colored lights over the mountains around Tucson

I am an RN. I am not a UFO watcher. I have never seen one but on this night my grandson and I were outside while I smoked. We were looking to the west over the Tucson mtns.

He noticed a bright yellow object moving slowly over the Tucson Mtns skyline .

He called my attention to the object and as we watched it travel it began to change colors.It went from white to bright orange and from a flat disk shape to an elongated cigar shape.

As it glowed brighter it began to move much faster and changed direction to the due east.

As it neared us we noted it made NO sound.It began to move over the Catalina mountains and 2 jets from Davis -Monthan air base began to give chase after it.

The object changed colors again from orange to white on top and red below.It got much closer as it again changed direction and headed south.The jets were not able to keep up with it.The object sped soouth and suddenly shot out of sight.This lasted 1-2 minutes.We kept looking over the mountains and talking about what we had just seen and the object returned .It was to the north over the Catalinas. It was still two colors,silent,cigar shaped and traveling at a high rate of speed.It was moving from west to east .Again jets gave chase.This time 3 planes went up.! plane was below it and two were climbing.They were not able to near the object at all.

It changed directions again and headed straight up.It was gone in seconds.

The entire incident lasted 3-4 minutes.

By it's very nature it was an unidentified flying object.
