jets investigate strange light

i was on my patio and a noticed a strange light in the westward sky. it would get bright then dim, over and over again. it would also move vertically up and down. i sent my brother a text to have him go out and look. he soon called me and stated he and a friend were pulled over along hwy 40 watching the same light. from my home in terre haute it was about the size of a dime in the sky. from my brothers location, west of terre haute, near marshall illinois, he said it was about the size of a quarter or 1/2 dollar. we remained on the phone with each other watching the object when 2 jets came from the south. my brother stated he was able to hear the jets. when the jets got close to the object it got extreamly bright and then just vanished. there was a sonic boom when the object vanished. i did not hear it from my location in terre haute, but i heard it over the phone from where my brother was. several of my coworkers who live in the marshall illinois! area report hearing a "boom" or explosion
