, Oklahoma having lunch with my father-in-law, when I saw a bright object of similar size traveling in much the same fashion. The difference was is that it seemed to leave a short "exhaust" trail or something behind it before disappearing in front of a cloud. I should also note that Tinker AFB is not far away from both sighting locations.
