Four witnesses see a large glowing circle exchanges fire with 6 fighter jets

My mother heard jet noises over her home this eveining. When she looked up there was a orange-yellow glowing circle object in the night sky. It was being chased by at least 6 fighter jets. She said, if you compare the size of the UFO to the jets. The jets would be the size of the lead end of a pencil and the UFO would be the size of a half dollars. She actually saw the UFO being fired upon by the jets and returning fire. Then the UFO quickly disappeared to the west.

There was 3 other people present all of them saw the same scene. The older 2 people are in there Seventies and said they had never seen anything like it before and where very surprised almost to the point of shock.
