brilliantly flashing flying objects
We (my son,daughter and I)were outside watching the stars after the rain we have had the sky was very clear and the stars were bright. We noticed a very bright star and notices a star off to the right or the bright one brilliantly sparkling. We were talking about how bright the colors were when it jumped to the right and left again. We looked at each other and my kids said cool. The light stopped sparkling and got bright white and a circle formed around it and it disappeared. My kids were dumbfounded standing there looking at me for an explanation. Two military helicopters flew down our valley and over the mountains were we viewed the object. Shortly after the choppers disappeared over the mountain another brilliantly flashing object flew silently overhead and veered away. We heard a jet coming and it altered course to chase the flashing object toward the east. We went to bed shortly after that.
