Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I was watching a helicopter flying above me. As I followed it, I noticed a black round object hovering in its flight path. As the helicopter approached, the object disappeared.

About 30 seconds after the helicopter left, the object reappeared and flew in a NE direction. The object was as high as the clouds and flew at what appeared to be the same rate as a commercial airliner. I followed it until it left out of my view.
