light blue sphere followed by dark helicopter in may of 2009 (Washington State)

on the evening in question last summer my girlfriend and I where walking home from the grocery store and decided to take a trail through a wooded area behind some buildings.

all the buildings we passed where business that where closed for the night.. a couple of those business had windows facing the wooded area. We noticed what appeared to be an elderly woman (70's 80's) in a robe in one of the windows? she looked terrified, as though she had seen a ghost and she was standing in the window with her arms outstretched from her sides. I was curious as to what she was even doing in this building which we new was vacant by this time every night, but more importantly what was she staring at? so I looked up to the portion of the sky that the woman appeared to be hypnotized by.. there was the object.. a solid light blue sphere. The object appeared over our head at about 8:50 pm. and seemed to be wobbling slightly up and down as it passed almost directly over our heads about 1200 - 1500 feet above the ground. The object appeared to be traveling at a steady 250 to 350 miles an hour and was void of any sound. We watched the object for about 45 seconds unti! l it left our field of view it was followed by an dark helicopter at the same general altitude (with sound) and and then a commercial jet flew over in a different direction (also with sound) about 30 seconds after that at a regular altitude of about 35,000 ft. I can trust my own judgment of this event due to the fact that I am very familiar with commercial and military aircraft due to a former profession (precision machinist & aviation mechanic) this object was NOT a regular AIRCRAFT and it definitely DID NOT employ the use of any conventional propulsion unit.
