I was lying in bed on the second floor of my home.My bed is right next to the window so i can enjoy the view.I heard a rotary wing aircraft approaching and sat up.Normaly just that sound wouldn't cause me to be curious ,but the fact that i was trained by the U.S. Army as an air defense early warning scout alerted me to the sound of the aircraft. It was very loud,like a large cargo helecopter or a smaller helo moving fast to keep up whith something.So i looked out and saw the exterior lights moving east southeast at approx. 200 feet.I started to look for a second helo thinking the sound could be from multiple craft and thats when i saw the large dark shape moving on the same azimuth.I could see no exterior lights and the shape was difficult to determine as i spoted it just before i lost line of sight.I climbed out the window onto the roof but could only see the exterior's of the helo continueing on an easterly course.
